The City of Flint Imagine Flint team is hard at work this summer. The June 7th Community Conversation about Community Education workshop with Flint Community Schools was a huge success. A big thank you to the 300 residents and community members who participated. Great discussions were had and important conclusions and themes were drawn. Click here to see the final report of the workshop.
As part of our continuing efforts to implement the Imagine Flint Master Plan, the City of Flint, in partnership with the Genesee County Land Bank, is beginning its roll-out of the City’s newly developed 5-year strategic Blight Elimination Framework. Addressing blight and improving neighborhood quality in the City of Flint was identified as a top priority of the Imagine Flint Master Plan, and the Beyond Blight: 5-year Comprehensive Blight Elimination Framework will be used to promote collaborative, complementary, and effective blight elimination by directing blight removal activities. What does ‘blight’ actually mean and what does it look like in the city of Flint? From abandoned properties, decayed buildings, to vacant lots, blight is tangible. Because of the magnitude of these effects, the Beyond Blight Framework calls for collaborative and coordinated blight remediation work as the most direct and probable route to eliminating blight city-wide in the next 5-years. People seeking progress are needed as blight elimination is a crucial step toward improving quality of life in Flint’s neighborhoods and for Flint’s residents. The City of Flint Department of Planning and Development would like to invite all residents and community members to this summer’s series of blight elimination workshops. The workshops will explain the Blight Elimination Framework and address the steps to be taken by residents and community members.
