[ARCHIVED] Share Master Plan Input at the Civic Arena December 14

December 2, 2022 – Share ideas for the future of Midland, take part in the City’s Master Plan update, and support the Midland High School hockey team all in one place this month.

On Wednesday, December 14 from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m., members from the Planning Department will be posted in the concourse of the Midland Civic Arena, 405 Fast Ice Drive, to collect public input for the Midland City Modern Master Plan process. Midland High takes on Bay City Western High School in ice hockey at the Civic Arena beginning at 7 p.m.

Residents are invited to visit before the game or take a break from the first period of action to talk about their vision for the future of Midland over the next 30 years. This is a perfect opportunity for anyone who lives, works, shops, or visits in the Bay City Road corridor to be a part of the Master Plan update! There will be no formal presentations, set agendas, or materials to review: just an opportunity to talk with staff about the future of Midland. Look for the City Modern logo and start a conversation! 

Similar events are being planned at other establishments in the coming months. More information on these events will be announced when details are available.

“The key to a successful, inclusive Master Plan that is representative of the entire community’s future vision is public input,” said Director of Planning and Community Development Jacob Kain. “By visiting popular community gathering spaces such as local watering holes, coffee shops, and social amenities, we can meet people where they are and have meaningful two-way conversations.”

The City’s Master Plan serves as the City’s official policy guide and strategy for community improvements and development over the next 30 years. Master plans help maintain a consistent vision in cities while directing redevelopment and change, increasing livability and neighborhoods, and transforming it into a more sustainable, innovative, accessible, attractive, and economically vibrant community. The City’s last comprehensive master planning process took place in 2005 – 2006.
