at the Palmer Park Community House
11am-1pm and 2-4pm
Come share your thoughts on a future walking and biking route crossing 31.5 miles of Detroit and let the city know how to make this greenway work for you! Get involved in the preliminary stages of the Joe Louis Greenway by viewing the finalists’ proposals for the planning framework and participating in a Q&A with the city officials and consulting firms behind its development. The meeting will be at the Palmer Park Community House from 11 am - 1 pm and again from 2 - 4 pm
The Joe Louis Greenway (JLG), named after Detroit boxing legend, will be a new 31.5-mile recreational pathway connecting neighborhoods across the city and to the rest of the region. The Greenway' project will be a combination of new infrastructure and links to existing but disjointed trails, ultimately providing a safe and efficient loop around the city, with connections from 8 Mile all the way to the Detroit Riverfront, all without a car. The greenway is expected to stabilize neighborhoods, create jobs, support transportation, and create new spaces for play citywide. This will be a greenway for every Detroiter.
The Palmer Park Community House is the colorful painted building next to the Splash Pad at the split of Merrill Plaisance and Pontchartrain.
