The intent of this plan is to provide general guidelines that will provide
the framework for other community plans and zoning tools to help insure that
communities develop as residents desire.

enumerate powers and duties; to provide for the coordinated and harmonious
development of Osceola County; and to function in cooperation with other
constituted authorities of incorporated and unincorporated areas within

plan on file with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment.

Environmental Protection Act, 1994 P.A. 451, as amended, Part 115, Solid
Waste Management, and its Administrative Rules, requires that each county
have a Solid Waste Management Plan Update approved by the Michigan
Department of Environmental Quality. This is Osceola County's plan.
