THE MASTER PLAN IS A GUIDING DOCUMENT and the culmination of over a year of dedicated work by the community. Elected and appointed officials of Genoa Township, Township staff, Township consultants, and the Livingston County Planning Department were all involved in its creation. Citizen participation in public workshops also provided an important source of input during the process.

The finalized plan was adopted by the Genoa Township Planning Commission on November 25, 2013; the Genoa Township Board of Trustees adopted it shortly thereafter on December 16, 2013.
