Comprehensive Plan Update

Comprehensive Plan 

Per the Planning Enabling Act (PA 33 of 2008) communities are required to review their master plans and make updates as necessary. The City of Lathrup Village updated the master plan in 2014.  It is now time to revisit the master plan to ensure the community's vision, and goals for achieving that vision, are still relevant. In addition to updating the master plan, the city has chosen to update and consolidate the Parks and Recreation Plan and Downtown Development Plan into a single Comprehensive Master Plan. Doing so recognizes the inter-connectedness between of each document, and aims to ensure consistency during the implementation phases. 

IMG_9918The city had a Comprehensive Master Plan Kick -Off joint meeting on August 5th with City Council, LV DDA Board of Directors, and Planning Commission.  This was the first of many public engagement opportunities that will be scheduled.  As the project moves forward, you will be able to find all 2019 Comprehensive Plan information and documents on this page. If you have any questions, please contact Susie Stec, Manager - Community & Economic Development at or at 248.557.2600 ext. 223.

Public Input
As the city is updating our Master Plan, Recreation Plan and Downtown Plan, which will last about 8-9 months, we will work with our project consultant, Giffels Webster, to better understand what residents and business owners like about the city and what could be improved. While the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many aspects of daily life, it hasn't stopped the planning process!

We invite you to visit our Lathrup Village Virtual Open House which will run from May 11 – 25.  This online platform is designed to share the existing conditions while still having engaging ways to gather public input! The comments received during this virtual open house will be used to further refine the Comprehensive Plan to reflect the community’s vision. Visit to participate in the Lathrup Village Virtual Open House! Please be sure to share this invitation with your friends, family, and neighbors.
