Zoning ensures that the Township Ordinances are followed and maintained. Zoning also provides professional administrative staff to the Zoning Board of Appeals. Administrative duties include preparation of agendas and public notificaitons, review of construction permits for compliance with the Ordinance, site plan review and processing of all variance requests for the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Zoning is also responsible for issuing zoning permits for permanent as well as temporary/portable signs and agricultural structures and the inspections of such permits to ensure compliance with the Holland Charter Township Zoning Ordinance.
