Urbanism: Lessons Learned Giving Residents Whiteboards

New, 2 comments

With all the people that have left Detroit in the last few decades, the Great Lakes Urban Exchange (GLUE) wanted to ask what would make them stay. So last May they took photos of residents with whiteboards that filled in the phrase, "I will stay if..." With public transit appearing more than anything else and still several years off, let's hope those demands did not have urgent deadlines. Other items? One of the co-fouders of the Tashmoo Biergarten asked for a bar (check! kinda?), while others wanted more bike lanes (coming!), and better schools (uh oh). There are 81 photos posted online at the GLUE site.
