April 14, 2023 – Hey, Timberwolves: What does your ideal Midland look like? The City of Midland wants to hear from you!
On Tuesday, April 18, members from the Planning Department will visit Northwood University to collect public input for the Midland City Modern Master Plan process from students and faculty. Look for the City Modern logo and grab a seat at the table!
Input locations include:
- 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.: Walk-up input opportunity, Mid-Café, Jordan Hall
- 2 – 3 p.m.: Focus group discussion, Four Seasons Building
“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.
