rosa parks clairmount forum

The City of Detroit has engaged a consultant team to create a comprehensive neighborhood revitalization and landscape stewardship planning strategy for Detroit’s Rosa Parks/Clairmount corridor. The scope of work will incorporate six, neighborhood, and landscape planning categories: Neighborhood identification, streetscape & connectivity, open space, housing, development and the integration with the Herman Kiefer development.

In partnership with neighborhood residents and community organizations, the city has identified several focus areas within the project boundary for potential opportunities. Each area within the planning scope boundary has its own unique set of challenges and opportunities.
The planning strategy will highlight and target the following:

  • innovative and sustainable uses for vacant lots and structures
  • renovation and future development of homes and businesses
  • streetscape improvements such as lighting and signage
  • neighborhood identity and branding based on cultural and historic assets
  • safe passage for bicycle and pedestrian mobility
  • bridging and connectivity over the Lodge Freeway

The Planning and Development Department has a city office hours available at the Walker Williams Studio (2nd Floor) by appointment on Fridays from 3-5pm. If you'd like to meet with planning staff concerning the Rosa Parks Clairmount Neighborhood Framework & Landscape Stewardship Plan, please send an email to Daniel Rieden at riedenda@detroitmi.gov with the subject line: RPC Appointment
