City Working On Master Plan Updates, Says Public Input Is Vital
Posted by Durand Now at 6:06pm 7/16/19
City of Durand
The City of Durand is updating its land use master plan and needs your help to guide the City’s future development.
Land use plans look 15 to 20 years into the future to help describe the kind of community we want to build. These plans serve as a guide to city officials and developers on land use decisions and capital projects. The Master Plan is an important part of deciding where to locate new development and how to best plan for growth.
To make the plan reflect Durand, we need resident input. What should we protect, what needs to be improved, and what kind of community do you want Durand to be?
Public input is vital to a successful master plan. Without it, these documents are doomed to sit on a shelf. The Master Plan Steering Committee is asking for your help set the goals that will guide the development of the City over the next two decades. You can participate in two ways. Complete our currently available Community Survey and attend our Envision Durand event, this Thursday evening, July 18th, 6pm at City Hall.
Durand’s Master Plan was last updated in 2005. This update is made possible through a grant from the Michigan Redevelopment Ready Communities Program. The new plan will be ready for adoption in early 2020.
The survey will be available through Friday August 9, 2019, and it should take about five minutes to complete. Your survey answers are confidential and will help to develop the plan that guide the development of City for the next generation. Hard copies are also available at City Hall.
