Farmington Hills Offers Updated Planning Maps
The City of Farmington Hills has updated its online atlas using GIS (geographic information system) technology to produce high-quality, detailed maps. If you’re a planner, a developer or an interested resident, there is now an easily accessible resource for the latest information about any parcel of land located in the City.
Through a partnership between the Departments of Planning and Community Development and Central Services, the atlas was produced to help answer frequent map-oriented inquiries from the public. Common questions involve zoning designations, subdivision locations, and information on tax parcels.
“The Planning and Community Development Atlas will provide residents, developers and engineers with detailed maps of the community to help them with a variety of projects,” GIS Coordinator Matt Malone said. “This new version of the atlas has more details, especially the Average Daily Traffic Count map that features recent data for most major intersections.”
The Planning Atlas currently contains the following eight maps: Zoning Districts; Master Plan for Future Land Use; Topographic Contours and Color Aerial Photography; Tax Parcels and Lots; School Districts and Subdivisions; Roadway Jurisdiction; Soils Information; and Average Daily Traffic Counts and Speed Limits.
The maps are formatted in a standard page-sized Adobe PDF and are available for printing or for online viewing.
