Housing and Neighborhoods
Planning and Community Development seeks to create neighborhoods which are well-maintained, livable and desirable. A number of programs have been created in order to achieve those objectives.
The City offers an incentive program to increase owner-occupancy within a defined area of the city. Incentives of up to $10,000 are available. Click here to learn more.
Department staff participate in the Neighborhood Resource Unit, a collaborative team that seeks to foster positive improvement in the City’s neighborhoods. Click here to learn more.
Thanks to the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, the City requested and received a grant to offer mini grants to fund programs, projects or improvements within neighborhoods. Since the grant was received in 1999, over 42 mini grants have been awarded to various neighborhood groups for projects such as picnics and ice cream socials, Neighborhood Watch programs, landscape beautification, cleanup, and leadership training.
