Plans for the site of a former General Motors manufacturing complex in Flint known as "Chevy in the Hole" to be transformed into parkland are moving forward.
A design for the site, which is being called Chevy Commons, is being presented to the public on Thursday by the city and the Genesee County Land Bank. Officials are reviewing the plans, which include details about environmental conditions at the site along the Flint River.
In a statement, officials say the design plan provides a "blueprint" to convert about 60 acres of the city-owned, former manufacturing site into a natural area.
The site will be redeveloped in phases to include open grasslands, woodlands and wetlands. Plans also call for trails that will connect with neighborhoods and regional trail network.
