Help steer Boyne City’s future Master Plan; input session 7 p.m. on Oct. 23





Boyne City residents, business owners, students and other interested parties are encouraged to attend a public forum concerning the city’s future.
This meeting—a joint venture of Boyne City’s planning, and parks and recreation commissions—is  intended to refine Boyne City’s community goals in conjunction with ongoing efforts to update the city’s master plan.
Public input will be used to help identify local needs, desires and refine the community goals to guide the future of the city.
The Boyne City Planning Commission has compiled preliminary goals and a list of “Boyne is” statements based on the review of many previously prepared plans and goal-setting sessions.
The idea is to continue the dialogue with “Here’s what we have heard you say … now, please help identify what has changed or what else needs to be addressed to make Boyne the best it can be.”
The Boyne City Planning Commission is in the process of updating the community master plan, which is a policy document designed to guide future growth and development in the community.    Additionally, the Boyne City Parks and Recreation Commission is updating the community’s recreation plan, which is used in part to pursue grants for recreation related projects.
The forum is planned for 7 p.m. on Thursday Oct. 23, at Boyne City Hall’s auditorium, located at 319 North Lake St. in Boyne City.
The preliminary compiled goals, and the “Boyne is” statements are available for review at City Hall or  at Contact Boyne City Planning Director Scott McPherson at (231) 582-0343 or for more information.
