NEGAUNEE Mich. (WZMQ) – After being delayed by Covid, the Negaunee 2023-2028 Master Plan has been adopted by the Planning Commission.
The Master Plan was released Tuesday morning, and is now available for public view. The plan was in review for 63 days as a requirement by the state of Michigan before becoming adopted.
Negaunee had previously sent to it’s residents various surveys, and held public meetings to receive feedback from their residents. Over 300 residents sent back responses, helping the city to finalize their plan.
Resident are still encouraged to reach out to the Zoning and Planning Office, to give more feedback as time goes by, and offer thoughts and ideas for the city.
“If they do have any other thoughts and ideas, please contact me,” says David Nelson, the administrator of Negaunee Zoning and Planning. “We can discuss their thoughts an ideas because the city itself doesn’t function without the residents and business owners, all doing their part to make the city of Negaunee a better place.”
The Master Plan includes infrastructure, land use, business development, downtown development, the ability to age in place, housing, and will also give Negaunee the ability to become a Redevelopment Ready Community.
This plan will be reassessed annually, as Negaunee hit’s objectives, identifies new goals within the five year period, or receives public feedback.
Hard copies of the plan are located at the Negaunee Public Library, the Negaunee Senior Center, the Negaunee Planning and Zoning Office, and on the City of Negaunee website.
