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.

Share Your Ideas

Mind Mixer - share ideas in a virtual town hall

A Master Plan is a policy document that provides a foundation for City decision-making on issues related to land use, development, community facilities, parks and open space, and much more. The process to create a new Master Plan for Flint has just begun. Use the Imagine Flint Mind Mixer to suggest ideas, second ideas you support, and leave feedback. We know that the success of this planning effort will depend on engaging our community.

What is the Imagine Flint Mind Mixer?

The Imagine Flint Mind Mixer is a fun way to submit your great ideas, help others improve their great ideas, and ultimately determine the best ideas for your community.

Too often, great community ideas are lost because residents don't know how or don't feel comfortable getting involved. The Imagine Flint Mind Mixer empowers people to improve their community, all from the convenience of their own home.

Who can join the community and submit ideas?

Anyone! The Imagine Flint Mind Mixer encourages anyone and everyone to join and submit their great ideas. The best ideas often come from unexpected sources. If you have access to an internet connection (we assume you do if you are reading this), join now and submit your ideas.

How much does it cost?

Access to the Imagine Flint Mind Mixer is free for everyone.

Why should I participate?

Community activism and involvement are attributes of sustainable communities. The Imagine Flint Mind Mixer allows you to be involved from the comfort of your own home, via the internet. Hopefully, this site motivates residents to take an idea and implement the idea on their own. This kind of informal action is the goal of the application and often the easiest form of community action to implement.

I don't have any great ideas, but I would like to participate. Is this possible?

Absolutely! First and foremost, everybody has great ideas about how to improve the community they live in and is encouraged to submit. However, while you think of those great ideas, help others improve their ideas. You can do this by providing feedback or “seconding” an idea. 

How do I participate?
