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.

City of Flint Selected as a PlacePlans Community

The City of Flint was awarded a technical assistance PlacePlans grant to aid in the design of the Grand Traverse Greenway Trail. The PlacePlans project is a collaboration between the Michigan Municipal League and Michigan State University that provides transformation placemaking projects. The development of the Greenway Trail is a top priority in the Transportation and Mobility section of the Imagine Flint Master Plan, while promoting alternative transportation modes that provide healthy lifestyle options for Flint residents. 

Flint is one of eight cities around the state to be awarded the grant. Generous matching support was provided by Diplomat Pharmacy, part of the S. Saginaw Task Force group that engages in programming and opportunity to create a more vibrant S.Saginaw corridor.
