North End FAQ

What is the North End planning framework?

The North End planning framework will be a guiding document to support the equitable and inclusive growth and stability of the North End neighborhood. It will be created through a participatory planning process that involves residents and community members of the neighborhood over the course of 12-16 months. The final document will include goals and specific strategies that work to improve the quality of life for all current and future residents.

How do I stay involved?

There will be several ways to become and remain involved and connected to this process. Participate in the many events and workshops that will take place (due to COVID many workshops and meetings may be through ZOOM), sign up to the project mailing list (link) for study updates, and contact city planning staff directly with your ideas, interests, and priorities.

How will my feedback be used?

Your comments, ideas, and suggestions are necessary for a successful planning process. The information gathered for the North End framework is intended to help guide city resources while developing a collective vision for the North End.

What feedback is the City of Detroit looking for?

Any feedback is welcomed, however not every suggestion can nor will be implemented. A significant number of discussions most likely will occur around the following topics:

  • Future land-use strategies of current vacant and undeveloped land
  • Suggestions for new housing typologies and the affordability of new housing developments
  • Mobility issues and barriers (how you move around your neighborhood)
  • Neighborhood Safety
  • Arts and culture
  • Parks and open spaces
  • Public land disposition processes
What is the community outreach process?

This City’s Planning and Development Department (PDD) has been actively engaging with residents, community-based organizations, and other stakeholders for many months. This process will allow the planning staff to conduct a more robust, collaborative outreach process that will include working meetings, public events, door-to-door interactions, and online platforms in order to attempt to connect with as many North End residents and community members as possible.
