The East Riverfront District presents a once-in-a-generational opportunity for the community to work hand-in-hand with the City of Detroit and the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy to re-imagine the areas as an inviting, inclusive and diverse place for the people of Detroit and its visitors.

Local residents and community leaders will have a meaningful role in creating the vision for an economically, culturally and environmentally healthy district where the City reconnents with its greatest natural resource, The Detroit River.
