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.


Planning Commission Approval Process

Currently the Planning Commission is working on reviewing the draft zoning code article by article. When they have finished the review and their recommendations have been included they will vote on its approval. Once approved by the planning commission the code will then be presented to the City Council for their recommendations and adoption. 

The Master Plan Steering Committee has wrapped up its duties after 4.5 years of working to help develop and implement the Imagine Flint Master Plan. The Steering Committee spent the last year discussing the draft zoning code and has submitted broad policy recommendations to staff who then compiled the recommendations and staff responses to each recommendation into a summary document. The document was passed on to the Planning Commission for their consideration during the review process and you can download a copy of the document here

Planning Commission meetings are open to the public and occur on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month. Below you can find a summary of the discussion regarding the draft code during each meeting.
