The Community Strategic Framework Planning Sessions of NE Detroit lays down foundation for the future.
Reflections by Dortheã E. Thomas
As a lifetime resident of Northeast Detroit, I personally believe that it’s important for our community to start bridging together for the benefit of our future.
Actually, for the first time in history residents, associations, and Nonprofits like Hope for GREEN DETROIT came together as a community with faith leaders, neighborhood groups, and local businesses to help create the first strategic framework plan to envision what we want the future of Northeast Detroit to reflect.
For every project, it started off as a vision with a plan.
As the youngest form of involvement Hope for GREEN Detroit knows it’s important that we have more young adults and youth representation at the table to help with the decision-making. With innovative ideas such as solar energy, wind farms, and green sustainable practices Detroit will surely rise again into a new economy.
The entire community should have their own active input on what our community should look like 10 to 20 years from now; this includes the young. Without the voice of the youth, there is no future.
The future of Northeast Detroit is bright.
