The completed building and zoning permit applications must be approved by the Zoning Official before the building permit can be issued. Call 269-535-7463 too contact 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.  Property line adjustments, splits, combinations, etc. must also be approved by the Zoning Official.

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

DO NOT SEND TO THE STATE OF MICHIGAN. MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO LAGRANGE TOWNSHIP.







All electrical permits must be submitted and approved by the Electrical Inspector.

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 your property that is not allowed in the Zoning Ordinance, you will need one of the following permits.  There is a FIVE HUNDRED DOLLAR FEE, PAYABLE TO LAGRANGE TOWNSHIP for these applications to be processed.









If you would like to split or divide your property or combine your contiguous properties you will need to apply for a Land Division / Combination.  There is a TWO HUNDRED FIFTY DOLLAR FEE, PAYABLE TO LAGRANGE TOWNSHIP for these applications to be processed.




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.
