We are pleased to notify you that the draft City of Ishpeming Master Plan is available for public review. The draft 2022 Master Plan is the result of more than three years of work by Planning staff, the City of Ishpeming Planning Commission, and CUPPAD.

The 2022 Master Plan is the first comprehensive update to the City’s master plan since 2010, and its objective is to help local leaders and community members answer the following question: What do we want the City of Ishpeming to be like in the future? As such, the 2022 Master Plan will guide public policy in Ishpeming the next five years.

After holding a regular meeting on October 4, 2022, the City of Ishpeming Planning Commission gave preliminary approval of the 2022 Master Plan. The City of Ishpeming Council voted to release the Draft Master Plan for public review at their October 5, 2022 meeting. A 63-day public review period has now begun, per the requirements of the Michigan Planning Enabling Act.

The Ishpeming Planning Commission will review all comments received, hold a public hearing at the close of the review period on December 8, 2022, and vote on final approval of the 2022 Master Plan thereafter. The Ishpeming Planning Commission welcomes public feedback. Please submit your written questions and comments to zoning@ishpemingcity.org or to the following mailing address:

City of Ishpeming Master Plan Adopted March 2010

This master plan is the result of extensive data collection and analysis providing a method to address issues throughout the City of Ishpeming. Master Plans are governed by the Michigan Planning Enabling Act (PA 33 of 2008). Community input has played a critical role in the formation of this plan to ensure that it represents the needs of the residents. The initial sections of the plan present an analysis of the current conditions in the City, including demographic statistics, economic climate, and the existing land use. The remaining chapters of the plan are designed around key issues highlighted by residents and community officials. Recommendations for Ishpeming officials addressing key issues are outlined in detail.

By analyzing the current condition of the area and factoring in desired outcomes, the plan provides a clear view and direction toward achieving the proposed goals. A future land use chapter will present the “preferred future” of how the City of Ishpeming would like to grow and will include recommendations on how development will be carried out. The future land use discussion will also include a zoning plan, which will guide the implementation of a zoning ordinance revision for the City.

To summarize, this plan is intended for use as a guide by local officials when considering matters related to development and land use. Planning is a process that requires ongoing review and analysis. This plan will remain a work-in-progress and will require timely and thoughtful revision to be of the greatest benefit.
