Anyone interested in the master planning process is invited to stop by to ask questions, fill out surveys and questionnaires, use studio computers to go on-line and interact with the project website, view and discuss planning concepts and materials, and get involved with the Master Plan.
The Imagine Flint Project Studio is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Members of the project team are available to answer your questions and get your feedback.
The Imagine Flint Community Vision and Goals Workshop will take place on Saturday, March 9, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. This meeting will be held at the Mott Community College Ballenger Field House. This engaging workshop will utilize real time polling and small group discussion to gain large group consensus. Every attendee will have an opportunity to have their voice heard. This workshop is a critical component of the Master Plan process and will enable residents to achieve serious dialogue and by the end of the meeting, establish a shared vision for the Master Plan including preliminary guiding principles that will create a framework for the Master Plan.
Remember, Imagine Flint is your opportunity to help shape the future of your city! If you can only attend one Imagine Flint event, THIS IS IT!
8 months of attending community meetings and gathering data has resulted in this interim existing conditions report of the City of Flint. This report summarizes the existing conditions, and identifies issues and opportunities that the Master Plan should address. This document is not intended to be adopted or to serve as a final and exhaustive inventory of all things in Flint, but rather to be used to establish a baseline of understanding and a starter of discussion.

A Master Plan is a policy document that provides a foundation for City decision-making on issues related to land use, development, community facilities, parks and open space, and much more. The process to create a new Master Plan for Flint has just begun. Use the Imagine Flint Mind Mixer to suggest ideas, second ideas you support, and leave feedback. We know that the success of this planning effort will depend on engaging our community.
The Imagine Flint Mind Mixer is a fun way to submit your great ideas, help others improve their great ideas, and ultimately determine the best ideas for your community.
Too often, great community ideas are lost because residents don't know how or don't feel comfortable getting involved. The Imagine Flint Mind Mixer empowers people to improve their community, all from the convenience of their own home.
Anyone! The Imagine Flint Mind Mixer encourages anyone and everyone to join and submit their great ideas. The best ideas often come from unexpected sources. If you have access to an internet connection (we assume you do if you are reading this), join now and submit your ideas.
Access to the Imagine Flint Mind Mixer is free for everyone.
Community activism and involvement are attributes of sustainable communities. The Imagine Flint Mind Mixer allows you to be involved from the comfort of your own home, via the internet. Hopefully, this site motivates residents to take an idea and implement the idea on their own. This kind of informal action is the goal of the application and often the easiest form of community action to implement.
Absolutely! First and foremost, everybody has great ideas about how to improve the community they live in and is encouraged to submit. However, while you think of those great ideas, help others improve their ideas. You can do this by providing feedback or “seconding” an idea.
