This grant will provide project support to the Genesee County Parks & Recreation Commission for the Flint River Restoration Project. Funds from this grant will be used for construction of the green cap on Phase III of Chevy Commons. The project is the result of a broad group of diverse partners coming together to create a vision for the Flint riverfront as a unique community asset that is accessible and safe for all residents to utilize, drive economic opportunities, and enhance local infrastructure by removing the Hamilton Dam. The project will support the overall economic development opportunities for Flint by creating greater connectivity from the University of Michigan-Flint to downtown and Kettering University, removing hazardous infrastructure, improving storm water and flood control systems, developing underutilized public property, and capping contamination at a former industrial site.
