As of July 17th, 2020 we have started to engage with residents at an acceptable distance. The Planning Department along with our consultants and volunteers distributed planning information, a resident survey, and a coloring activity among other public info and resources at each residents doorstep. We hope to gather resident feedback about Delray that will help us identify local concerns, issues, and help determine feasible solutions with residents. Further public engagement will be announced in the near future as we continue to determine the conditions of COVID-19. Planning and Development will keep residents updated about future meeting dates and the planning process through this website, detroitmi.gov/delray, flyers, and Instagram, @delray_detroit. We welcome all residents and wish to engage and include everyone in the planning process.
We urge residents to be safe and help slow the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing, wearing a mask when in public, and self-quarantining for 14 days if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. For more info related to COVID-19 please visit, detroitmi.gov/coronavirus.
