Detroit Future City is a model by which the city could be re-imagined, where and how to concentrate resources and investment to make the city livable and attractive for new residents.

But that also means there are pockets and places in Detroit that would receive less attention, and that’s a problem the city is already combating with vacant buildings and neighborhood blocks.

What becomes of the many vacant sites, especially industrial sites that take up a lot of room and create a lot of blight?

Detroit Future City is focusing this week on the future of those industrial sites, while at the Mackinac Policy Conference.

Anika Goss Foster joins Detroit Today host Stephen Henderson to talk about DFC’s vision for the city.
