300 Block East Grand River Avenue, Howell, Michigan - 1984


This photograph is of the southside of the 300 block of East Grand River Avenue, Howell, Michigan and was taken as part of documentation for the R/UDAT Study, 1984.  This photograph is of the Walking Tour, and shows the storefronts on the 300 block including John Howell Towing Service/Sunoco, Howell Auto Parts, Skip's Hair Place, Howell Theater, the Midget Sandwich Shop and the Offices of the Livingston County Press.  The names of the persons in the photograph are unknown.

In 1983, the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce applied for a R/UDAT (Regional/Urban Design Assistance Team) study, an American Institute of Architects program that brought a team of professionals to the city for a four-day period to study Howell's downtown, its ability to compete for regional shopping, and to make recommendations for improvements to re-vitalize the city.  The team, in 1984, during the study took photographs, interviewed people, held forums, and in the end provided an outline of strategies.
