|Acme Township is a master planned community. The
Acme Township Master
Plan was adopted by the Acme Township Planning Commission on May 27, 1999 and has been amended several times through the summer of 2007.
An updated Acme Township
Zoning Ordinance became effective December 1, 2008. Both documents change over time as the needs and desires of the community change.
In association with creation of the Master Plan, two community surveys were conducted:
Acme Township Community Attitude Survey - March 1996
Acme Township Visual Preference Survey - December 1996
MASTER PLAN UPDATE
Commission would like to announce that they are beginning their 5 year review of
the Acme Township Master Plan. This document is to guide the township 20 years
into the future in regards to commercial and residential growth, infrastructure,
land preservation, land uses and more. It will also guide future changes to our
zoning ordinance. The Planning Commission will have work sessions on the Master
Plan before its regular monthly meetings, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The public is
welcome to come to these work sessions to give input, as well as other work
sessions that will be planned in the following months. The next scheduled
May 13th at 7:00 p.m.
