Applied Research and Service by Urban Planning Students in the HOPE Village Initiative Area

To support creative redevelopment efforts in Detroit, the Graham Institute partnered with the Detroit-based nonprofit civil and human rights organization Focus: HOPE to conduct the Sustainability and the HOPE Village Initiative Integrated Assessment
 
As one of six projects in the overall assessment, this project supported three U-M graduate students working onsite with Focus: HOPE on a wide variety of community planning initiatives. Among others, these included creation of a community asset map, development of a master plan for the Linwood Avenue commercial corridor, extensive property research to help target neighborhood improvement projects, and streetscape improvement efforts.
