Flint City Council Approves Circulation of Master Plan for Comment

courtesy Imagine Flint

In a special meeting of the Flint City Council on Monday, Flint’s Chief Planner Megan Hunter explained the city’s first master plan in more than 50 years.

According to MLive, the draft addresses such things as the establishing of a blight court, increasing the number of police officers and firefighters, and making sure the city’s housing stock mirrors the needs of residents.

Seventh Ward Councilman Dale Weighill wanted to know what sort of resources would be needed to implement the plan saying “my experience is that the city government capacity to implement plans is extremely limited. From my perspective, the plan is to the moon.”

According to Hunter, there are some short term projects that will be implemented in the next few years such as a revised zoning code.

Copies of the nearly 200 page plan for the public were not available at the meeting, but the Council voted 7-0 to allow its circulation. Copies of the proposed plan can be found at the Flint Planning Commission Office, the Flint City Clerk’s Office, the Flint Public Library and Mayor Dayne Walling’s office. You can also click here to download the file to Dropbox.

Comments will be heard until October 15th. Hunter said people can write, email or call her office with comments about the plan.
