2020 Master Plan Documents & Updates


    A primary goal of the City of Harbor Springs elected and appointed officials is to incorporate the values and priorities of City residents in the administration of City government. The Master Plan is an important tool toward that end. It is the document that guides all future land use decisions for the next twenty years, or more. To that end, the City has created a series of surveys that gauges the community’s thoughts on several Master Plan goals. Your input is greatly appreciated.

    Survey #1: Natural Character of Harbor Springs

    Survey #2: Quaint and Vibrant Harbor Springs

    Survey #3: New Housing Development

    Survey #4: Neighborhoods in Harbor Springs

    Survey #5: Recreation Facilities

    Survey #6: Recreation Opportunities

    Survey #7: Regional Coordination (Parks)

    Survey #8: Economic Development

    Survey #9: Waterfront Use and Harbor Development
