During the early part of 2010, the Hartland Township Planning Commission established a Village Plan Subcommittee to spearhead the creation of a development plan for what is commonly known as the Hartland Village. The focus area for the Village Plan was on the east and west sides of Avon St. from the intersection of Crouse Rd north to School St.
Anyone familiar with the Village knows that it is home to the Cromaine Library, Hartland Historical Museum, Hartland Music Hall, Chamber of Commerce and a mix of retail, office and residential uses. It also serves as one of the principle access points to several Hartland area schools. These landmarks help to create the foundation for the Village but the history and people make it come alive.
The Village Plan Subcommittee has developed a context sensitive design that takes into consideration the existing features and works toward enhancing the area without changing its inherent character. On March 30, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hartland Music Hall, the Village Subcommittee hosted a “village design” meeting to gather input from residents, business owners and community partners. By clicking on the link to the Plan, you can view a summary of the presentation and take a closer look at the conceptual plan.
