Located three miles east of downtown Detroit, the Villages include half a dozen historic neighborhoods and Detroit River waterfront communities, each with its own distinctive architectural, historical, and cultural attributes. This community-building grant enhances the appearance and livability of the West Village neighborhood by funding projects to improve pedestrian lighting and install bike racks, lamppost banners, artwork, and rain gardens.
