With the mowing season winding down and temperatures outside dropping, Planning Staff would like to take this opportunity to provide the community with an update on the progress occurring within the Flint Parks.
As many of you may know, beginning July 1 2014, the Department of Planning and Development assumed responsibility of the City's Parks and Recreation functions. Since that time, staff has aggressively worked to forge partnerships with local park advocates and community organizations to improve the quality and accessibility of Flint's parks and open spaces.
We wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge the tremendous work that is being done by residents, neighborhood groups, and local business to help improve and beautify these public spaces. Their hard work and dedication is what enables Flint parks to remain the vibrant, thriving centers of our neighborhoods.
If you or anyone you know is involved in cleanup and improvement work in any City park, we want to hear about it! To learn more about the work in Flint parks or to connect with the Master Plan, please contact planning staff at:
