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.

Grand Traverse Greenway Trail Community Visioning Session

Event date: 1/9/2014 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

This Imagine Flint demonstration project will facilitate the design of a 3-mile stretch of former rail line running from Grand Traverse and Kearsley Streets near Downtown Flint south to Hemphill Road. It will link with the Flint River and Flint River Trail while providing residents and community members the opportunity for new recreational opportunities and increased healthy lifestyle options. The community visioning session will allow residents the opportunity to envision what connection points, destination areas, and trail design would be ideal while forming the blueprint for design charrettes in March 2014.

The session will be on Thursday, January 9 from 5-7 pm at Word of Life Church. 420 W. Atherton Rd.
