DETROIT (AP) - A nonprofit group working with Detroit leaders on long-term revitalization of the city and its neighborhoods has released a 5-year strategic plan.
Detroit Future City says Monday that parts of the plan call for using open space as part of land-use policy, supporting ecosystems to reduce storm water overflows and improving existing single-family rental properties.
Detroit Future City was launched in 2013 to push recommendations in the 349-page Detroit Future City Strategic Framework. The framework is a 50-year vision for Detroit.
Board Chair Laura Trudeau said in a release the "new strategic plan will guide the growth of our reach and impact in the next five years with a laser focus to spark improvements in more of Detroit's neighborhoods."
The Troy-based Kresge Foundation provided initial funding for Detroit Future City.
