Welcome to Blueprint Mount Pleasant! This site will be your source for information about the Village of Mount Pleasant zoning ordinance update project. The zoning update is being undertaken to help implement village land use policies and provide a better guide for future growth and change. The updated ordinance will emphasize Mount Pleasant’s unique character and help ensure that development and redevelopment meets the village’s expectations for quality place-making. The new ordinance will also be reorganized, richly illustrated and easy to use.
