Planning & Zoning Department

Shelby Logo rgb  The Shelby Township Master Plan is a policy document created by the Shelby Township Planning Commission to guide the future growth and development of the township. A sound master plan helps ensure that Shelby Township remains a highly desirable place to live, work, or visit. 

Currently, the township is in the review phase before final adoption of the new 2017 master plan. A key part of the review process is feedback from residents and community partners. Click the link below to view the 2017 draft master plan, and email to provide your feedback to the township's planning commission and the planning and zoning department.

The Planning and Zoning Department has two principal functions: 1) supervising the long range planning for the community and 2) the review of all development proposals submitted to the Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals. As part of this function the department is responsible for the administration of the Zoning Ordinance and other land development regulations including the Woodland Preservation Ordinance and the Subdivision Ordinance.

The Planning and Zoning Department also provides professional and administrative staff to both the Planning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals. This particular function includes the preparation of agendas, coordination of reviews with other departments and public notification requirements.  

The department provides a variety of township maps and other development related information.  The department is also responsible for administering the Township's annual Community Development Block Grant program.
