ProblemThe Wayne County Department of Economic Development has put the Ford Village Industry Plant along the Rouge River in Hines Park AND the parklands up for sale under the guise of economic development. The mills were gifted to the park trustees in 1947 with a specification they be used for park purposes.
SolutionAdaptive reuse of these facilities is possible under a joint lease agreement, not requiring the sale of parklands.
Personal storyThe Save Hines Park group is mobilizing to prevent the sale of Wayne County parklands and floodway so they can be preserved.
