City to Host Community Open House for the Master Plan and Moblity Action Plan Projects

The City of Traverse City invites all people who live, work, learn, and play in Traverse City to attend a community open house on October 26 from 3-7 p.m. at the Hagerty Center, 715 E. Front Street, to inform both the master plan and mobility plan projects currently underway. 

The open house builds on the recently completed online survey of nearly 2,000 community members and stakeholder listening sessions. The open house will include a summary of these results, along with a series of activities for attendees to engage with regarding mobility opportunities, future priorities, and challenges facing Traverse City. Refreshments and coloring activities for kids will be provided.

Open house attendees are welcome to arrive anytime between 3-7 p.m. on the 26th and may choose to spend as little or as much time at the event as they wish, interacting with each station at their own pace.

The project team is also providing an online survey shortly after the event, with similar content as provided at the open house, to reach folks who cannot attend in-person. Some activities might not translate perfectly from event to online survey, so folks are encouraged to drop by the open house if their schedule allows.

City staff, members of the master plan and mobility plan leadership teams, and members of the consultant teams will be on hand at the open house to greet attendees, answer questions, and seek input. “We are looking forward to hosting all members of our community at this combined open house,” says Shawn Winter, City Planning Director. “This is a great opportunity to make sure your opinion informs two critical projects affecting the future of Traverse City. Your participation is the most important aspect of this process.”

The community is encouraged to sign up for project updates (including personal invitations to engagement events like this open house) at the project website at
