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.

The 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 November.
