Nortown Community Development Corporation
Nortown CDC is a place-based, grass roots collaborative of residents, businesses, institutions and affiliated nonprofits committed to economic revitalization of Northeast Detroit. Nortown serves as Fiduciary Agent for RESTORE NED (Northeast Detroit) and a partner in the $500,000 CREATE NED ArtPlace America funded program for Northeast Detroit from 2015-2017.
Nortown CDC is serving as a Fiduciary Agent for ongoing Restore and Create NED implementation projects. These include mini-grant applications for resident-business initiatives that foster creative and/or beautification projects in addition to clean up of blight. These endeavors have the capability of touching diverse populations that comprise Northeast Detroit and will help us promote the diversity and welcoming aspect of this area.
Aside from these Restore and Create initiatives, Nortown is committed to promoting the Milbank Conner Creek Greenway and linkage of the larger Conner Creek Greenway to other networks and redeveloping the 1873 Village of Norris with its link to Yellowstone National Park as a economic development engine to promote historic appreciation, tourism and a design center for art, music and environmental education.
