Oshtemo Charter Township, Kalamazoo County, Michigan Village Theme Development Plan

The intersection of Stadium Drive and 9th Street was once the heart of the Township and the center of commercial activity. Over time, however, development pressure has taken the commercial market to other parts of the Township leaving this area, now the DDA district, in a confused state of land uses and building designs.

McKenna planners worked with the DDA to develop a theme for the future development of the district and begin to create guidelines for implementing that theme. The Theme Development Plan will be the basis for a zoning overlay district utilizing formed-based code techniques.
