County Building Department
While all development within the City of Stanton must be in compliance with City ordinances and zoning regulations, building permits and inspections are obtained through the Montcalm County Building Department. Their website contains directions and applications for making these and other requests, along with building code requirements and informationational construction resources.
This Master Plan is prepared under the authority of PA 33 of 2008, the Michigan Planning Enabling Act. It is intended to serve as the policy basis for the city Zoning Ordinance and to guide decisions by the City Commission on land use, infrastructure and economic development issues in conjunction with other planning documents such as the Downtown Development Plan and the Parks and Recreation Plan.
This document also contains several maps and visuals that may assist with development decisions based on topography, wetland areas, soil conditions, planned future land use, and demographics.
