The purpose of the Motor City Re-Store program is to improve the physical conditions of Detroit’s commercial corridors to make neighborhoods more attractive, more walkable, and better for business. 

It is the sole intent of this Registration Form to develop a list of service providers (Artists and Fabricators) who are interested and willing to respond to a formal Request for Qualifications (RFQ) in the near future. 

The RFQ will allow providers to participate in Motor City Re-Store and bid on construction of exterior improvements for up to 20 businesses each quarter awarded by the EDC (Economic Development Corporation of the City of Detroit) to receive design services.
