In Development: New Comprehensive Plan
A new Comprehensive
Plan is being developed for Birmingham Township to help guide township in
the effort to meet the needs of residents for the next ten-year period.
Planning Commission is seeking volunteers to assist with writing sections of
the plan. The effort is divided into two main parts:
1. assessing the current status of the township and resident preferences
with respect to development of the township (draft completed)
2. writing a plan to achieve the objectives that derive from resident
choices and the current state of the township (work to begin in October).
The Planning Commission will hold two identical meetings on Sept. 18th and
24th at 7:30 PM in the Birmingham Township building. Information from the
2010 Census, land use maps, natural features maps, housing stock report and
other sources will be discussed. That information has been used to form the
background part of the Comprehensive Plan for Birmingham Township
(2014-2015). By attending this meeting you will:
• Know more about your township and how it became what it is,
• Be prepared to volunteer to assist with writing one or more of the
sections in the Comprehensive Plan (we hope). Working sessions to develop
the topics required in a Comprehensive Plan will be held in October and
