Livingston County Master Plan
Our Livingston County Master Plan, adopted in 2018, highlights a wide variety of current planning trends and provides best practices examples from local municipalities, our region, our State, and the country. The Plan is intended to be used by local cities, villages, and townships during the formation or revision of their own plans, maps, and ordinances.
2018 Master Plan
The Critical Issues identified in this plan were deemed by County Planning to be the planning issues most relevant to Livingston County; relevant in a broad sense to the whole county or large portions of the county. Therefore, it is County Planning’s hope that these critical issues will be considered by our local Livingston County communities.
The Best Practices in this plan then provide an easy way for Livingston County communities to implement requirements in their zoning ordinances that will address these critical issues.
Finally, the Resource sections in each chapter give local communities the website links and source documentation that will make it easy to replicate this best practice in their own plans and ordinances.
This Plan has been developed to connect us as a group of twenty communities, so that the positive impacts of good planning and zoning practices are multiplied by being replicated throughout a majority of our Livingston County communities.
