About Community Development
Lo
cation: City Hall, 3338 Coolidge Highway, Berkley, MI 48072

Community Development administers the city’s land use ordinances, laws, and policies and the Master Plan.  The department works with residents and businesses to complete building expansions and improvements.  It also implements local, state, and federal policies and laws when facilitating new developments in the city.

The Community Development Director plays an important role in implementing the appropriate measures to maintain the character and charm of city neighborhoods.  This includes, but is not limited to, responding to requests for rezoning and special land use, reviewing business licenses, sign permits, and coordinating the activities of the Planning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals.

The Code Enforcement Division ensures that residential and commercial properties are maintained in compliance with city and state ordinances.   Code Enforcement Officers patrol the city and respond to concerns on a variety of topics such as vermin control, junk, and debris on city rights of way, and other matters that violate local ordinances. They also conduct building inspections and plan reviews to ensure compliance with fire codes.

In December 2018, the Planning Commission adopted a Public Participation Plan that will serve as a guide to gathering information from residents and key stakeholders during the planning and development review and approval processes.
