Blighted Detroit alleyways have been the home to illegal dumping for over 25 years in some areas and a major contributor to the higher crime rate in those areas. The alley activated project connects people and neighborhoods together through internal neighborhood greenways. Repurposing what use to be a eyesore into a community asset once again. Civic engagement is further encouraged through this project by helping homeowners start small businesses within their garages with improvements to the property. Our solution is to connect the neighborhoods in cork town through alleyways to connect with the Joe Louis Greenway. A 39-mile bike trail will connect Detroit with surrounding cities and provide more opportunities for people living in cork town.
