Grand River Corridor Improvement Authority

The cities of Farmington and Farmington Hills jointly developed the Grand River Corridor Improvement Authority to create, and then implement, a vision plan for the improvement and redevelopment of the Grand River Corridor. The City of Farmington’s portion of the proposed development primarily includes commercial uses on either side of Grand River from Mayfield Street to Cora Avenue.

The plan will be used to guide and promote future growth and development, including capital improvements. The authority is committed to promote economic growth, mixed uses, well-designed and environmentally responsible development, historic preservation, attractive streetscapes and landscapes, and create new opportunities for pedestrian access.
