2015 Annual Community Connections Breakfast, Oct 14th

What a wonderful event!  We were lucky enough to have a packed house, folks who came out early just to help GRDC celebrate another year of successes. Keynote speaker Mayor Duggan did not disappoint and gave the excited crowd insight into what the city has been up to.  Tom Goddeeris spoke about the current and upcoming GRDC projects.  To top the event off we are introducing a new video that takes a look back over the last year. Enjoy!

The event was sponsored by MGM Grand Casino, JPMorgan Chase Bank, PNC Bank and Bank of America.

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.
