"Plan Galesburg! Small Town, Big Heart" is a master plan being developed to help guide and plan for the future of Galesburg, Michigan. The process of creating a master plan offers the community the opportunity to create a vibrant new vision for the future and to formalize goals for growth, the built environment, sustainability and quality of life. We will strive to engage a diverse audience of elected leaders, community decision makers, residents, business owners, and developers to capture community dreams and aspirations for the future of Galesburg. A formal master planning process will help to confirm the community’s priority projects and develop the strategies and policies necessary make them reality.
