HAZEL PARK'S AMENDED MASTER PLAN


rsz rsz masterplannewspicThe City of Hazel Park is preparing an amended Master Plan for 2018.   Numerous study sessions will be conducted over the course of the year.

In 2016, the Congress for New Urbanism visited the City of Hazel Park and conducted meetings with the public about improvements to the John R Corridor.  It was an extremely successful endeavor.  The final report authored by the CNU experts can be found here.

The Plan's major focuses shall include:

 
  • Improved and Diverse Corridors;
  • The attraction of new and exciting businesses;
  • A livable community that attract millennials and young families to the City; and
  • Leveraging the assets of the City, including the Promise Zone and the City's amazing community spirit.
In addition, the City of Hazel Park is working to make its Master Plan into an interactive website that is linked to the City's new website that will allow citizens, developers, business owners and others the ability to easily access and understand the Master Plan's vision for the City.                   

COLLABORATION WITH WAYNE STATE DEPARTMENT OF URBAN STUDIES AND PLANNING (DUSP)

Beginning May 5th, 2014, Wayne State's DUSP program will begin working on their Capstone Project, which, among other things, will focus on corridor plans for John R and Nine Mile.  The Capstone Project is a culmination of the Master's Program in Urban Planning.  The class of 15 will prepare data, maps and present recommendations to the City in a presentation and written report at the beginning of August.  The work of these students will greatly assist in the completion of Hazel Park's Master Plan.  We are excited to continue a longstanding relationship with Wayne State's DUSP program and look forward to their involvement in our Master Plan process.
