Living Streets Plan

West Downtown Dearborn was at a critical turning point in 2014. With the recent development of the new Dingell Transit Center, the City seeked to build on that momentum with its first transit-oriented development. The redevelopment of West Village Drive (currently Newman Street) from a service street to a vibrant, pedestrian oriented connector was envisioned to contribute to the overall goals for a denser, walkable, mixed-use district. This Living Streets Plan, completed in 2016, builds on previous visioning work for the “West Village Connector” with a conceptual design and strategies to move the vision toward implementation. The plan carefully considers stakeholder needs and strategic phasing within the context of ongoing new development.
