Alpena Community Planning Updates 2018

Communities in Alpena County are working together to survey the public and they’re interested in hearing from you. Partnering communities include the City and County of Alpena and the townships of Alpena, Green, Ossineke, and Wilson. They completed their joint Recreation Plan in January of 2019. All but Alpena Township are updating their Master Plans (Alpena Township’s was recently updated).

On this web page you will find information on the planning process, public meetings schedule, and draft chapters that are being reviewed for inclusion in new, updated Plans.  This will be undertaken primarily by each of the entities listed above with assistance from NEMCOG


A draft of the Alpena Community Master Plan is available for review for the purposes of a July 25, 2019 County Planning Commission meeting. This is a draft only, additional chapters and data is still being gathered. 

DRAFT Master Plan as of July 19, 2019
