Eight Mile Boulevard Association (Keep Michigan Beautiful)

The Eight Mile Boulevard Association revitalizes a 27 mile stretch of Eight Mile Road, including three counties, thirteen communities and over 1,700 businesses. As part of our project, we held a corridor-wide cleanup event, “Clean the D” and supported the façade renovation of two Eight Mile businesses through our Façade Improvement Program.

As a result of Clean the D, we and more than 150 volunteers completed six major projects, including three gardens and the removal of approximately 4,500 pounds of litter and debris from Eight Mile. As a result of the Façade Improvement Program, we supported over $200,000 in private investment with only $15,000 in façade assistance grants.
