February 4th Steering Committee Meeting
Steering Committee members gathered to review their newly revised roles and responsibilities. The Steering Committee will be responsible for continuing to ensure broad community input into the planning process, while also providing recommendations to the Planning Commission on zoning issues, the capital Improvement plan, and sub-area plans.
A key role of the Steering Committee moving forward will be the recruitment and participation with the Implementation Task Groups. These groups will be charged with channeling neighborhood and institutional resources towards the implementation of the Imagine Flint
master plan. Their role will be to parlay vision into action,
by implementing the strategies and objectives of the master plan. Task Group responsibilities and applications can be found here
Mayor's State of the City Address
On March 3rd, Mayor Walling gave his annual State of the City Address. In it, Mayor Walling called on residents and stakeholders to take part in blight elimination efforts and support the implementation of the Imagine Flint
Master Plan. In the spirit of that call, here are just a few ways that you can help implement the Master Plan
- Adopt a city park through Keep Genesee County Beautiful
- Take care of a vacant property next to your house or on your block.
- Help make your neighborhood safer by joining a neighborhood watch, Flint Neighborhoods United
or the City of Flint Blue Badge Corps
; report criminal activity to the police.
Ultimately, the success of the master plan will be dependent on citizens and partners assisting with implementation. The master plan is a true community vision with the needs of active community members to move Flint Forward.
