CALL to Action: Multi-Jurisdictional Muskegon Community Driven Taskforce for Strategic Planning of Comprehensive Housing Production and Economic Development Plan:
As a community, it is important that we conceptualize the potentials of what unregulated Rezoning Policy married with our Resident’s Vulnerability could look like “for us,” in terms of not only Displacement; but Character and Culture of our Community, Police Harassment, Dilution Political power and further Disparity in Wealth Building Opportunities.
3N1Community created this qualitative and quantitative Multi-Jurisdictional Cross Sector Visioning Taskforce to understand & create community driven initiatives that include Capital Investments, Community Preservation/Beautification, education, Housing, Economic opportunity and Youth Concerns.
