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.

Working to Improve

Draft CIP

As the Imagine Flint Master Plan process continues to move forward towards implementation, community involvement remains a vital to staff’s success. As an advocate for public input, the Planning Department is no stranger to forums and workshops that gather concerned and committed citizens and allow for candid conversations and dialogue to occur. The most recent topic open for discussion is the City’s Capital Improvement Plan. The Draft CIP was released in September 2014 and three public input sessions were held in early December where much constructive input was shared.

City Planning Staff would like to extend its sincerest thanks and appreciation to the 100+ residents who came and offered opinions and ideas for future spending on capital improvements in Flint. During each session a presentation was given to highlight the importance of a multi-year plan to address improvements needed City-wide. Examples were given that outlined some main projects and areas of priority within the plan. Among the most urgent projects discussed were those pertaining to infrastructure improvements, including blight demolition and investment in the City’s aging sewer and water infrastructure. Those in attendance were provided with a timeline and update on current and proposed projects. Questions, comments and concerns were encouraged throughout the presentation and each person received a sheet to record feedback. The potential adoption of this 5-year plan, will mark the City’s first ever combined and comprehensive planning document that addresses City owned facilities and infrastructure.

The Flint Planning Commission met on Tuesday, January 13 to vote on the 5-Year plan, with unanimous approval. The plan will be voted on by the City Council later in the month for formal adoption. If you have questions on the Capital Improvement Plan, please contact Planning Staff at masterplaninfo@cityofflint.com
