Planning and Community Development

The Planning and Community Development Department facilitates the physical development of the City. Department staff work with the Planning Commission and other members of the community to do the following:

  • Create a vision for the future of the community through the City Master Plan
  • Turn that vision into reality through policy (including the Zoning Ordinance), programs, and other initiatives.

Mt. Pleasant is proud to be the first community in Prosperity Region 5 and the 31st in the state of Michigan to be certified as a Redevelopment Ready Community (RRC) by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. Certification indicates that a community has removed development barriers and streamlined processes to be more competitive and attractive to investors. Mt. Pleasant's adoption of a form-based zoning ordinance and the creation of building plans to incentivize the construciton of accessory dwelling units are examples of such efforts. Our work to improve our rules and procedures (such as through zoning text amendments) is always ongoing. We invite you to contact our staff with any suggestions that you may have.
