On February 11, The Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program and Time Inc. hosted Reimagining Detroit: Making Washington a Partner in Detroit’s Next Economy at the College of Creative Studies in downtown Detroit.
Time magazine’s Assignment Detroit correspondent Steven Gray joined Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, John Austin, Brookings non-resident senior fellow; The Skillman Foundation President, Carol Goss; New Economy Initiative Chair Steve Hamp; for a discussion on invigorating the Washington/Detroit relationship, with an emphasis on connecting Detroit’s emerging economic development plan with help coming from Washington.
The event, drawing a crowd of over 250 people, provided a timely and open discussion on Detroit’s transition to the “next economy,” with a focus on federal policies that can better leverage economic transformational goals and strategies already under way in Detroit.
