Community Development

Clarkston’s Planning/Economic and Development department is responsible for the review and processing of zoning requests, zoning variances, conditional use permits, code amendments, notification for public hearings, annexations, and custodian of official zoning maps and long-range plans.  The Planning and Development Department aims to facilitate efficient city development while ensuring future growth. To strengthen and protect each neighborhood while supporting state-of-the-art businesses and real estate development. This, in turn, will create new jobs, lay the groundwork for quality land development, and broaden Clarkston’s tax base, drastically improving each resident’s quality of life—today, tomorrow, and in the future.
