The Fitzgerald Revitalization Project is an initiative led by the City of Detroit to stabilize and strengthen a neighborhood by transforming publicly owned vacant land and buildings into community assets.
Rather than work on one lot at a time, the project is focused on holistically addressing every publicly owned vacant building and lot at once for maximum impact and effectiveness.
The City has been working with residents and other stakeholders to develop a vision for the project and is adding more partners to turn it into a reality.
Creating a permanent HomeBase for community engagement, design and planning builds ongoing capacity. Residents learn by doing through the linked Workforce Development and RFP opportunities.
