  • clear and concise document;
  • extended the plan until the year 2040;
  • included a list of future DDA projects and provide estimates and prioritization to these projects;
  • adjusted the Development Area boundaries so that they would be the same as the Downtown District boundaries

City of Northville Non-motorized Plan


The purpose of the City of Northville Non-Motorized Plan is to articulate a vision for a walkable and bikable Northville. The Plan provides a framework for a city-wide non-motorized system and a clear direction for the implementation of sidewalks and bikeways throughout the City.  The plan is intended to guide pedestrian and bicycle facility planning, design, and construction for the City. It is implementation-oriented and is also intended to serve as a basis for future grant applications and funding requests.

City of Northville 2014 Master Plan Update


The City of Northville Master Plan provides long term guidance for land use decisions throughout the City, and articulates a vision and charts a blueprint for the City’s future development.  The Michigan Planning Enabling Act (P.A. 33 of 2008) requires local units of government who have adopted a Master Plan to review that plan every five years. The City of Northville’s most recent Master Plan update was completed in 2008, and adopted as an amendment to the 2000 Master Plan.  Therefore, Northville has initiated a process to update the Master Plan to meet the five year requirement.
