The City of Wixom has undergone a number of significant positive changes over the past decade. This is due to a commitment to providing quality public services, supporting a vision for a Village Center Area, and continued diversification of the local tax base. Looking into the future, the City sought to develop a vision for the community that was based on public input and support.
Vision 2025 is an update to the city’s strategic vision, Wixom 2010, which was developed in 1993. Vision 2025 was prepared simultaneously to revisions to the Parks and Recreation Plan and set the stage for the Master Plan update. This Vision 2025 document is based upon public input responding to information presented on community sustainability at a series of visioning workshops that were held at the Community Center in the fall of 2011. For those that could not attend the workshops, the information and questions were available on the City’s website.
The questions cover four main topic areas, including Placemaking, Economic Development, Parks and Recreation, and City Services. They represent a targeted refinement of categories used in the Wixom 2010 Vision and relate to current opportunities and challenges facing the City. Each topic area has a listing of primary goals along with a series of recommended strategies to guide elected and appointed city officials as they make decisions affecting the community.
