In April 2019, hundreds of community members participated in formal and informal activities hosted by the City of Mt. Pleasant and McKenna & Associates. During this four-day event participants shared their vision for Mt. Pleasant in the year 2050. Hundreds of additional stakeholders also participated by completing online surveys, which further refined the vision.
“The bold vision established by this plan reflects the valuable input the community provided on Mt. Pleasant’s strengths and opportunities,” said Mt. Pleasant City Planner Jacob Kain. “The hundreds of individuals who took part in this process set the direction and momentum which has ultimately shaped the draft plan. We are excited to take the next step in the planning process by introducing the draft plan to the community.”
The draft plan establishes goals and objectives organized into the following themes: Sustainable Land Use, Connected Mobility Systems, Focused Redevelopment, Exceptional Parks and Public Spaces, and Innovative Services and Aspirations.
The formal adoption of the plan is expected to occur in 2020.
