Master Plan Update Project

The City of Dexter is updating its Master Plan, in accordance with the requirements of the Planning Enabling Act (Public Act 33 of 2008), as amended.  The Master Plan is a long-range statement of the general goals and policies, which aim to unify development of the City, complement the goals of adjacent communities, and strike a balance of orderly change, in a deliberate and controlled manner.  It is the basis upon which zoning and land use decisions are made.
