2019 Comprehensive Plan Update

2019 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 sstec@lathrupvillage.org 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. To accomplish this, Giffels Webster has created an online platform called PictureThis™. As you are out and about in the city, look for things that strike you as particularly attractive, welcoming and unique, or unappealing, bland and tired-looking. Images can be submitted to this online platform from any internet browser using your phone, tablet, or computer. Use the links in the platform to share with others on social media or send in an email. Follow the link below to get started! 


The city is also conducted a resident survey as part of the Comprehensive Plan process. Please take about 10 minutes to participate in the online survey that will explore how and where residents spend their shopping and dining dollars so we can assess what opportunities should be explored for the future as part of the planning process.

While online opportunities for public input are important, it's also very important to engage in face-to-face  conversations. The city will be hosting a Comprehensive Plan Open House on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 from 4 - 6 pm in the Community Room at City Hall. This is an opportunity for residents, businesses, and other stakeholders to provide input to be included in the plan. 

Data, research, & project documents
Throughout the process we will be sharing a variety of documents related to the Comprehensive Plan.
