New grant to help reimagine a Detroit neighborhood
The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan is providing a grant for $48,000 towards a planning study with NW Goldberg Cares. The planned study is called “Reimagining Ferry Park.” The study is to help residents vocalize what businesses they would like to have within the commercial corridor on Ferry Park street between Holden and Lawton. So far NW Goldberg Cares has created three pocket parks, including a literary park funded by Detroit Future City. NW Goldberg Cares is a business community-led group actively seeking to maintain the viability of their neighborhood. If interested in the Reimagining Ferry Park project, you can attend any of their virtual meetings.
