Master Plan Review

The preparation of this Master Plan represents many months of study, analysis, and review, by the Republic Township Planning Commission. Existing Conditions and circumstances that affect the Township are discussed in chapters 2 through 8. Chapters 9 and 10 use background information as a basis for developing goals and strategies as well as plans for the future.

A Master Plan is a land use and infrastructure plan that sets forth local goals, objectives, and policies for community growth and development over the next 10 years. The Master Plan serves as the basis for the local zoning ordinance, subdivision regulations and other local land use regulations as well as ensuring that capital improvements are consistent with the community goals and policies expressed in the Master Plan. With this in mind, the Master Plan represents a statement about what the community is, what the residents of the Township value, and what they hope the community will become.
