In spring 2007, the opportunity to review the Master Plan for Land Use was initiated when the Master Plan and Zoning Committee discussed opening the master plan to address some particular areas of interest or to complete open issues. After some discussion over the next couple of meetings, the Committee recommended to the Planning Commission that it formally start the process by reviewing identified, specific areas. The Committee prepared a resolution that was approved by the Planning Commission as a whole on June 13, 2007:
Whereas, the Master Plan and Zoning Committee of the City of Novi Planning Commission has reviewed the status of the City of Novi Master Plan for Land Use, 2004 regarding Special Planning Areas No. 1 and No. 2, the Downtown West Area, and the Southwest Quadrant of the City; and
Whereas, the Committee found that the Master Plan does not detail the general uses for the following areas: Special Planning Areas No. 1 and No. 2, and the Downtown West Area; and
Whereas, the Southwest Quadrant of the City is also being reviewed by the Committee and Commission for potential Plan amendments.
Now, therefore, the City of Novi Planning Commission hereby announces the start of the Master Plan amendment review process and it authorizes its Chairperson to notify the City Council and all entities that are required to receive notice by the State Municipal Planning Act.
