Master Plan Revision

The planning commission is beginning work on a revision of the City of Houghton Master Plan.

1,922 Quality of Life surveys were sent to residents in early September.  As of November 1, 2022, 623 were returned for a response rate of 32 percent.  The results will be compiled and presented to the commission by our intern, Stephanie Franco, at its February 28, 2023 meeting.

Open House Events were held in the City Center Council Chambers and were facilitated by Pat Coleman of North of 45.  They were held on  Tuesday, October 11, 2022, and Tuesday, November 1, 2022.  A total of 66 residents and business owners attended the events.  They talked one-on-one with commission members telling them what they would like Houghton to be in the future.
