Farmington Vision Plan

About Us

The 2013 Farmington Vision Project created a Vision for reinvestment in the community of Farmington, Michigan for the next 20 years.  This vision plan creates direction for growth and development in the community.  During the planning process there were several opportunities for community participation through visioning meetings and community meetings for gathering feedback on what the public considered to be important in moving the City forward in re-development.

The first meeting for the Farmington Vision Project will be held Monday February, 18 2013 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at Farmington High School in the cafeteria. All are welcome to attend this kick-off meeting for the Farmington Vision Project. The focus of this meeting is on the visioning process.

Message from the City Manager

"The world is much different today than in 1998. Farmington is much more ethnically and racially diverse, the regional auto-reliant economy is much different than 1998, and there seems to be a broader social movement toward more pedestrian oriented amenities which positions Farmington favorably. The visioning process also provides an opportunity to discuss the relationship between service and infrastructure needs and expectations with the necessary financial resources." - Vince Pastue (former City Manager)

Message from the OHM Vice President of Planning

"We're big believers of this. The visioning process helps to define what is special about Farmington. . . and helps develop a sense of place that becomes almost a brand. What's happening today in economic development is following where people want to live. It's not just going out and finding the businesses. You've engaged the community, you've put a road map in place. Now when you make changes, everything is following along with that process." - James Houk (OHM Vice President of Planning)
