Although the development concepts are still preliminary, our 2020 Vision is intended to address some of the issues plaguing this part of the city especially at a location where the current use is not maximized. The development of this part of the City as described in our master Plan will increase City population, attract other developments, and provide jobs for residents in the area.

The proposed development is uniquely situated, as it is adjacent to Hines parking with direct access into the park, and will offer five clear advantages to living elsewhere:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

A Complete Community

Our 2020 Vision is a community-based development. The inclusion of a Senior Citizens Housing Facility, a townhouse development and a new commercial Facility Development will make the development complete. The Final Design of the proposed structures will complement each other and will address all City of Dearborn Height’s Zoning and Building Codes.

Rather than constructing the structures on existing closed-in neighborhoods with mass of hard surfaced land areas, this proposed development will enjoy the much rare qualities of wooded site normally found in our undeveloped sub-urban lands. The development will be unique and will set the stage for the revitalization of this part of the city.

The environment will be set up as a PUD, with easy access to the different parts of the city via the existing Freeways. The environment will be enjoyable, with a very warm feel. Each Structure will be designed to promote a safe, friendly and caring community.

The unique structures will be isolated from the concerns of the outside environment beyond the park settings. All residents and users of the proposed facilities will enjoy the existing natural feeling of the current Park.

Personalized Services to Meet Individual Needs

Each resident’s personal service plan is prepared prior to becoming a resident of the proposed Senior Citizens Housing. Privacy and personal services to meet the individual tenant needs is the way of life enjoyed by the 2020 Vision Senior residents.

The same approach goes for the residents in the proposed townhouses as well as the tenants and users of the proposed commercial facility.

With regards to the improvements to our existing church facility, our proposal and research show a definite need of funds to renovate portions of the current facility, which may include things like re-roofing and upgrade of some of the building systems. This facility is currently housing a full service 800 member church organization, which currently includes a child-care facility.

Quiet surroundings and the assurance of support services are what are lacking in most of the similar facilities around the City. These will be the basis upon which the 2020 Vision shall be built upon. All structures located on this site are open to the public, and visitors will have a chance to tour and enjoy all parts of this park.

Communal Living At Its Best

A smaller residential development means we have fewer residents. It also means residents receive personalized care and services. By completing this development, we believe in supporting each resident or user with whatever level of service or care needed.

Whatever it is, be it personalized tutoring, physical therapy, substance abuse counseling, or spiritual enrichment, our 2020 Vision provides it. As residents and facility users need change, our long-term goals and 2020 Master Plan adapts to the changes.

World Community Impact will work hard to foster responsibility, not irresponsibility. Whatever services are required, our 2020 Vision offers a beautiful, private, caring alternative to seniors, children, and the general population in a park-like setting.

There will be no membership fees to continue the use of the existing park, because some of the park amenities will be maintained like the softball, and basketball courts. The senior citizens housing will be subsidized. The Charter school will be a state-of-the-arts educational center, while the Family Life and Worship Centers will welcome the entire community as well as those not residing in the immediate vicinity.

A Full Calendar of Community Activities

This 2020 Master Plan features an on-site Worship Center with a complimentary Commercial Facility. This development will provide employment for diverse professionals in teaching, adult care, counseling, ministerial staff, maintenance staff, counselors, medical staff, and promotion of various youth programs.

Because we envision this development to address some of our senior housing, educational, as well as religious needs, our 2020 Vision will offer a full calendar of events to stimulate and enrich different activities and social events on a daily basis. This 2020 Vision will also offer devotional programs, entertainment, and daily religious services.

Familiar Places Close By

Located in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, this development is close to shopping centers, freeways, professional office buildings, medical offices, hospitals, and the adjoining suburban communities (Dearborn, Westland, Romulus, Southfield, etc). There are several existing residential developments and shopping districts within walking distance of the proposed site.

The Master Plan aims to combine the convenience of an in-town location with the services and amenities of a residential neighborhood.

The Sponsor

The sponsor is World Community Impact, a non-profit organization, which was organized as a spin-off from World Deliverance Temple. World Community Impact (WCI) was organized to provide community services and engage in development activities. The first development activity was the renovation of a building to house the day care center, which WCI operates. This renovation was undertaken in 2003 and completed at a cost of $250,000. The construction was completed on time and on budget. The day care center is currently in operation and provides services to 56 children.

In addition, World Deliverance Temple has also engaged in a 1.5 million dollar renovation of the church. This renovation was completed in 2002.

The pastor of the Church, Dr. Roy Ferguson, is also the Executive Director of World Community Impact. He is a professionally trained Civil Engineer and has supervised major construction projects for the Ford Motor Company. He was also hired to direct the construction of a major subdivision for the City of Romulus. Rev. Ferguson provided overall construction supervision to both the day care renovation and the church renovation
