Department of Strategic Impact

Planning Commission

On October 27, 2020, the Ottawa County Board of Commissioners voted to dissolve the Ottawa County Planning Commission. This decision was made due to all twenty-four municipalities within Ottawa County maintaining zoning ordinances and planning commissions, rendering the county planning commission a solely-advisory body. These advisory duties will continue to be performed by the Department of Strategic Impact with oversight by the Board of Commissioners.
