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.

         

MASTER PLAN ADOPTED!

It’s official! The City of Flint has its first comprehensive, long-range plan in over 50 years. The unanimous votes by both the City of Flint Planning Commission and the Flint City Council are a result of over 2 years’ worth of work from many individuals, organizations, and leadership throughout the City. The Imagine Flint planning process ultimately connected with a diverse group of over 5,000 Flint residents and community stakeholders.

The Imagine Flint Master Plan will now serve as a blueprint for City operations, future development within Flint, and a tool to stabilize the community as a whole.
