Dickson Township Master Plan

planning for dickson township's future

Dickson Township will coordinate with Community Planners from Networks Northwest to create a Master Plan document. This planning effort, which will be conducted through the Dickson Township Planning Commission, will involve various "pop-up events", as well as a community open house. The Master Plan, sometimes referred to as the Comprehensive Plan, is a municipal document that describes the various intricacies of the community: its past, present and future. The Master Plan is a community input-driven guidebook that helps local leaders and members of the public to accomplish goals and objectives for a better future. For Michigan communities utilizing zoning to regulate its land use, the Master Plan is required under the Michigan Planning Enabling Act (MPEA) (Act 33 of 2008) and is reviewed every 5 years.

There are multiple opportunities to participate in the Dickson Township planning process:

  • Attend Planning Commission meetings and special Master Planning meetings (check Township Hall and this webpage for meeting dates)
  • See the planning team at 2 pop-up events - Oct. 3rd at Kaleva Norman Dickson Schools from 4-8pm AND October 29th at the local Trunk-or-Treat event (Dickson Township Park on Coates Hwy, 2-4pm)
  • Public input session
