Almira Township Master Plan Update



This webpage contains all of the most recent information, resources, and documentation for the Almira Township Master Plan Development Process.  A community Master Plan is a policy document that guides land-use decisions and zoning ordinance regulation standards.  The document will delve into all aspects of the community from transportation and economic development to rural protection and agriculture.

The development of the AlmiraTownship Master Plan is occurring over a twelve to fourteen-month period from the summer of 2021 until the early fall of 2022.  The planning process will incorporate public input from surveys, direct contact with residents, and communication at public input sessions to be scheduled during the process timeframe.

The Almira Township Planning Commission is the appointed body that is charged with guiding the Master Plan Process and development of the document.  Planning commission meetings are open to the public and residents and visitors are encouraged to attend and participate.  Information on Planning Commission meetings and agendas can be found at the following website:

Please check back with this website as updates are made regularly.
