Congress for the New Urbanism Visits Grandmont Rosedale

More than 60 residents and business owners attended a design charrette at Bushnell Congregational Church April 15 - 17 called “Making Grand River Avenue more walkable, bikeable and accessible.” This event was sponsored by GRDC and the Congress for the New Urbanism, and also involved planning and design firms Design Team+, Hall Planning & Engineering, and Urban Advantage. The charrette focused on five "big ideas" that community members agreed upon: Focus efforts and create a center, restore a “great street,” add destinations, prepare for more transit and, finally, create a main street as proud as the neighborhoods. For a full recap of the weekend, including slides from the final presentation, please visit

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.
