About the Coalition
The Detroit Historic Neighborhoods Coalition was founded in 1999 as
an umbrella organization for the many historic neighborhoods in Detroit.
These historic neighborhoods comprise about 9,000 households and 30,000
The Coalition represents the interests of these neighborhoods to City
and State government departments and officials. The Coalition also assists
in bringing united action to maintain, preserve, and rehabilitate those
neighborhoods. The Coalition is a non-profit corporation.
The Interview Process
The Coalition wrote to every 2001 candidate who filed with the Detroit
City Clerk by the filing deadline and invited them to participate. Each

scheduled with each candidate who responded. The Coalition assessed a fee
of $50 to cover publication expenses.
