What is a Special Assessment District?

The Special Assessment District is a plan to strengthen the Grandmont Rosedale neighborhoods by providing supplement security and snow removal services.  The cost of supplemental services would be shared by all area property owners and services would be administered locally by GRDC. Many community members have collaborated to bring this opportunity to our neighborhoods and are now working with the City of Detroit and local neighborhood associations to make this concept a reality.
