Get Started

The City of Muskegon is committed to positioning our community as the State’s premier year-round waterfront community. We are building a community that is attractive and profitable for private investors as well as welcoming, enjoyable, and affordable for residents and visitors.

Implementing policies that incentivize job creation and investment while meeting the City’s principles of urban planning reflect a dedication to moving our community forward to benefit all who live, work, and visit here. Successful community investments require partnerships, and we will walk alongside and help guide you through the building and development process to successfully complete your project.

One-Stop-Shop Meeting

The City of Muskegon’s Development Services Division offers free “One-Stop-Shop” meetings for developers that would like a comprehensive review of their development project before they submit for building permits.

At this meeting, the developer will be able to ask questions to representatives from the Planning, Economic Development, Inspections, Public Works, Fire, and Police departments. To schedule a One-Stop-Shop meeting, please contact the Planning Department at (231) 724-6702.
