Neighborhood Stabilization Plan (NSP)

Planning & Development Department (P&DD) and Detroit Land Bank Authority (DLBA) 

Public Notice: NSP 1 and 3

The City of Detroit (the City), through the Planning & Development Department (P&DD) is proposing an allowance in the Detroit Land Bank Authority (DLBA) Disposition Plan for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP).  The purpose of this notice is to provide an opportunity for public comment on the changes in the policies and procedures as they relate to the DLBA disposition plan. Specifically, the disposition changes allow for the DLBA to change the use of the disposed property so that they may be sold without meeting a NSP national objective. The Department has determined that this change in disposition strategy will best meet the needs of Detroit citizens. The following NSP funded properties may not end up meeting a NSP national objective and if not the City’s NSP will be reimbursed current, fair market value, less the value of any non-Federally funded acquisition or improvement costs:

4177 Audubon                   3890 Bishop                       1756 W. Boston                 115 Chicago            
571 E. Grand Blvd. 3471 Harvard 17570 Ohio 3930 Yorkshire

P&DD is soliciting public comment regarding the above-reflected changes.  The public comment period begins on July 21, 2014 and will continue through August 4, 2014. Comments can be sent to or mailed to:
