Marquette looking for help in updating city master plan

Area residents have an opportunity to help shape the future of the city of Marquette, and it will only take a couple of minutes of their time.

City officials are asking for assistance in putting together an updated master plan, a document required by law that will help chart future city commissions, boards and panels in making important policy decisions.

A 15-question survey, available at www.marquettemasterplan.org, asks the community questions regarding what topics they feel the city needs to address, including growth and development trends, housing, transportation, economic and environmental development, tourism, land use and zoning.

“The main criteria for credible survey results is to receive input from a significant percent of residents and others that work, shop or recreate in the city of Marquette. The larger our sample size, the more certainty we’ll have that we received input from a diverse spectrum of people, and that the results can be trusted and qualified to support the recommendations, goals and objectives that are eventually approved in the final product,” Marquette City Planner David Stensaas said.

The survey is open until Wednesday and takes roughly 10-15 minutes to complete, a Mining Journal story on the matter detailed.

We encourage readers to take a few minutes and complete the survey.

It sounds like a good investment of time in something worthwhile.
