Violet Township Embarks on a Comprehensive Planning Process
The public is invited to help create “Vision for Violet” – a roadmap for the community’s future. In April 2021, Violet Township began creating a long-term plan for the future of the unincorporated parts of the township.
The township’s current comprehensive plan was adopted in 2005, and has limited relevance to address present and emerging opportunities, challenges and regional trends.
The comprehensive plan aims to proactively prepare for the future. It will explore various issues including land use, economic development, infrastructure, housing and more. The final document, slated for completion within the calendar year, will identify long-term goals and recommend action steps to implement those objectives.
The development of a Vision for Violet is a collaborative process led by township staff and guided by a citizen steering committee. Violet Township has engaged ms consultants, inc. (ms) to lead the community engagement portion of the plan.
Members of the general public invested in the future of Violet Township are encouraged to participate in the planning process. The ms planning team will attend community events throughout the summer to gather feedback on how the public envisions the future of Violet Township.
If you cannot catch the planning team at an event or are otherwise unable to engage with the process in person, you can still actively participate online. Visit www.VisionforViolet.com to take the community survey, participate in other activities and learn more about the comprehensive planning process.
