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.

Have there been plans to include comprehensive "complete street" infrastructure development downtown or in other areas of Flint within the Master Plan?

Thanks for the question Danny!

Currently, there have been no plans drafted to include “complete streets” within the Master Plan.  As the Advisory Groups begin to meet, the priorities and goals of residents will begin to be identified and recommendations made for inclusion within the Master Plan.  Complete streets and overall mobility will definitely be something studied in the Transportation & Mobility Advisory Group.  We encourage you or others to apply for these groups! The application can be found on the “home page”. Thanks again!
