City of Flint - Master Plan Implementation
 
 
 
The City of Flint Master Plan is a framework outlining goals and strategies to help Flint become a healthier, sustainable and vibrant place to live, work and play. To support this framework the City of Flint AmeriCorps VISTA members implement city-wide master plan goals by engaging the community in thoughtful stakeholder dialogue, facilitating micro-projects, recruiting volunteers to support these efforts and developing media and communication tools to share the story of service. VISTAs serve to implement the Master Plan in areas including parks and green spaces, safety, neighborhood engagement, and more. Member activities include engaging the community in thoughtful stakeholder dialogue, facilitating micro-projects, recruiting volunteers to support these efforts and developing media and communication tools to share the story of service.
