About

In 2009, the Cities of Farmington and Farmington Hills began looking at strategies to work cooperatively on the revitalization of the Grand River Corridor. The Corridor Improvement Authority Act provided the best opportunity through its suite of economic development tools. Spending the next two years working with property owners to identify the level of interest in this approach, elected officials in the two Cities determined it was time to move forward. In October 2011, a Corridor Improvement Authority was created along Grand River in each community running continues from Mayfield Street in Farmington To 8 Mile and Inkster Road in Farmington Hills.

This joint undertaking is working to improve the appearance, connectivity and economic competitiveness of the Grand River Corridor. The ultimate goal is to make the area a great place for people to live, work, gather and navigate easily, regardless their mode of transportation. The efforts of the Authorities, guided by the Vision Plan, will work to implement the Community’s vision for the Grand River Corridor. This process will be more of a marathon than a sprint where both public and private sector strategies will be identified and implemented to bring about the revitalization of the Corridor.
