Master Land Use Plan
Master Land Use Plan

The Master Land Use Plan, which can be viewed in the links below, provides a graphic illustration of the planned land use for all properties within the City of Auburn Hills. This plan is a guide for future land use development. It reflects a policy statement which is directive rather than regulatory and is subject to change when appropriate conditions and principles of planning can be met.  This policy is implemented via zoning and development proposals.
