Master Plan


Adopted 2015 Master Plan
The City’s Master Plan was last adopted in 2015. To access the adopted master plan, please click here: 2015 Ecorse Master Plan.
Master planning in Michigan is regulated by the 2008 Michigan Planning Enabling Act (MPEA). The MPEA requires that, at least every 5 years after adoption of a master plan, the Planning Commission must review the master plan and determine whether to amend the master plan or adopt a new master plan. The master plan must address land use and infrastructure issues and may project 20 years or more into the future. The master plan must include maps, plats, charts, and descriptions showing the Planning Commission's recommendations for the physical development of Ecorse into the future.
In the Master Plan, you can find information on the following:

  1. Goals and objectives for the future of Ecorse
  2. Key opportunities and challenges in Ecorse
  3. Community demographics
  4. Land uses (residential, parkland, industrial, etc.)
  5. Community facilities
  6. Transportation
