About the City of Flint Comprehensive Master Plan
The Master Plan will be guided by community vision and input, and result in a blueprint for the City over the next twenty years. The City of Flint was awarded a 1.57 million dollar Community Challenge Grant from the
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This grant includes matching funds from various community stakeholders and is to be used for the creation of a Master Plan, updated Zoning Code, and Capital Improvement Plan. The last officially adopted comprehensive Master Plan for the City of Flint was
created over fifty years ago. The 1960 plan forecasted continued population growth and a robust economy. Without a Master Plan and updated Zoning Code, planning activities have been sporadic and uncoordinated
and limited resources have been poorly allocated, resulting in missed development opportunities and continued economic decline.
