September 14, 2017: Meridian Township, Shaping Meridian
Meridian Township is finalizing the 2017 Master Plan, which represents the vision and goals for the future of the township. Shaping the Avenue is working with the township to develop a Form-Based Code (FBC) to implement the community vision for Grand River Avenue and Downtown Okemos.
On September 14, 2017, Meridian Township held an open house at the Township Municipal Building from 4-7 p.m. to introduce attendees to what Form-Based Codes (FBC) are and how they can help to implement a community vision, and preview ideas for a new FBC along Grand River Avenue and Downtown Okemos.
