The Institute without Boundaries (IwB), Lawrence Technological University and Central Michigan University are collaborating and have brought a charrette to Eastpointe. A charrette you say? According to IwB, a charrette is an intensive, collaborative process that brings together students, community members and professionals to develop innovative solutions for complex issues.
The charrette will take place throughout the City focusing on four main areas: Boulevards & Public Space with regard to Kelly Road, Kennedy Park and Spindler Park; our Redevelopment Site at Colonial Dodge; the Main Street Node Gratiot Avenue; and the Mobility Hub at 8 Mile Road and Gratiot Avenue.
The charette is taking place tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday, and there was a Launch this evening.
