City Developing Anti-Racism Plan


In response to the tragic and senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and too many others, on June 5th, our city issued the Huntington Woods Statement Condemning Acts of Racial Injustice and Commitment for Justice, Fairness and Peace for All.   It reinforced our commitment to work to make Huntington Woods a warm and welcoming city, free of fear and turmoil. Further, our city recognizes the need to take action to ensure equity, inclusion, and diversity in our community.  We will now take the next steps to enact this commitment. This begins with a plan, demonstrable actions, and measurable outcomes.  

The draft plan is on our website. Thoughts, comments and suggestions can be sent to City Manager, Amy Sullivan at asullivan@hwmi.org or 248.581.2632.  The plan will be considered by the City Commission at their August 18th meeting.
