Welcome to Imagine Flint, a site dedicated to engaging, updating and informing you on the implementation of the Master Plan.

Work continues on a variety of planning, policy and project implementation processes. The Flint Planning Commission approved a draft zoning code that aligns with the Imagine Flint future land use plan and the ordinance now heads to Flint City Council for adoption. The Flint Planning Commission also recently adopted an updated 5-year Capital Improvements Plan and has work across multiple City departments to develop Rebuild Flint the Right Way, an infrastructure guide for responding to the Flint Water Crisis that integrates the policies of the Imagine Flint plan. Additionally, the City launched the Imagine Flint Neighborhood Planning Initiative in 2016 that works with neighborhood groups to develop actionable plans with specific projects, ultimately producing a direction for neighborhood enhancement.

Project Summary: The City of Flint and the Flint Housing Commission (FHC) have partnered to address the historic challenges facing the Atherton East public housing development and the surrounding community. The Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant helped the City and FHC develop the South Flint Community Plan (SFCP). SFCP is a detailed document outlining projects to implement the Master Plan in a targeted area. The SFCP planning process was community-driven and the final plan details strategies for Housing, Neighborhood and People. The Flint Housing Commission selected Norstar Development to complete the relocation of Atherton East. Funding for this will come from numerous sources. An application was submitted to HUD on November 20, 2017 and awarded to the City and FHC on July 6, 2018 for a $30 Million Implementation Grant to relocate Atherton East and improve education, safety, and economic outcomes for South Flint residents. Phase I development of the new Atherton East, Clark Commons  was awarded Low Income Housing Tax Credits by the Michigan State Housing Development Authority and development will begin in early spring 2019.
