Draft 5-Year Blight Elimination Framework Released

A guiding principle of the Master Plan is addressing the Quality of Life within Flint neighborhoods for Flint residents. Blight Elimination is critical to changing Flint's image, and it must eliminate Blight and Urban Decay and enact an aggressive City-Wide anti-blight campaign. 

This campaign has begun with the completion of a Five-Year Comprehensive Blight Elimination Framework draft.  The goal of the Framework is to stabilize Flint's population by eliminating blight in neighborhoods and improving the quality of life for residents while focusing on seven key activities for blight elimination.  These include: demolition, code enforcement, waste removal, mowing, boarding, vacant lot reuse, and building rehabilitation and redevelopment.

As the five-year cost of removing blight in Flint is estimated at roughly $112 million, the Framework proposes collaborative blight elimination between residents, local government, institutions, community groups, and businesses and developers. View the Framework.
