The Master Plan is a long-range document and policy guide designed to help communities create a vision of what they want to look like in the future. Master Plans help guide communities in their decision-making on land use, development, and preservation.
The planning process will include reviewing past plans, collecting and analyzing existing data, reviewing site conditions, seeking public input, and establishing an updated vision. The vision will identify goals, objectives, and strategies for future land use, recreation, economic development, and environmental preservation. The planning process will include participation from the Planning Commission, Downtown Development Authority, Township Board, business and property owners, and, most importantly, citizens of this great community. The Planning Commission will take the lead in creating the Comprehensive Plan document and associated maps.
