Grand Traverse Commons
The Grand Traverse Commons (formerly the State Mental Hospital) straddles the boundary between Garfield Township and Traverse City. The Commons is very unique in nature, with a multitude of historic buildings slated for renovation and adaptive re-use into retail, office, residential, and light industrial spaces. A network of roads winds through the area, which is home to the Village at Grand Traverse Commons
redevelopment and includes large amounts of City and Township park land.
A revised Master Plan to guide the future use and development of the Commons area was adopted in 2010, and is available below.
The Grand Traverse Commons Zoning Ordinance
was adopted in May of 2017. Please visit the Joint Planning Commission
page for additional information.
