Warrendale Cody Rouge

Warrendale/Cody Rouge Neighborhood Framework Plan

The Warrendale/Cody Rouge Neighborhood Plan is a child-centric plan of action, co-crafted by residents and the City of Detroit to guide future growth and investment in the neighborhood. The Plan focuses on four strategic areas:

  • Housing
  • Economic Development
  • Open Space + Parks + Public Lands
  • Streetscape + Transportation Mobility

The Neighborhood Framework Plan is supported by the DTE Energy, the General Motors Corporate Giving, the Skillman Foundation, and the Quicken Loans Community Fund. Residents, community stakeholders, and the City will work together to determine how investments from our partners should be made within the planning area to improve quality of life for residents, children, and their families.

Over the next year, the city government’s Planning & Development Department will be conducting a “Youth-Centric Neighborhood Framework” process for west side neighborhoods of Warren Avenue, Warrendale, Franklin Park, and Joy Community, focusing on the area from West Chicago to Ford/Paul and Rouge Park to Greenfield.

At the event, there will be food from Tijuana’s & Islamic Center of Detroit, music from DJ Todd Everett, and the organizations involved in the Steering Committee will introduce themselves. The main event for the evening is a presentation by a group of nine area teenagers who have spent the last 10 weeks investigating the question: What is a Neighborhood Framework? This has included interviews with city officials in charge of streets, vacant buildings, the Land Bank, and more. You’ll have the chance to ask them questions about what they learned.
