Help us make Detroit’s neighborhood descriptions and city map right
Last year, we launched TheNeighborhoods.org with a few things in mind: Communicating with Detroit residents about ongoing updates from city government, creating more media and content for and from Detroiters, and sharing our stories from the city with the world.
But above all, The Neighborhoods is a place where you can learn more about your neighborhood — or a neighborhood you’d like to call home someday. One of the more popular features of the site is the clickable citywide map, in which more than 200 neighborhoods across the city each have their own page that has descriptions of the area and key statistics, ranging from number of homes in the neighborhood to number of schools and parks, available for perusal.
Some neighborhoods, however, are missing descriptions. A handful of neighborhoods are missing pages altogether. We’ve also received feedback on neighborhood names and boundaries, or if neighborhood descriptions can be edited.
