The City of Jonesville is working on an update to it's Master Plan - a document that guides the future development of the community. The Planning Commission and City Council approved the scope of the update in late 2017. The City is being assisting in the update by the Region 2 Planning Commission and MMK Consulting.
This page will be periodically updated with information related to the plan update.
||In early 2018, the Planning Commission issued a Community Survey for the purpose of understanding the opinions, wants, and needs of people who live, work, own property, and/or own a business in Jonesville. The survey asked for opinions about growth and development, City and commercial services, and community facilities. Over 300 people responded to the survey.
In early March, approximately 40 people attended a meeting at the Jonesville First Presbyterian Church for the Community Survey Reveal. Survey results were shared and discussed and attendees were given the opportunity to prioritize the next steps.
Redevelopment Ready Communities
The Redevelopment Ready Communities (RRC) program is sponsored by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and is available to communities across the state. It is designed to promote effective redevelopment strategies through a set of best practices. In order to engage in the program, interested communities must complete training, a self-evaluation of current practices, and pass a resolution expressing intent to participate in RRC.
The City of Jonesville intends to incorporate RRC best practices in the update of the Master Plan. This includes reviewing current procedures to assure that they are effective in promoting development and redevelopment in the City. In addition, the technical assistance provided by the program will increase opportunities to market redevelopment sites and properties in the City. The City, including several members of the Planning Commission and City Council completed MEDC training in 2017. A copy of the resolution of intent to participate is included below.
