Lake Michigan Development Project





Lorrie L. Pearson, Barbara Hinsman and Rebecca Vander Kelen of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning conducted a study with the Lake Michigan Federation on the development policies of counties and communities surrounding Lake Michigan. They collected various planning documents for their research and have now donated them to the City Planning and Landscape Architecture Library. The documents are part of the CPLA’s vertical file collection.

Planning materials in the collection:

  • Comprehensive Plans
  • Master Plans
  • Zoning Ordinances
  • Subdivision Ordinances
  • Environmental Ordinances
  • Watershed Plans

Please note: not every county and city in the collection contains all of the planning items listed above.
