City of Saginaw, Michigan

August 2, 2021 SAGINAW, MI – The City of Saginaw would like residents to
provide their input as we update the City’s Master Plan. Now is the chance for citizens to provide their opinion on land use in the city, parks and recreation, and changes they would like to see in their neighborhoods. The input we receive from our residents will be integrated with other information to create goals and action items to guide City plans in the years to come. To participate in the online survey, click here.

This Master Plan is a blueprint for the city’s future and serves as a roadmap to
guide the City’s decision-making. The plan is developed through comprehensive
surveys and studies of present conditions and opportunities for future growth within the City. The Master Plan becomes the basis for all development decisions and helps to establish regulations to control the extent and layout of development within the City. The last Master Plan for the City was adopted in 2011. You can view a copy of that plan by visiting or by clicking: 2011 City of Saginaw Master Plan.

Focus areas of the Master Plan include a Housing Plan, Transportation Plan,
Parking Study, Parks and Recreation Plan, and Land Use Considerations. Once these areas are completed, a final plan will be presented with a Public Hearing at a Planning Commission meeting and then final approval by the City Council.

Public Engagement is the key to a successful and beneficial plan. We need your input. To participate in the online survey, click here. The purpose of this survey is to engage the community, inform them about the Master Planning process and gain perspective on the needs, wants and desires of the citizens for their community.

The survey will be available on our website at until September 1, 2021. We value your opinion, and appreciate you spending a few minutes to give us feedback and information as we shape Saginaw’s future.
