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.

The Imagine Flint Open Houses will be held during the week of July 27th – August 2nd at various times and locations to allow for broad public input on a proposed land use plan and draft Master Plan goals and objectives. 

The Open Houses will allow the public to learn about the draft components of the Master Plan, ask questions to planning staff, and provide input as the Master Plan is being drafted.  The goal is to develop a draft Master Plan by August 13th so that it may be formally circulated for the 63-day comment and review period before the public hearing is held in October.

Land Use Workshop Results

Nearly 350 concerned residents and stakeholders attended the Imagine Flint Land Use Workshop series.

Participants were provided with descriptions of 11 Place Types representing a range of development types, character, and intensity. Working in groups of 7 to 10, participants were given a collection of stickers and markers (See Workshop Guide below) and asked to create maps highlighting where each place type should occur as Flint evolves over the next 20 years.

The results of the Land Use Workshops have been compiled, mapped, and presented to the Steering Committee for comment.  Click on the images below to view the Composite Map, Areas for Further Discussion Map, and related summary text.
