Oceana County Michigan

The Land Division Act, formerly known as the Subdivision Control Act (Act 288 of the Public Acts of Michigan of 1967, as amended by Act 591 of the Public Acts of 1996) requires the County Drain Commissioner to publish rules governing the internal drainage of proposed subdivision and outlets for drainage.  The rules are intended to assist land developers by providing uniform procedures to be followed in the processing of preliminary and final plats, construction drawings, and establishments of county drains and their branches within these subdivisions.

In 2004, the Oceana County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution acknowledging and recognizing the Oceana County Drain Commissioner Subdivision Drainage Rules and Storm Water Design Criteria and authorized the fee schedule set forth therein.

A Soil Erosion Control Permit, associated permit fees, Engineering Review Deposit, and Stormwater Maintenance Agreement are to be submitted for new developments.  See Subdivision Drainage Rules and Stormwater Design Criteria below.
