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.

Draft Master Plan Chapter Reformatting

During the 63-day public comment period, planning staff has been presenting to numerous community groups, neighborhoods, and local organizations to discuss the draft master plan and its contents. These meetings have allowed residents and fellow community stakeholders the opportunity to digest and review Flint's first comprehensive plan in over 50 years as well as ask questions about how the plan will affect the city moving forward. 

Based on initial feedback and concerns from these meetings, the underlying objection to the plan was its readability and format. Many thought the true content and vision of Imagine Flint was getting lost. Planning staff listened and responded. After some discussion, brainstorming, and input from the Steering Committee, planning staff and consultants developed a new format. Staff hopes this new layout will allow the reader the opportunity to truly Imagine Flint's future and stresses the importance of Flint's 6 guiding principles. Take a look at the new format and provide your feedback at www.imagineflint.com
