What is a Master Plan?

A Master Plan is a long-range vision for the future of the community. It provides a framework for making big-picture decisions and can promote and strengthen valued community assets as well as encourage new partnerships and opportunities. In Michigan, master plans are to be reviewed by the Planning Commission every 5 years. While major updates may not be necessary, it is important that communities review their plans to ensure they are relevant to the current and projected needs and wants of a community, and coordinate with other communities, county and regional plans and reports. Farmington Hills current Master Plan was adopted in 2009. The City is in the process of updating that plan.
