In Clam Lake Twp v Dep’t of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs/State Boundary Comm’n, 500 Mich 362; 902 NW2d 293 (2017), the firm represented Michigan Realtors® on the issue of the validity of agreements entered into between local units of government for the conditional transfer of real property for economic development (425 Agreements) and, more specifically, the impact of zoning provisions on their validity.  The Court of Appeals had invalidated a 425 Agreement as being against public policy by dictating zoning for property transferred in the agreement.  In a unanimous opinion, the Supreme Court reversed, finding that Michigan’s Act 425 authorizes local units of government such as townships to provide for zoning ordinances in their conditional land transfer agreements.
