NEW EMMET COUNTY MASTER PLAN AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW
At its May 21 regular monthly meeting, the Emmet County Board of Commissioners approved the draft version of a new Emmet County Master Plan for the years 2020-2024. Commissioners requested the Master Plan, as well as the public comments from a community survey conducted in mid-2019, be available to the public for review. County officials encourage the public to review the Master Plan, read through the comments provided by local residents to our survey, and check out a detailed community vulnerability assessment that was conducted in 2019 by the Land Information Access Association for the purpose of providing information aimed at improving climate resilience by reducing human and community vulnerabilities. Additional comments may be emailed to Tammy Doernenburg, Planning and Zoning Director.
