EL Planning Commission & Master Plan Public Hearing

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 7:00pm

A public hearing has been set for the possible adoption of the City of East Lansing’s new Master Plan – a broad-based policy document for the physical, economic and social development of a city as it relates to land use.

The public hearing will take place at the East Lansing Planning Commission’s meeting on Wednesday, May 23 at 7 p.m. in Courtroom 2 of the East Lansing 54B District Court. At this meeting, community members can share feedback and the Planning Commission will consider adoption of the plan.

The public hearing was preceded by a 63-day review process, which included four public input open houses as well as review by surrounding communities, the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, MSU, the Ingham County Road Commission, utility companies and state transportation entities. The feedback from the review process was compiled and forward to the Planning Commission to determine any additional changes to the draft plan. The plan and a list of the changes that were made to the plan can be viewed at www.cityofeastlansing.com/MasterPlan.
