We plan for Grand Rapids' future. Our Master Plan spans over 20 years, but we reassess and update it regularly. We adopted the current Master Plan in 2002. (The previous Master Plan was adopted in 1963.) The Master Plan focuses on the following issues on which city policy can have a direct impact:
- Land use
We've amended the plan with community input on a new vision for Grand Rapids. This includes topics such as schools, public safety, job training and other quality of life aspects. Check out the plan below.
