Michigan Central Community Engagement

Community

Michigan Central believes being a good neighbor means more than just participating in our community, it means elevating voices and ideas that come from the people who we call neighbors. Open dialogue, collaboration and a community-first approach: we believe this will help drive innovation and equitable outcomes for residents, businesses and innovators.

Being a Good Neighbor

We developed this survey to help create a baseline understanding of the public’s perception of Michigan Central. We will measure the results every year to see how the public’s perception of Michigan Central changes over time, which in turn will help us to develop better programs, technologies and places. This survey will take about five minutes to complete

Community Benefits Ordinance

Under the City of Detroit’s Community Benefits Ordinance, Ford is investing $10 million to support residents of the Michigan Central impact area with key programs that meet the needs of Corktown and Southwest Detroit such as economic growth, housing affordability, workforce development, neighborhood safety and preserving the neighborhood’s culture and quality of life.

These benefits are both in response to the community’s requests and build on Ford’s values which include putting people first, equity, inclusiveness, and innovation. These investments also complement our already $14+ million annual support from Ford’s philanthropic arm, the Ford Fund, to Detroit.
