A group of organizations is hoping to create a coalition of leaders within Flint to deal with major issues affecting residents.

The group Flint Neighborhoods United, which describes itself as "One City. One theme - a theme of reinventing itself and providing all of us an opportunity to live," is supported by the Flint Police Department, Michigan State Police, Michigan State University and the Building Neighborhood project. Their goal is to create a group of leaders from the over 40 neighborhood associations, crime watches and block clubs, as stakeholders to deal with major issues affecting Flint residents. The group will work with the city, state, and when applicable, the federal government to find answers dealing with issues that confront the City.

Flint Neighborhoods United will hold a meeting this Saturday, February 1, 2014 from 9 - 11 a.m. at the Kearsley Park - Mott Service Center loacted at 1909 Kearsley Prak Blvd in Flint.
