-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The completed building and zoning permit applications must be approved by the Zoning Official before the building permit can be issued.  269-445-3988 for the Zoning Official.  There is a fifty dollar fee for this approval.  Checks made payable to LAGRANGE TOWNSHIP.  With the zoning permit there must also be a "birds-eye view" of the entire parcel showing all existing structures and proposed structures with the distance from ALL of them to ALL property lines.  This "birds-eye view" will also be given to the Building Inspector.

IF YOU START CONSTRUCTION BEFORE THE PERMITS ARE ISSUED, ALL FEES ARE DOUBLED.

Property line adjustments, splits, combinations, etc. must also be approved by the Zoning Official.



DO NOT SEND TO THE STATE OF MICHIGAN











The Zoning Ordinance indicates what can be built and where it can be built.  The Ordinance also shows what each parcel in the Township can be used for.  Including the minimum size of structures and where they can be located on the parcel.  Regulations governing fences (Section 15.05), swimming pools (Section 15.11), signs (Section 17 ), etc. are also in the Ordinance.   Each zoning district such as residential, lake residential, commercial, agricultural, etc. has its own regulations.  Just because you have a house on a parcel does not mean it is zoned residential, and just because you farm it doesn't mean it is zoned "AG"   I would advise you to check the Zoning Map to confirm what zoning district you are in.

The Noise Ordinance and Vehicle Ordinance are "stand alone" Ordinances.  These Ordinances do not have a "grandfather" clause, so just because you have done it for twenty years does not mean you can do it now















If you would like to rezone your property or do something on you property that is not allowed in the Zoning Ordinance, you will need one of the permits above.  There is a TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLAR FEE PAYABLE TO LAGRANGE TOWNSHIP for these applications to be processed (except zoning which is fifty and needed with building permits)














These sewer and water system maps are here so that you can see which parcels have public sewer and water available to them.






There is also a lot of information at the Cass County web site.  You can look-up taxes, any parcel in the County, and all County services.
