Public invited to learn more about the City of Mt. Pleasant’s Proposed 2050 Master Plan

The City will hold a series of public open houses regarding the proposed 2050 Master Plan. The proposed plan can be viewed online at

On Wednesday, March 25, project consultant McKenna Associates will hold an open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Rotunda of the University Center on the campus of Central Michigan University.

On Thursday, April 23, McKenna Associates will hold two open houses. One will occur at Cops and Donuts – Central Precinct, 1327 S. Mission Street, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The other will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Mt. Pleasant’s City Hall, 320 W. Broadway Street. 

Hundreds of community members participated in formal and informal activities during a four-day event in April 2019, hosted by the City and McKenna Associates. Participants shared their vision for Mt. Pleasant in the year 2050. In addition, hundreds of additional stakeholders participated in online surveys to further refine and validate the vision.

“The proposed plan establishes a clear vision for the City’s future,” said Mt. Pleasant City Planner Jacob Kain. “We are excited for the community to review the plan and learn more about how it will guide the community over the next several decades.”

The plan is organized around specific goals and objectives including Sustainable Land Use, Connected Mobility Systems, Focused Redevelopment, Exceptional Parks and Public Spaces, and Innovative Services and Aspirations.

A series of public hearings will follow later this year leading to formal adoption of the plan.
