Capital Improvement Plan

Executive Summary

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.

         

Planning Commission

Under state law PA 33, the Flint Planning Commission is charged with the creation of the Master Plan and recommendation of the plan for adoption by Flint City Council. Throughout the Master Planning process, the Planning Commission encouraged the development of a Master Plan that is founded on broad public participation and legitimately reflects the priorities of the community based on meaningful engagement. Heeding the need for a truly public process, the Planning Commission initiated the formation of the Master Plan Steering Committee, a 21-member group that includes two representatives from the Planning Commission as well as the City Council. By including official City representation on the Steering Committee, the Master Plan reflects the goals and aspirations of the larger Flint community as well as City officials, which ensured a smooth transition through the public hearing and adoption process and into the implementation phase.
