March 10, 2021 – Residents are invited to play a vital part in shaping the future vision of the City of Midland by participating in an online survey to begin the Midland City Modern master planning process.

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.  

In this initial survey, respondents are asked to share their vision for the future of Midland, their favorite aspects of the community, and their top challenges and concerns to address in the new Master Plan. Topics to consider include but are not limited to land use and development; housing and neighborhoods; livability and quality of life; transportation and mobility; environmental features, open space, and parks; infrastructure and community facilities; economic development; business districts; public safety, health, and welfare; arts and culture; and more.

The survey can be accessed via the City’s website at and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Responses should be submitted by Friday, March 19 at 5 p.m.

Once completed, the results of the survey will be shared with the Midland Planning Commission, City staff, and the general public. Input received will be used to drive the master planning process and guide the development of future surveys and other public input opportunities in the upcoming months.

Residents who do not have internet access or cannot complete the survey online may submit feedback and suggestions to Director of Planning & Community Development Grant Murschel at 989-837-33874 or
