The City of Detroit has engaged a consultant team to create a comprehensive neighborhood, landscape, and green stormwater infrastructure strategy for northwest Detroit along the Grand River corridor. The scope of work will incorporate five categories: Research and Community Engagement/Communications; Landscape Design and Green Stormwater Infrastructure; Streetscape and Mobility; Development: Economic, Housing, Historic Preservation; and Zoning. In addition to strategic planning in those areas, the consultant team will also assist the City with two projects intended to help address flooding issues in the area, the Rouge River Greenway and Rogell Golf Course. Please review the Request for Proposals.

Questions? Please contact Michele Flournoy at flournoym@detroitmi.gov.


Save the date! We will be holding a series of community meetings over the coming months to hear feedback and share progress on the planning process. The next meeting will be an open house held Tuesday, April 18th at the Pure Word Missionary Baptist Church, located at 20011 Grand River. City of Detroit staff and members of the design team will be on site and available all day from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm so you can come when it is most convenient for you. More information about the upcoming meeting is available here.

The final meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 23. Check back here for more details about the location, time, and agenda. We look forward to seeing you at these meetings. Please share with your neighbors!

Past Meetings:


The consultant team from Design Workshop created a survey to inform the initial development of ideas within the planning scope for Grand River/Northwest Detroit. It was originally presented at the February 15 community meeting (results available above), and has been posted online to give those unable to attend the meeting the opportunity to provide input. Responses are anonymous and results will not be individually analyzed. Please note that the survey is intended primarily for residents of the planning area, as well as business owners and employees that work in the area, or anyone who is in some way directly impacted by the planning efforts in Northwest Detroit.

You can access the survey here. Thank you for your participation!
