The Department of Planning and Community Development frequently
deals with the public regarding questions that are map-oriented
in nature. Common questions involve the zoning designation of a
tax parcel, subdivision locations, and information on tax
parcels. In order to assist the public with these map inquiries,
the City’s Geographic Information System (GIS) housed in Central
Services has teamed up with Planning and Community Development
to create a detailed map atlas of square-mile sections within
the City to assist residents, developers, and builders.
The Planning Atlas currently contains the following eight
maps: zoning districts; master plan for future land use;
five-foot topographic contours and color aerial photography
(April 2010); tax parcels and lots; schools and subdivisions;
roadway jurisdiction; soils information, and average daily
traffic counts. Conveniently formatted in a standard page-sized
Adobe PDF, the maps are available for viewing online or
Please note that the tax parcel maps utilize very small text
due to the large number of labels showing parcel dimensions. In
order to print out a legible portion of the map you will need to
zoom into your area of interest and load Adobe Reader’s
“Snapshot” tool. The tool is available in Adobe Reader X by
selecting the Edit menu and choosing Take a Snapshot. You can
then use the tool to draw an area of interest on the map. After
choosing the area for printing, select Print and ensure that the
Print Range is set for Selected Graphic.
All maps are for general reference information only. The maps
will be updated periodically and may not reflect current parcel
splits, combinations or zoning designations. If you have any
questions or comments concerning the maps please contact
Planning and Community Development at (248) 871-2550.

The release date for the current atlas is December 2011.
Please note that section 27 is not included in the atlas as it
lies completely within the City of Farmington.
