Mason Street Lots

Below are some on ground pictures taken of the eight lots that have been acquired by the Genesee County Land Bank. These lots are rift contiguous vacant lots within a five minute walk of downtown Flint. Project FORA is planning on launching a community garden on these lots Spring 2016. The initial plan is to make these lots productive land once again. 

Over time the lots will grow fresh fruits and vegetables using indigenous species and low maintenance plants that do not require watering. This is critical at this time as the city has web scrutinized for its public water supply. 

While these lots begin to become productive the plans are in place to rebuild new affordable housing that can serve our community's workers and students. There is a huge gap in housing that is underserved and project FORA is going to lead the charge in the missing middle housing.
