Taylor’s popular Good to Great Neighborhood Program will restart this spring and will focus on finishing much of the north end of the community before targeting the southwest corner. The program brings together all departments simultaneously and focuses them on a given neighborhood, or area. While it appears more of a Department of Public Works’ effort, almost every department in the City is involved in some way.
Here is the tentative 2020 schedule, in order:
Last year, G2G spent the majority of its time in the northwest sector of the community, between Beverly, Van Born, Beech Daly and Inkster. Included in that effort were vast improvements to Northwest Park, home of Taylor’s only outdoor pool. The program poured about $500,000 into the park, adding asphalt walking paths, lighting, a new pavilion, fitness and playscape areas, digital marquee and even various new concrete game tables. The existing basketball courts were resurfaced and re-striped, and new backboards were added. Even new benches and portable restrooms will be available to visitors this spring.
As soon as the weather breaks – likely sometime in March or April – G2G letters will be mailed to everyone living in the Ecorse/Beech Daly/I-94 neighborhood, explaining the program and including various offers and invitations. As the program moves from area to area, more letters will be mailed to residents directly affected.
