August 2023 Monthly Meeting Newsletter

MacDowell Community Council’s monthly meeting is hosting Detroit’s “Blight Czarina”, Attorney Katrina Crawley, who joins us at our August community meeting.

Meet one of the city’s best known anti-blight sponsors. Attorney Crawley, known affectionately as the “Blight Czarina”, is the driving force behind the “Blight to Beauty” initiative in Detroit. As an accomplished attorney and community advocate, she helps lead this transformative initiative to combat urban decay and revitalize neglected neighborhoods. Through strategic partnerships with local organizations and city officials, Blight to Beauty empowers residents to reclaim abandoned properties and convert them into vibrant community spaces. Blending legal expertise with grassroots efforts, the initiative has not only revitalized areas once plagued by blight but also fostered a renewed sense of pride and unity among Detroit’s residents

Learn about the annual September officer election, and how you may nominate yourself or another neighbor to help drive the direction of the council.

We are back at MacDowell Prep Academy this month.

Everyone is welcome. Homeowners and Renters come and help MacDowell be one of Detroit’s shining communities.
