LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE KICK-OFF MEETING SCHEDULED

The City of Marquette Community Development Department, in conjunction with the Planning
Commission and planning & zoning consultant McKenna Associates of Michigan, will host an openhouse
style kick-off meeting for the project of creating a Land Development Code for the City. The
open house will begin one hour prior to the regularly-scheduled Planning Commission meeting:
5 p.m., Tuesday, June 20
City Hall Commission Chambers
300 W. Baraga Ave., Marquette
The City of Marquette, through the Land Development Code (LDC) project, will modernize its landuse
codes, and create a user-friendly document that updates and combines various ordinance/code
elements. The intended impacts of this project are to update zoning districts and standards, to incorporate
new standards for increased environmental protection and the mitigation of the negative impacts of
urbanization and growth, and to reduce the complexity of the current land-use ordinances and reduce the
number of variance cases caused by outdated standards. The envisioned Code document will be
designed to assist in implementing the City’s vision to become a premier sustainable community with a
strong sense of place that provides unique opportunities for living, learning and business.
