July 31, 2014

Students pursuing their master's degree in urban planning at Wayne State University recently presented their capstone project analyzing the city of Hazel Park and what long-term goals could be incorporated into the city's master plan, which hasn't been updated since 2000. The study, which took three months to complete, analyzed the John R corridor, Nine Mile corridor and Hazel Park Raceway, and concluded there are opportunities to leverage the city's assets in these areas to reshape the image of Hazel Park and foster meaningful growth for the future. "We're so very pleased that the Department of Urban Studies at Wayne State chose Hazel Park to be the target community for their capstone assignment," said Hazel Park City Manager Ed Klobucher. "We're very excited to be able to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and education these students are bringing to Hazel Park."
