Later today, the Detroit Works Project is scheduled to release its final plan for the adaptive reuse of the depopulated parts of Detroit. The Detroit Free Press published a summary of it, which is complete with a few maps.
Under this plan, the Warrendale neighborhood should see more small-scale community gardens and pocket parks that will take the place of vacant homes in the neighborhood. They also propose a few smaller ponds to capture rainwater and keep it from overtaxing our sewage system.
