Master Plan and Ordinance Update City of Mason

Mason, MI

The City of Mason is looking for a qualified team to prepare the five-year update to its Master Plan in accordance with the Michigan Planning Enabling Act, 2008 PA 33, the Michigan Zoning Enabling Act, 110 of 2006 and the City of Mason Ordinance Chapters 50 and 94. Last updated in 2014, the City's Master Plan is a 20-year roadmap for how the City of Mason wishes to evolve over time, and the basis for future budget, policy and ordinance decisions. The Master Plan is comprised of professional technical studies, graphics, maps, analysis and recommendations for ensuring that land uses, public facilities and infrastructure investments are well coordinated in a manner that supports the public's health, safety and social/economic/environmental welfare consistent with the community's vision.

We need the Master Plan to answer the following questions: 1. What are the most effective ways Mason can continue to evolve while preserving our neighborhood/small town charm? (Placekeeping vs Placemaking) 2. What infrastructure projects, policy decisions, and community engagement efforts will foster a more innovative, welcoming, and forward-thinking environment in Mason? 3. Where and how do we guide future development in Mason for the best utilization of space at the lowest cost to taxpayers? 4. How do we create a development review process that is consistent, efficient, cost-effective, and honors the community's vision?

Parallel to the completion of the Master Plan update, the selected team will be responsible for working with staff to prepare updates to City ordinances, future land use and zoning maps necessary to implement the master plan. We need to address ordinances that are inconsistent with the community vision, and are outdated or unenforceable due to conflicts with other laws (Federal, State), or Supreme Court rulings.

To manage implementation of the master plan, application materials and guidance documents related to development will be prepared that meet the needs of our community, developers and business owners and achieve certification eligibility through the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Redevelopment Ready Communities Certification Program. The selected firm will be responsible for reviewing prior planning documents, the City ordinance, current development application procedures, and relevant materials as necessary.
