On May 26, 2020, the Hazel Park City Council approved the distribution of its draft Master Plan, in accordance with Michigan’s Planning Enabling Act:
This draft Master Plan is the result of a survey conducted in February of 2019, a week of public meetings conducted in March of 2019 and approximately a year of meetings dedicated to this Master Plan. We had hundreds of people respond to the survey and over a hundred people attend the public engagement meetings. I want to thank the Planning Commission and public for their hard, diligent work during the draft process. Under the law, there is a mandatory 63-day review period of the draft plan. Please be advised that the Planning Commission would then hold the required Public Hearing in September to receive and review additional public comments. The Planning Commission may then make a recommendation to the City Council for adoption of the final Master Plan. Please send any questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For additional information on the Master Plan, see below.

COLLABORATION WITH WAYNE STATE DEPARTMENT OF URBAN STUDIES AND PLANNING (DUSP)
In 2014, Wayne State's Urban Planning Program undertook a Capstone Project for Hazel Park. The study and report focused 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 prepared data, maps and presented recommendations to the City. The work of these students will greatly assist in the completion of Hazel Park's Master Plan.
