Gratiot / 7 Mile Framework Plan
City leaders and residents will be coming together this year to create a plan for the neighborhoods near Gratiot and 7 Mile in northeast Detroit. The Gratiot/7 Mile Neighborhood Framework Plan is a city-led plan of action, co-crafted by residents to guide future growth and investment in the neighborhood. Several plans are being conducted citywide, including in the Gratiot/7 Mile area. This project will be supported by the Strategic Neighborhood Fund, which is a commitment to implementing the recommendations of this plan and those in nine other areas of Detroit.
The Gratiot/7 Mile planning area includes neighborhoods bounded by East 8 Mile Road, Kelly Road, Houston- Whittier Avenue, and Schoenherr Road. The plan will look at stabilizing single family neighborhoods, multi-family housing and retail opportunities, as well as park, greenway, and streetscape improvements. Planning activities will begin in 2019.
How you can get ready & involved:
- Tell your neighbors about the planning process and invite them to participate
- Attend town halls and related community events about the plan
- Share your neighborhood stories, experiences, and ideas with us!
As the threat of the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to expand globally, our department has requested we postpone all public meetings and any consultant travel. Although highly anticipated, we will be canceling the 2nd community meeting until further notice to comply with these directives and in consideration of the well-being of residents and stakeholders in the G7 community.
Delivering a high-quality, transformative, community supported plan remains our priority and we are committed to finding ways to deliver that in the timeframe we promised.
Stay tuned to the G7 website and sign up for our e-newsletter for further updates about the plan and rescheduled meeting dates.
