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.

Community Workshops – November 15, November 28 & December 13

Help us create a Master Plan for Flint

Three community workshops will be held, representing the first of several face-to-face community outreach events scheduled throughout the planning process. The purpose of these first workshops is to allow residents to tell us what they think, before we begin making plans and recommendations. The workshops will: (a) review the purpose of the Master Plan, the planning process to be undertaken, and the schedule for the study; and (b) secure local views on problems, issues and potentials within the City and its neighborhoods.

Community Workshops are scheduled at three different locations throughout the City.  All workshops will begin at 7:00 pm.  

Thursday, Nov. 15
Mt.Olive Missionary Baptist Church
1601 Fay St.

Wednesday, Nov. 28
Greater Galilee Baptist Church
4418 Industrial Avenue

Thursday, Dec. 13
