June 16 – Orion Township Master Plan Open House

June 16 – Orion Township Master Plan Open House

Orion Township, MI – Orion Township’s Planning Commission is hosting an open house for the public to secure additional input from citizens for an update of the community’s Master Plan, which was last completed in 2017.

The open house is taking place on Wednesday, June 16, from 4-6:30 p.m., at the Orion Center, 1335 Joslyn Rd.The open house is but one of several opportunities for residents to provide input on the Orion Township Master Plan. This spring, an online survey was conducted, and a second open house will take place in the fall.

“Our Master Plan acts as a guide for future development decisions in our Township,” said Orion Township Supervisor Chris Barnett.

“The Planning Commission and Board of Trustees refer to it when evaluating proposals from developers and others.Our goal is to address the ever-growing needs of our residents while maintaining the charm of our community as much as possible.

”The open house will feature various stations, each highlighting a section of the Master Plan, including community demographics, land use, transportation (motorized and non-motorized), housing,and natural features.Each station will be staffed by a member of the Planning Commission, who will facilitate discussions with community members.

The meeting also will feature an exercise where community members will priority rank potential projects being considered by Orion Township’s leadership.

“We hope to see a large number of people at the open house,” said Planning Commission Chairman Scott Reynolds.“One of the best ways for us to secure the ideas and thoughts from our fellow residents is through events like this.We’ll closely review all of the feedback we receive, as we complete the update of the Master Plan during the next several months.”

Community members also will be able to provide feedback on the information shared in the open house stations online, via a link found at the Orion Township website, OrionTownship.org/MasterPlan.

This link will be active from June 16 through June 21.The regularly scheduled Planning Commission meeting on June 16 will take place a half hour after the close of the open house, starting at 7 p.m., featuring in-person public attendance.
