Alpena County Master Plan Update Completed
Fri, 04 Jun 2021 18:10:30 EDT

The Alpena County Planning Commission has wrapped up review and drafting the 2021 Alpena County Master Plan which was recently accepted by Alpena County Commissioners.

County Planning Commission members had originally developed the last master plan for the county in 2013. The state requires municipalities have master plans developed, and or updated every five years and the newest county version also saw Green, Ossineke, and Wilson townships join in and share costs of plan development.

A master plan basically serves as a "blueprint to the future", which is made up of various goals and desires representative of the community, a process that occurs every five years.

As before, the Northeast Michigan Council Of Governments helped compile a community survey, data was assembled, old data updated, and all repackaged, resulting in a total update. It's the second time the Alpena County Master Plan was revamped from an original 2006 version.

The plan has been submitted to area governmental units, the state, and the full board of commissioners for review and acceptance.

Eventually, it will be posted on the county website for public viewing.
