Public Invited to Virtual 2050 Master Plan Events

The City of Mt. Pleasant will hold a series of virtual events regarding the proposed 2050 Master Plan.

Beginning Monday, August 17th through Monday, August 31st, an interactive web platform will be available at enabling the public to review and provide feedback on elements of the proposed plan.

On Thursday, August 20th, the City and project consultant McKenna Associates, will host a virtual open house at 7 p.m. This event will offer the public an opportunity to learn more about the plan, provide feedback, and ask questions.

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. This feedback became the basis for the proposed Master Plan. 

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 before the Parks and Recreation Commission, Planning Commission, and City Commission will take place in the near future with formal adoption of the plan to occur before the end of 2020.
