JOINT PLANNING COMMISSION

Colfax Township, Weldon Township and the Village of Thompsonville

The Community Joint Planning Commission (JPC) was formed in 2010 with the cooperation of Colfax Township, Weldon Township, and the Village of Thompsonville working together to improve the life of those who reside in the three municipalities.

The first JPC meeting was held on April 7, 2011. Bylaws were adopted and work soon began to seek a consultant to develop a Joint Master Plan. Following adoption of the Master Plan in October 2012 by the JPC and the three legislative bodies, another consultant was sought for a Joint Zoning Ordinance. Work on the ordinance began in February 2013 and it became effective May 15, 2015.

The JPC encourages everyone to attend its meetings. Community involvement is important and welcomed, whether it is serving on a committee, sharing ideas and suggestions for the area, or voicing an opinion during the public comment periods at a JPC meeting. The JPC is appointed by the two townships and Village. Vacancies may arise, and residents should contact their Board or Council to express their interest in a JPC appointment.
