Congratulations to Communities First on the grand opening of Berkley Place Apartments! GCLBA supported this project with environmental investigations funded through an EPA Site Assessment grant in addition to working with Communities First on acquisition of the property. We just love to see formerly abandoned and blighted properties reused for positive community impact!

A celebration was held for the grand opening of Berkley Place Apartments, a $7 million, 33-unit multi-family housing development, on Monday, Oct. 4 at the complex, 1207 Ballenger Highway, in Flint.

The corner of Calkins and Graham Rd is looking good just a few weeks after GCLBA finished demolishing the former gas station and canopy on site with grant funds from the Genesee County Treasurer. Assessment and remediation prior to demolition was funded through EPA grants and the Michigan Department of Environmental, Great Lakes, and Energy conducted an additional removal response. Thanks to the EPA, EGLE, and the Treasurer, this site is looking much better.

We were so honored to tour Pastor Watkins and Active Boys In Christ rehabbed efforts of a formerly “substandard” GCLBA-owned property. Nearly 66 youth participated in a summer program to learn skill trade, cooking, and life skill lessons. Renovating this property was the youth’s summer project!

Thank you to Pastor Watkins, ABC volunteers, and organizational partners who are contributing to this neighborhood revitalization work on the Eastside!

It is with a very heavy heart that we share the loss of Jack Minore. Jack has been with the FRWC's board of directors since 2003. He served in many capacities, including Board Chair, interim Executive Director, and as a co-leader of our Friends of the Flint River Trail Chapter. He provided invaluable wisdom, connections, and support to the organization. His dedication to the FRWC can not be overstated. He was an all around great guy who dedicated his life and career to building a better and stronger community in Flint and Genesee County. We will miss him tremendously. Our love and support to the Minore Family, and the vast numbers of friends and colleagues who were touched by Jack's work and passion for our community.

This photo was from our Flint River 500 event that was held 12 years ago today. Jack was always quick to volunteer, especially when he could support his wolverines!

For many years, this former Land Bank historic structure was in “substandard” condition. Bob Sims, a resident of the Carriage Town neighborhood, saw the potential to rehabilitate this property to beautify his block and bolster the historic district. We are so grateful for Bob’s contributions to the revitalization work in Flint!
