Rosedale Park Improvement Association seeks a new contractor to remove snow from our streets.
For many years, street snow removal has been taken care of by Clay Blaesser/Greener Still. RPIA just learned that Clay has retired and will no longer remove our snow.
That’s why we are soliciting bids from contractors who are interested in providing this service to our neighborhood for winter 2016-2017. Our Request for Proposals (RFP) is now available at the link below. The deadline for submitting bids is Wednesday, Oct. 12. Liability insurance required.
Request and Respond to proposals via RPIA President Pam Weinstein at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions, call Pam at 313-231-2244 or Phil Schloop at 313-802-6447.

The five neighborhood associations comprising Grandmont Rosedale Communities are eager to show off fine homes for sale during their 11th Annual Neighborhood Open House to be held on Sunday, May 15 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Up to 15 homes will be open in varied styles and price points ranging from $60,000 to $150,000.
Visitors must register at the North Rosedale Park Community House, 18445 Scarsdale, where they can obtain a listing of homes that will be open that day and get information on financing options, insurance resources, and tax abatement. In addition to homes for sale, several Grandmont Rosedale residents are opening their homes that day for viewing, so that visitors can get a first-hand feel of what it is like to live in one of Detroit’s most desirable neighborhoods.
Bus tours, narrated by local residents, will run throughout the afternoon, highlighting neighborhood amenities and some featured homes.
GRDC has announced a series of planning meetings with a team from the Congress for New Urbanism, an internationally renowned organization of urban planners, designers, developers, and architects. The meetings are part of a project CNU is conducting as part of their world-wide convention, which will be held in Detroit this June.
Our community is one of four in the southeastern Michigan region selected to receive professional design assistance for Grand River Avenue between Warwick and Evergreen. Through a 3-day design process, residents, as well as elected and appointed officials, the Michigan Department of Transportation, the City of Detroit’s Planning and Development and Public Works Departments, business owners, property owners, cycling enthusiasts, commuters and walkers will be looking at Grand River Avenue and how we can calm traffic to make it a more walkable and enjoyable commercial corridor for our community.
We want as many sets of eyes as possible, as the team of consultants will conduct a series of feedback loops (essentially, they will take input, produce preliminary designs, take input on those designs, redesign, take more feedback, etc.)
Help plan the kind of friendly commercial street our neighborhood deserves.
Over 100 neighbors came out on Tuesday, March 15 to kick off a year-long celebration of Rosedale Park's first 100 years. Our neighborhood was first "platted" in 1916, and construction of the first houses and sidewalks began in 1917. The event, part of the spring general membership meeting at the North Rosedale Community House, included birthday cake, historic presentations, and recognition of our "Super Senior" neighbors, ages 90+.
To see some photos from the celebration, go to the District 1 Detroit Facebook page by clicking here.
Stay tuned for more information on other centennial events honoring our neighborhood's history.
