TUSCOLA’S PLAN FOR THE FUTURE
The City of Tuscola invites and encourages all residents to attend in reviewing and finalizing the vision for our town. The City partnered with MSA Professional Services and together have created an updated Comprehensive Plan for our City. This plan covers all aspects of our City from transportation and housing to economic development and agricultural resources.
This Plan is the result of community input and direction. Through the Steering Committee meetings, community survey and community events, the public process formed many goals for the City of Tuscola.
