City Master Plan Update

In 2018, the City along with citizens and community stake holders will be working to update the City's Master Plan and Zoning Ordinance. We welcome your input and need your ideas to solve challenges and improve the community. Links to current documents can be found below.

A Master Plan input session is scheduled for April 17, 6pm - 8pm at the Stream (1 State Rd, Newaygo - 2nd floor). Please come and learn what is happening and give your input.

Last fall, we held visioning sessions and a workshop related to walkability. This spring, we are focusing on housing, neighborhoods, and redevelopment. Join city staff, officials, and our consultant team for a Public Visioning Session on Housing and Neighborhoods April 17, 6-8pm at The Stream (1 State Rd, Newaygo – 2nd Floor). Hear about the master plan update process, the latest in housing trends, and join the discussion on the future of Newaygo’s neighborhoods. We need your help to shape a vision for the future of Newaygo.

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.
