Vacant Homes Task Force
Chair: Clarenda Webb, Beverly Frederick, and Fred Russell
In 2006, recognizing the potential devastation that the national foreclosure crisis could have on our neighborhood, the North Rosedale Park Civic Association convened a task force to begin identifying solutions to preserve neighborhood properties. In 2007, the work was broadened by the Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation and under their leadership a group of very committed neighbors have collaborated with the the Detroit Association of Realtors, Detroit Vacant Property Campaign, and all of our area neighborhood associations to tackle the problems associated with the increased number of vacant homes in our community.
