Information for our municipal clients and friends in government

We can help you with your municipal cannabis ordinance administration. We stay up to date on State laws and many local ordinances, and in some cases develop and/or administer those local ordinances, too. We also provide more conventional planning and zoning services.

Please know that ethics and integrity are paramount for Proxima Collective. If we are engaged in a consulting role for your municipality, we will not take on any new private clients that are specifically seeking land use approval in that community. In the case that our existing clients seek land use approval in your municipality, we will limit our role in order to avoid potential liability and ethical concerns. We hope you understand this and respect this approach.

Our Principals have previously worked, or currently consult, in government positions for more than fifteen years. We understand the challenges that come with administration of a range of ordinances, with a range of motivations and associated pressures. We also understand specialized government programs, and have developed application processes and administrative workflows for several land uses, including cannabis.

We focus our expertise (and research & analysis) within Michigan, but have worked with clients in other States as well. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are outside of Michigan. We like to learn.


As your consultant, we are invested in your success. Proxima stays abreast of important information about the local and statewide cannabis market and regulatory framework, so you don't have to.
