After more than a year and a half of dedicated work, the Macomb Township Planning Department has received a prestigious award for the “Cultivate Macomb!” master plan.

The Michigan Planning Association awarded Macomb Township and the planning team the Outstanding Implementation Award as part of the 2022 Planning Excellence Awards.

The original concept for Town Center, developed in 2001 was a plan that would grow the community around Township Hall. But little had been done to make those plans a reality.

Starting a new Master Plan nearly from scratch, the planning team formulated a concept to make the 20-year-old Town Center idea into a reality. They took a unique approach while creating the plan by bringing the public into the process. The approach included a survey and several outreach events with developers, landowners and residents, this helped guide and mold the plan into something the residents would desire. 

The plan includes park areas, conservation areas, and trails that will connect to a Township trail system. The most exciting part of their plan is being able to create a central point for the community and a sense of place that Macomb Township is lacking.
