History

In 1985, Detroit Renaissance undertook a comprehensive strategic planning effort for the city of Detroit and two years later chartered the Detroit Strategic Plan Group for that purpose. The Detroit Strategic Plan then established five task forces to work on action plans which the private and public sectors could use as guidelines for addressing city needs. The task forces focused on crime, education, city image, jobs/economic development, and race relations. The Detroit Strategic Plan is made up of labor, religious, and government leaders, professionals, and members of civic and community organizations. In 1988, Frank T. Judge, Jr., Ford Motor Company's director of Civic Affairs, was named to head the Detroit Strategic Plan Implementation Office, charged with planning the implementation of the organization's recommendations. Detroit Strategic Plan continues in existence but is not as active as it was in the 1980s.
