Capital Improvement Plan

Executive Summary

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.


Steering Committee

The role of the Master Plan Steering Committee during the master planning process was to channel community resources to ensure the broadest community ownership of the Master Plan. With an adopted Master Plan in place, the Steering Committee continues to provide guidance to the Planning Commission during the implementation of the Master Plan. It is composed of twenty-one members that include representatives of community residents, the business community, neighborhood and faith-based organizations, Master Plan partners and stakeholders, at least one member of the City Council and two members of the Planning Commission and a student/youth representative. Each member was selected by a four person panel consisting of 2 co-chairs, a member of City Council, and the Mayor. All nine City of Flint wards are represented and the members reflect the social makeup of the City of Flint in its membership.

The responsibilities of the members are as follows:

- Hold meetings, while maintaining successful attendance (Two absence limit)        

- Provide recommendations to the Planning Commission on implementation-related planning areas such as the Capital Improvement Plan, Sub-Area Plans, Zoning Code, Executive summary, etc.

- Help plan the annual community engagement event to report on progress and receive input on the implementation of the Master Plan.

- Receive and review reports from Task Groups related to implementation of seven chapters of the Master Plan.

- Participate in other community outreach efforts related to implementation of the Master Plan.

After beginning their monthly meetings in 2011, the Master Plan Steering Committee held their final meeting in February of 2016.
