What is LP50's Mission + Vision?

LP50: Diversity by Design

LP50 Mission Statement:
To continue sustaining and celebrating our neighborhood’s rich diversity, heritage, and beauty through inclusive and proactive resident-driven initiatives.

Vision for LP50:
LP50 will be a neighborhood of choice where residents of all ages, ethnicities, lifestyles, and economic status – inspired by our core values of diversity, beauty, and stability – are actively engaged in improving quality of life for all. We envision an urban neighborhood where our beautiful and inspiring environment, created through collaboration and innovative design and sustained through our common stewardship, is both honored and enhanced.

LP50 will carry out this Vision by:
1 Coordinating and leveraging resources among LP50 residential groups;
2 Emphasizing, enhancing, and promoting the significance of our social, natural, and architectural heritage;
3 Planning and supporting events that utilize neighborhood assets and foster community spirit.

LP50 is a volunteer, community-based organization serving the 5,000 some residents of the Lafayette Park Detroit National Register Historic District and vicinity. In April 2006, community members from a dozen residential groups - including The Pavilion, Mies van der Rohe Townhouses, 1300 Lafayette East, Lafayette Towers, Cherboneau Place Coops, Chateaufort, Parc Lafayette, Leland Lofts, Orleans East, et al - founded LP50 to plan and implement the 50th anniversary celebration.

In 2006, LP50 established five Sub-Committees to focus on different initiatives that support the anniversary celebration and on-going community
activities. On-going LP50 Initiatives include:
Historic home tours, a video documentary and oral history project, a community exchange center and merchandise sales, public art and landscape advocacy initiatives, archive project with WP Reuther Archives, among other projects and programs.

LP50 initiatives are designed to be broad and inclusive, and geared to all age groups – all events will feature activities for children, youth, and adults.
