West Side Neighbors Coming Together

A few weeks ago, a Sunflower popped up at an unusual time in the growing season. Well, not really. During a community celebration where children played and adults got better acquainted, a ceramic Sunflower was installed at Littlefield Park located behind Nobel Prek-8 School on the Westside of Detroit. The Sunflower included the names of organizations that are part of District 7 One Voice.
D7 One Voice is a coming together of organizations in the Wyoming-Schoolcraft area to collectively care for our community.
Like many areas throughout Detroit, Wyoming-Schoolcraft needs tender loving care. Without active local residents driving the vision for our neighborhoods, decisions for schools, businesses and housing will be left up to outsiders, developers, and government officials who want to create they kinds of communities that they think we should have or they want us to have.
I encourage all Detroiters to get involved in creating the kind of community we want. We have much to celebrate about what we have done and what we hope to do.
