Initiate the Project
GCMPC staff determined what content should be included in the new plan. A general timeline was created to provide structure in how that information would be collected and compiled into one cohesive document.
GCMPC staff reached out to key stakeholders from various agencies and organizations across Genesee County to schedule interviews. Over 100 stakeholders were asked 8 questions to gain their feedback related to community development, transportation, and the environment. This critical input will be used in developing strategies to enhance Genesee County in the future.
