Zoning Board of Appeals

Like the Planning Commission, the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is a non-political five member body, plus one alternate, comprised of residents and other stakeholders.  One member of the ZBA is also a member of the Planning Commission.  The ZBA is responsible for hearing appeals on administrative decisions, requests for interpretation of the Zoning Ordinance, dimensional and other non-use variances, and use variances. 

All Independence Township Zoning Board of Appeals Meetings will be held at the Independence Township Meeting Room, 6483 Waldon Center Drive, Clarkston, Michigan, 48346 at 7:00 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month as indicated below:
