Mexicantown: Vernor/Bagley Vista
Detroit, MI (2010)
The Mexicantown: Vernor/Bagley Vista is a community-based development plan that focuses on a 20-block area surrounding the 1-75 and Vernor intersection in Southwest Detroit. The project brought together over 75 individuals representing various interests, organizations, and cultures.
The main intentions of the project voiced by the stakeholders were to: (1) Link Mexicantown to surrounding systems and neighborhoods (2) Promote a multi-cultural neighborhood and (3) Encourage the “triple bottom line” of social, economic and environmental sustainability.
The plan resulted in a renewed focus to create strong connections to Corktown and the Riverfront and to amplify the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of the neighborhood throughout the district.
