Flint Riverfront Restoration Project public engagement

Shared as a courtesy. A press release from Genesee County Parks:

Individuals who live, work, or recreate in Flint and Genesee County are invited to have their say on the future of improvements to Riverbank Park in downtown Flint. The Flint Riverfront Restoration Project provides a vision that will transform the riverfront from a neglected resource into a healthy and vibrant community asset. The vision calls for the rejuvenation of the river and riverfront through the creation of water-based recreational opportunities, park improvements, underutilized property redevelopment, enhanced community connectivity, ecosystem restoration and improved stormwater and flood control. Riverbank Park is a critical part of the Flint Riverfront Restoration Project and construction to improve it is slated to begin in 2022.

Riverbank Park is a critical part of the Flint Riverfront Restoration Project. Genesee County Parks, the City of Flint, and other partners seek fresh input to integrate into the final designs for improvements to Riverbank Park. Social, environmental, and economic concerns, as well as user preference, must be incorporated into the park’s future so that it can meet the needs of residents and visitors. Two additional engagement sessions will occur later this year.
