Welcome to the Village of Shoreham website. Nestled between the Village of Stevensville and the City of Saint Joseph, just 25 miles north of the Indiana border on I-94, the area is a popular tourist attraction between June and September of each year. Many call Shoreham Village the best-kept secret of Southwest Michigan. One of our Council Trustees calls us the Pearl of Southwest Michigan. We happen to agree!

IMPORTANT NOTICES TO ALL!
The Village Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at the Village Hall to seek public comment on the proposed new Zoning Ordinance for the Village. The proposed new ordinance is a complete rewrite of the current one (adopted in 1991), incorporating 21st Century language and structure, while maintaining the protections in place that contribute to the Village’s unique characteristics.
A new zoning map is being finalized and will be integral to the new ordinance. The map will include the proposed rezoning of three parcels (Parcel #’s: 11-43-0010-0069-01-0, 11-43-0010-0069-02-0 and 11-43-0010-0070-00-0, owned by Eagle Technologies, in front of their building on South Lakeshore Drive – from their current “Open Space” designation to Residential. The “Open Space” designation has been found by courts to be inappropriate for non-governmental owned property and cannot be so maintained.

VARIANCE REQUEST TO BE HEARD BY BOARD OF APPEALS
At 6:30 P.M. on April 25, 2017 (prior to the Public Hearing on Zoning as listed above), the Board of Appeals will consider a variance request for the property located at 2501 Lake Vista Drive. The request is for the purpose of allowing a homeowner a variance of 20 feet rear set-back on their property (zoning requires 30 feet) for the construction of an addition to their home. Homeowners within 300 feet have each been issued a letter to inform them of this request. The public is invited.
