The EDC established a subsidiary corporation, known as the Neighborhood Development Corporation (the “NDC”), to implement housing and neighborhood programs within qualified blighted or redevelopment areas. The NDC can implement a program to acquire property, construct improvements, and rehabilitate or construct houses for immediate sale pursuant to a project plan approved by Detroit City Council. For example, the NDC implemented a residential project on the southeast side of Detroit commonly known as Jefferson Village.
The NDC is governed by the same Board of Directors comprising of the EDC Board of Directors. EDC board members are, with certain exceptions, appointed by the mayor subject to the consent of City Council.
Meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 8:45 AM. The NDC may also hold special meetings as needed. The Regular meeting scheduled for Tuesday, January 22, 2019 has been cancelled. The next Regular meeting is scheduled Tuesday, February 26, 2019. All meetings are announced by a posting outside the offices of the DEGC, Guardian Building, 500 Griswold, Suite 2200, Detroit and the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center.
