City Master Plan Update
Check out our 2019 Master Plan!
In 2018 and early 2019, the City along with citizens and community stake holders worked to update the City's Master Plan. The new Master Plan is complete and has been adopted by City Council at their meeting on 3/11/2019. We encourage you to download the new plan and check it out. Links to current documents can be found on this page.
In 2019 we will continue to work on housing stock for the City and increase walkability. We will also begin work on updating the City's zoning ordinance. We welcome your input and need your ideas to solve challenges and improve the community.
A public meeting was held on 4/25/19 at the Newaygo Elementary School to discuss projects happening around the City and also seek input relating to the development of the old Vera Wilsie school site. Here is Agenda and Info regarding the meeting.
Additional meetings will be held in 2019 to further gather citizen input. A good source for notices is the IamNewaygo Facebook page.
We need your help to shape the future of Newaygo.

Vera Wilsie Site Development Ideas - 3/12/2019
In October 2017, walkability expert Jeff Speck evaluated the City of Newaygo on how to make the community safer and more attractive for pedestrians while addressing traffic circulation and parking challenges.
Click Jeff Speck Walkability Assessment link below for a report of his findings.
See also the book by Jeff Speck "Walkable City" that formed the basis for proposed improvements.
City Council has supported the walkability concepts. See link to resolution below.
Conceptual drawings to aid walkability and increase parking for M37, Quarterline, Justice, and Wood streets have been created. See links below. Please note that these concepts continue to evolve as input is received from MDOT, City/County officials, and citizens.
The City of Newaygo has been exploring the feasibility of install pedestrian bridges, one over the Muskegon River connecting from Wood St to Henning Park, and one over Brooks Creek near Park St.
Plans are linked here and below showing locations and a sample design.
