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. In order to obtain RRC certification, the city of Mt. Pleasant received a comprehensive assessment that measured current community and economic development practices compared to RRC best practice standards. The program evaluates and certifies communities which integrate transparency, predictability and efficiency into economic development practices. Certification indicates that a community has removed development barriers and streamlined processes to be more competitive and attractive to investors. In Mt. Pleasant, best practices for development, public participation, and communication are our practice. Click here to learn more about the RRC program.
