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.


Sub Area Plans

The Imagine Flint Master Plan included creating 8 sub-area plans that focus on small areas throughout the city. These plans were meant to showcase a vision for key areas and assets around the city, and to focus on areas that are highly susceptible to change or a desire for change. All of the properties within each subarea shown below share some commonality and functionality that establish a relationship of the character within each district. During the planning process workships were held in each sub area to help guide planning with assistance from the public.

Below are the 8 subarea plans from throughout the city, and also the powerpoints created from the Subarea Workshops.
