University Commons Organization

Detroit, Michigan



This Northwest Detroit community organization engages neighborhood associations, Livernois Avenue businesses, and two academic institutions – Marygrove College and the University of Detroit-Mercy – in projects designed to improve the surrounding residential and business environments. This community-building grant provides funding for façade updates along Livernois Avenue, a vital commercial strip, and beautification of the Livernois median.
