Phone: 231-534-4284

The regular monthly meeting of the Zoning Board of Appeals shall be on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the Long Lake Township Hall located at 8870 North Long Lake Road unless otherwise noticed. Applications for the Zoning Board of Appeals shall be submitted at least 45 days prior to a scheduled meeting.


The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) hears and decides matters brought before it under the provisions of the Long Lake Township Zoning Ordinance.  Such matters are primarily requests for a variance from a required building setback or other dimensional provisions of the Zoning Ordinance.  The ZBA will also hear some appeals of an administrative decision or interpret the zoning ordinance at the request of staff or an applicant.

The application form for a variance request can be found to the left.  Contact staff for additional information prior to preparing your application.  Staff will help to determine if you require a variance and if your request is eligible for appeal under local and state law.
