What should the City focus on during the Master Planning process?
The City of Midland is updating our Master Plan – but we need input from the people who live, work, worship, play, and learn here to make sure it represents the vision of our entire community for the next 30 years. That’s where you come in.
We’re calling this process “Midland City Modern”, and over the course of the master plan update, the public will be invited to take part by sharing their ideas, concerns, goals, and vision for the future of our community.
What is a master plan?
A master plan is one of the primary tools used by the City Council, the City Planning Commission, the Mayor, and City staff in making decisions that affect the future of the community.
Master plans serve as the City’s official policy guide and strategy for community improvements and development over the next decade and beyond. Master plans seek to maintain stabilization in cities while directing redevelopment and change within the city, increasing the city’s livability and neighborhoods, and transforming it into a more sustainable, innovative, accessible, attractive, and economically vibrant community.
