Flint River District Strategy Sasaki Plan

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Flint River District will become a vibrant, mixed-use urban area containing stable, diverse and safe residential neighborhoods, successful research and development businesses, and new eighborhood-scale retail uses, all centered around an interconnected network of riverfront parks and natural open spaces. The vision for the District builds on three major framework elements:

  1. Reclaiming the Flint River to create an attractive and inviting open space feature at the center of the District that is integrated with the regional open space network
  2. Transforming Third Avenue into a new University Boulevard with a strong visual identity that gives prominence to adjacent institutions, and encourages new investment in surrounding neighborhoods.
  3. Implementing several strategic development initiatives that will build on these two framework elements.
