Northeast Corner Neighborhood Master Plan Nearing Completion

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

The Planning Commission has scheduled a public hearing for Wednesday, June 15th at 7:00 p.m. to review proposed amendments to the Northeast Corner Neighborhood Master Plan.  The meeting will be held in the Council Chamber at City Hall.

Changes to the master plan remain the same as proposed at the previous public hearing held on March 16th, with one addition.  The Rochester Soccer Club (RSC), located south of Dutton Road and east of Bald Mountain Road, has requested that the Planning Commission amend the City’s land use designation for their property from “single family residential” to “non-residential transitional.”  The request would facilitate an anticipated eastern expansion of their existing soccer facility.  It is noted that this designation would also allow clean industrial development on the site if RSC were to decide to vacate the property in the future.

A computer generated model has been created to help visualize what development could conceptually look like on the former Kensington Community Church site and RSC property in the future.  Click on the short video below to view the model.

Below is the draft plan for the Northeast Corner Neighborhood.  The map was created as the result of public input obtained at meetings held on January 19th, February 16th, and March 16th and subsequent discussions.  The original land use plan for the area was adopted in 2001.

The Northeast Corner Neighborhood is the area bounded to the north by Dutton Road, south by Walton Boulevard, west by M-24, and east by the City of Rochester Hills border
