New Plan for Chevy in the Hole Site Receives Positive Reviews
A new plan for the Chevy in the Hole site in Flint was debuted at a public meeting Thursday night.
MLive says the plan for transforming the former Chevrolet manufacturing site into a public park received positive reviews from the 70 or so people who showed up for the meeting. The 60 acre site is currently covered with concrete slabs and the new plan has walking paths, plants, greens and wetlands. Along with the transformation of the city owned site would come a new name - Chevy Commons.
A $1.6 million grant from the Environmental Protection Agency would help with the first phase of renovations scheduled for this August. A third of the site would have dirt dumped over the concrete, a new parking area, and walking paths and shrubs installed.
