A Master Plan is a long-term guide for how a community wants to evolve in the future. It includes an assessment of trends and current conditions, an overall vision of the future, broad recommendations that can be undertaken by the community, and the action steps to achieve that vision. It is a flexible document that is intended to be interpreted as conditions change. It can address land use, housing, the environment, economic development and connectivity, for example. The last effort with any similarity to a master plan was the land use plan completed by the Village in 1997.
The Village of Gates Mills is beginning a Comprehensive (Master) Plan endeavor in 2022.
