The City of Monroe has been working on a major update of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. Over the last year, a committee made up of residents, business owners, township and school representatives, developers, and council members have been meeting to discuss future infrastructure needs and zoning requirements.

A citizen survey was done to determine what Monroe’s residents like and dislike about the city, and what improvements they would like to see. Poggemeyer Design Group has been working with the committee to incorporate these ideas into the city’s master plan.

In addition to population projections, the plan looks at needs for parks, roads, and development growth.

A public meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, March 26 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the main hallway at the highschool. The meeting will have an open house format and include displays and maps for the public to peruse. Committee members will be on hand to discuss the plans and take comments and suggestions.

After receiving these public comments, the committee will begin finalizing the master plan and present it to City Council for approval.
