The City of Detroit and the Detroit Land Bank Authority are moving forward in partnership on a Greater Corktown housing strategy, which could result in the creation of more affordable housing units located across the Historic and North Corktown neighborhoods. After significant dialogue with the community over the past year through the Greater Corktown planning framework process and MI Central Station Community Benefits process, concerns around preservation of existing and construction of new affordable housing units within Corktown have constantly risen to the forefront.
These conversations as well as a series of very successful community meetings in early 2020, have resulted in the City’s Planning & Development and Housing & Revitalization Departments to work towards applying for a Choice Neighborhoods Implementation (CNI) grant by this coming summer 2020.
