May 5, 2023 – Midland residents have an opportunity to help set the City of Midland’s future priorities for the next 30 years – and they can do it in a new ‘choose-your-own-adventure” style survey opportunity.
In the final Midland City Modern Master Plan survey, residents are invited to view interactive copies of the City’s future land use and future transportation maps and share input on how land in the city should be used, the types of development that should be encouraged or discouraged in each area, suggestions or comments on future motorized and non-motorized transportation infrastructure, and more. Input from this survey will help shape the future footprint of the community for zoning, development, and transportation.
To participate, visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/futuremaps. Residents who do not have internet access or cannot complete the survey online can view physical maps and provide annotations in person at City Hall, 333 W. Ellsworth Street. Call the Planning Department at 989-837-3374 for accommodations.
Once completed, the results of the survey will be shared with the Midland Planning Commission, City staff, and the general public and used in the development of the City’s next Master Plan.
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 seek to maintain stabilization 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.
