Attention, Rosedale Park residents! We have important news to share with you about snow removal.
For 20+ years, Greener Still pushed the snow from Rosedale Park sidewalks and streets. The owner of Greener Still very recently retired and closed his business. Upon learning this, RPIA Public Works Committee jumped into action to solve this sudden lack of service for our community.
TESTIMONIAL RESOLUTION from Detroit City Council
At the March 2016 membership meeting, Council MemberJames Tate presented a Testimonial Resolution from the Detroit City Council to our neighborhood and our neighborhood association. Read the full text of the resolution below, chocked full of many interesting historical tidbits - :-)
GRDC has announced a series of planning meetings with a team from the Congress for New Urbanism, an internationally renowned organization of urban planners, designers, developers, and architects. The meetings are part of a project CNU is conducting as part of their world-wide convention, which will be held in Detroit this June.
Our community is one of four in the southeastern Michigan region selected to receive professional design assistance for Grand River Avenue between Warwick and Evergreen. Through a 3-day design process, residents, as well as elected and appointed officials, the Michigan Department of Transportation, the City of Detroit’s Planning and Development and Public Works Departments, business owners, property owners, cycling enthusiasts, commuters and walkers will be looking at Grand River Avenue and how we can calm traffic to make it a more walkable and enjoyable commercial corridor for our community.
We want as many sets of eyes as possible, as the team of consultants will conduct a series of feedback loops (essentially, they will take input, produce preliminary designs, take input on those designs, redesign, take more feedback, etc.)
Help plan the kind of friendly commercial street our neighborhood deserves.
Over 100 neighbors came out on Tuesday, March 15 to kick off a year-long celebration of Rosedale Park's first 100 years. Our neighborhood was first "platted" in 1916, and construction of the first houses and sidewalks began in 1917. The event, part of the spring general membership meeting at the North Rosedale Community House, included birthday cake, historic presentations, and recognition of our "Super Senior" neighbors, ages 90+.
To see some photos from the celebration, go to the District 1 Detroit Facebook page by clicking here.
Stay tuned for more information on other centennial events honoring our neighborhood's history.
