WHY CHANGE? Most Detroiters feel strongly that we need to change, but what really happens if we don’t? What happens, for example, if we continue to lose 80,000 people in the next decade? Find out during the next round of meetings with the Detroit Works Project.
Come see what’s impacting neighborhoods across the city and give us ideas and information on what you’re already doing to make Detroit work. And, we’ll begin to give you some of the thoughts being discussed to help get us moving in the right direction – both short and long term.
If we all understand the issues and act together we can find the answers for the city.
The conversation topics will be the same for each meeting. Please join the session that’s closest and most convenient for you.
