 Zoning Resolution and Map

Since 1952, Genoa Township has utilized a locally adopted Zoning Resolution to provide for orderly devleopment and use of land in the township and to protect the public health, safety and welfare of township residents. The Zoning Resolution identifies the intents and purposes of adopted regulations, defines zoning terms, creates zoning districts, establishes which uses are and are not permitted in each district, sets forth dimensional requirements for each district, and describes administrative and enforcement procedures related to zoning. The color-coordinated Zoning Map illustrates the specific zoning district classification for each parcel within the Township.
