Focus Group: Jefferson Village

The East Riverfront Assets Study

The year-long East Riverfront Assets Study (ERAS) is an initiative under the Parks & Recreation Strategic Plan. The ERAS will take a focused look at the parks between Hart Plaza and St. Jean through a planning study. The study aims to:

  • Learn how Detroiters use these sites now and how they envision them in the future
  • Develop a connective vision and actionable plan for creating vibrant, sustainable destinations along the riverfront
  • Assess the infrastructure needs of Hart Plaza and the city owned Marinas
  • Consider unique feature of each park and connect opportunities to create a continuous riverfront experience
  • Revisit and build upon past studies completed by partner agencies such as the 2018 East RiverFront Framework Plan
  • Collect and use input from community stakeholders to help shape a final strategic plan

This focus group is centered around Jefferson Village, a residential area included as part of this study due to its adjacency to Riverside Marina. Everyone’s welcome to attend any of the focus groups. But we especially want to hear from people who live, work or play near this neighborhood, and those who care deeply about its future.
