For three years, the Mason Planning Commission has been updating its 2004 Master Plan. On Tuesday, Feb. 11, city commissioners passed the resolution and sent it to City Council for consideration. The intent of Mason’s updated Master Plan is to create a vision and set policy for growth. Looking to direct new commercial, residential and industrial development, the plan hopes to guarantee appropriate land use, bring awareness to the city’s agricultural practices, reduce tax burdens on citizens and preserve its historical and small-town character.
