Open house set to share project progress


EATON — The City of Eaton will host an open house on Thursday, Nov. 17, to share some of the key information which has come out of its Elevate Eaton project so far.

“Elevate Eaton” is a project the City of Eaton took on to develop a modern comprehensive development plan for the entire community. The city is working with representatives of Local Gov Consultants LLC to complete the plan.

A comprehensive plan is a long-term guide for future development, redevelopment, and reinvestment which looks out 10 to 15 years in the future. The intent of the plan is to provide a vision on which future decisions can be based, including — but not limited to — capital improvements, investment and reinvestment opportunities and regulatory changes related to the physical, economic, and social development of the city.

The vision and recommendations of the plan will be driven by input from residents, property owners, and business owners who have had multiple opportunities to participate in the plan throughout the course of the project. The initial public meetings were held in July and October.

Following the initial public meetings and engagement opportunities, the city will be hosting an open house at the Eaton Municipal Building, 328 N. Maple Street, on Thursday, Nov.17, from 6- 8 p.m.

The purpose of the open house is to showcase some of the key recommendations which have come out of the process to date and will set the framework for a draft comprehensive plan. With the open house format, there will be no formal presentation.

City of Eaton residents are welcome to drop in at any time between 6-8 p.m. and stay as long as they would like. All information will be posted to the Elevate Eaton website following the meeting.
