The Mosaic Project: Bringing Art to Stoepel Park

You did it! Thanks to your donated $13,000, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation has met your donations, dollar for dollar, and Stoepel Park will soon be the home of the largest outdoor collection of artist Hubert Massey’s mosaics – beautiful representations of our wonderful Grandmont Rosedale community installed on all eight of our new dugouts. A generous donation from the Erb Foundation helped us reach our goal. If you are interested in being a part of the installation, stop by Stoepel Park on July 16, 17, or 18 and help out.  To volunteer contact Becki Kenderes at 313-387-4732, ext. 101 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

What is a Special Assessment District?

The Special Assessment District is a plan to strengthen the Grandmont Rosedale neighborhoods by providing supplement security and snow removal services.  The cost of supplemental services would be shared by all area property owners and services would be administered locally by GRDC. Many community members have collaborated to bring this opportunity to our neighborhoods and are now working with the City of Detroit and local neighborhood associations to make this concept a reality.
