Governor Dayton, Mayor Coleman and I visitng Ford in Michigan.


Last month, Governor Dayton, Mayor Coleman and I visited with Ford Executives to share our vision for the site. It was a great opportunity to show Ford that this site is a priority for both the city and the state.


We stressed how important it is for Ford to clean up their environmental contamination, the vibrant 21st Century vision the City has for the redevelopment and the importance of getting economic development on the site soon. Further, we discussed Fords long-term legacy in the neighborhood, specifically regarding our beloved Little League fields. It was a very positive meeting, and we look forward to our continued partnership with Ford as the redevelopment moves forward. Stay in the loop. Sign up for Ford updates.

Read below to see what else my office is working on. Have a great spring, and, as always, call or email if you have questions, concerns, or want to grab coffee.

Spring Means Road Construction

This time last year our neighborhood was overwhelmed by street construction. With Ford Parkway and Randolph closed and miscellaneous A-Line construction, traffic was often slowed to a crawl.  This summer will be better—slightly. For a complete list of 2016 projects and how the City chose them to be included in the 5-Year plan check out Public Work’s engineer John Maczko’s presentation to the Highland District Council. I’ll also have weekly construction updates on the Ward 3 website and Facebook page.

Call or email anytime with your thoughts or questions.
