Detroit Future City Provides Framework For Success

DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s an ambitious plan – to save the city of Detroit. The new project is providing a framework for the city to not just evolve but succeed.

It’s called Home-base – and the aptly named office on Russell Street, is where Detroit Future City spent Tuesday afternoon unveiling a multi-pronged plan for the city reports WWJ’s Kathryn Larson.

Hamilton & Associates Project Manager Dan Kinkead says project listened to the community’s concerns.

“We have 30,000 conversations, essentially having 70,000 survey responds,” said Kinkead.

With feedback, a team of planners, architects, urban landscapers and economists put Detroit under the lens to understand what Detroit needs to move forward.

Detroit Future City determines that over the next several decades the city will need more flexible zoning,  increased green spaces and small city systems of services to succeed.
