Greening Vacant Properties

Wednesday, August 6, 2014, 2:00-3:30 Eastern Time

Many news headlines focus on plans to stabilize neighborhoods and commercial districts in Detroit that are stressed by high rates of vacancy. In many of these neighborhoods, the depressed real estate market does not permit traditional economic development, so local organizations need to be creative in repurposing vacant properties for different uses. This webinar focused on how several organizations are starting to convert vacant land into productive use in Detroit. Speakers discussed:


Who Should Attend
Planners; community leaders; state, local, and federal government staff; academics; researchers; and others interested in helping communities reuse vacant land
