There are different types of zoning districts here in Coldwater Township; Industrial, Commercial, Residential and Agriculture. This tool is used by our local government to decide what can and can’t be the appropriate use of a person or companies land.

If you are planning to remodel any structure, build an addition, or are planning any new construction, including adding/replacing fences or storage buildings, you must contact the Township Zoning Administrator Robert Hawley at 517-279-9388 Ext.5 BEFORE you start.
