2015 City of Novi Master Plan for Land Use Update

Through the Michigan Planning Enabling Act each community in Michigan is generally required to create a Master Plan for the purpose of guiding development and planning efforts in that community.  Once adopted, communities should review the plan for updates at least once every five years.  As a planning document, the Master Plan may project planning efforts up to 20 years into the future.

The City of Novi last updated the Master Plan for Land Use in 2010. Since the adoption of the 2010 Plan, development activity in Novi has continued at a brisk pace, including significant new residential subdivisions, high tech research and office developments in Novi’s Office Service and Technology Parks, and a numerous reinvestments in the existing regional and local shopping centers in Novi.

It is now time to review and update the plan again.  The City would like to take a collaborative approach to the plan update, combining the experience of its Planning Commissioners and City Council members, gaining from the local knowledge of its residents and businesses, and using the skills of its professional planning staff.

The purpose of the plan update is to document and study current land use trends, and to present a comprehensive set of recommendations for the direction of land use and current development throughout the community. The City of Novi encourages the public to remain involved in this update process. We thank you for your continued interest in our City and in our future.

For questions or comments, please email Barbara McBeth, Deputy Director of Community Development.

We will be posting updates on public participation and Comprehensive plan update process on this website. Keep Checking!
