Building the capacity of our neighbors.

 
 

Purpose

To build community capacity so that neighbors can target and plan for themselves and their neighborhood in a sustainable and achievable way. The purpose of this committee is to establish a resident led anchor in the community to plan, drive equitable development, spur authentic collaboration with city of Detroit in order to advocate for city services and prompt response time and to effectively engage stakeholders toward revitalization of the neighborhood.

Boundaries

Good Stock Detroit drives change within the following boundaries: 

  • St. Jean (East)
  • Van Dyke (West)
  • Mack (South)
  • Gratiot/94 (North)

Charge

The Good Stock Committee will steer and influence a small neighborhood level planning process that will lead to implementable strategies focused on housing preservation (e.g., resources for home repair); land ownership (e.g., equitable side lot sales); blight remediation (e.g., beautification projects); and other priorities as identified by community stakeholders engaged toward the benefit of the residents in this area. 

The Eastside Community Network will sponsor this committee and planning process in an effort to build neighborhood capacity so that the work can be handed off to a newly established neighborhood anchor; a community development organization that will intentionally engage the community, amplify resident voice and act as a chamber of commerce to support and spur commercial development and other economic investments.
