M-150 Corridor Study - Visual Preference Survey Report
The Department of Planning and Development hosted two separate public open houses earlier this year in City Hall to solicit public opinions through a Visual Preference Survey on what the anticipated development and potential redevelopment should look like along M-150 Highway. The results of the survey were tabulated and shared with the participants.
The Visual Preference Survey was developed in response to a City Council goal, to plan for the development of large land parcels and key undeveloped areas of the city. The M-150 Highway Corridor was chosen by the City Council as a top priority based on the new highway construction currently in progress. The results of the survey will be used to establish design standards that will ultimately be placed on all properties within the developing Corridor.
The next step will be to prepare a “Request for Qualifications” (RFQ) seeking planning consulting firms interested in partnering with the City to provide development enhancement standards within this corridor. The selected firm will be charged with preparing a comprehensive design overlay district, establishing a land use intensity plan and preparing a set of design standards based on these survey results.
