Public comment period opens for Community Master Plan Amendment

The Marquette City Planning Commission has drafted amendments to the Community Master Plan
(CMP), and the public is invited to provide comments regarding the draft CMP Amendment between
Oct. 15 and Nov. 25 to the Planning Commission.
The amendments to the Community Master Plan includes two major components:

  1. A new Appendix J, with narrative and recommendations on several issues, including
    Demographics, Community Facilities and Services, Transportation (including an onstreet
    Bicycle Route Network Plan), Housing, Land Use and Zoning, the Land
    Development Code Project, Energy Production and Distribution, Environment, and
    Community Food Systems.
  2. Revised Future Land Use and Proposed Zoning maps. The Future Land Use Map is
    the basis for Planning Commission decision-making on re-zoning requests, and for the
    zoning districts found in the Proposed Zoning map. There are many changes to zoning
    districts proposed in this amendment to the CMP, and those changes have been
    incorporated into a draft Land Development Code (LDC) – that when implemented
    will institute a blanket rezoning of multiple properties in the city. There will be more
    information forthcoming next week regarding scheduled public open house and other
    public comment opportunities regarding the LDC project.

A copy of the draft CMP Amendment can be found in the Community Development office at 1100
Wright St., or online: https://www.marquettemi.gov/departments/community-development/planning.
Written comments regarding the CMP Amendment may be submitted to the Community
Development Department office or by e-mail to the City Planner at dstensaas@marquettemi.org.
Comments by telephone may be made to the City Planner at 225-8103. Also, the Planning
Commission will meet during the public comment period on Oct. 16, Nov. 13, and Nov. 20 and
comments regarding the CMP Amendment may be made at those meetings.
