A Collaborative Effort with Spring Lake Township

The Village of Spring Lake adopted a Master Plan in 2006. The Master Plan is a document intended to guide future development in the community. The Village also reviews and revises its Zoning Ordinance each year, through the Village Council and Zoning Board of Appeals.

The Zoning Administrator makes sure the Master Plan and the Village's Zoning Ordinance work together toward an organized plan for the city's future.

Short Term Rentals

Short-term vacation rentals are permitted in the Village, but only in certain zoning districts. Historically, the Village has not tracked which rentals are long-term versus short-term. As websites such as VRBO and AirBnB become more popular and homes are converted to short-term rentals, the number of complaints have increased. These complaints require the Village to become more proactive with enforcement. If you have a short term rental or you are considering investing in one, we encourage you to contact our office to ensure it is a permitted use. Lukas Hill, Zoning Administrator, would be happy to walk you through the process or take any complaints you may have about an existing short-term rental at 844-2110 or LHill@springlaketwp.org
