City Zoning Ordinances

The city exercises its police powers by enacting ordinances. Through April 14, 2003, the city council has adopted 397 ordinances stretching from May 1955.

Currently, the city has its general ordinances compiled in a large "black book" called the City of Keego Harbor Code of Ordinances. These are the regulations that affect all facets of our daily lives.

Under the administration of former City Manager Michael Steklac, the city brought together all its active ordinances into one source. The City Council on January 18, 2001, adopted the Keego Harbor Code of Ordinances. To date the city has updated the Code twice. A current copy of the Code is on file in the Office of the City Manager.

When it adopted the Code, the council chose not to include the Zoning Ordinance. The Zoning Ordinance is the city's only regulatory "stand alone" ordinance. The Zoning Ordinance sets the land use and property rights regulations for the city.

At this time only the Zoning Ordinance appears on the website.
