Mix Tape

Join a lively panel discussion exploring the future of Detroit's retail corridors and how to ease their revitalization through innovative zoning and land uses -- and stay for refreshments. Meet the three ambitious, multidisciplinary planning and design teams -- Farr Associates, Laavu, and SmithGroup JJR -- selected by the Planning Department to examine the City of Detroit’s land-use regulations and re-image them as a means to reactivating commercial corridors and promoting economic development.  This panel discussion highlights the process and lessons from lightening red tape -- the "Pink Zoning" project -- funded by the Knight Foundation. Come hear how the City plans to use these lessons to encourage the development of targeted commercial corridors through zoning changes, including such options as streamlining approval processes and introducing basic design standards.
