The Planning and Zoning Department provides services and support to Hudsonville’s citizens and business owners, developers, the general public, the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Planning Commission, the Downtown Development Authority and the City Commission.

The Department’s goal is to do its part to preserve and improve a quality community in which to live, work and play.  This is done through long and short-range planning efforts, reviewing proposals for development and property improvements, and with code enforcement.

Code enforcement of Hudsonville’s codes is done to ensure compliance with the city’s laws and regulations, which serve to protect the health, safety and welfare of Hudsonville.  Enforcement also helps properties to maintain their values.

The department also participates in fostering economic growth and business and industry attraction in part through working with the Downtown Development Authority and the Hudsonville Area Marketing Coordinator.

A couple of other tasks completed by this department include being Hudsonville’s board member for Regis, the city’s GIS database, and being Hudsonville’s board member on the Grand Valley Metro Council Technical Committee, which plays a part in obtaining federal funding for road projects.

Some of this department’s key documents can be found on the  Plans & Maps page.
