The 2012 Detroit Strategic Framework articulates a shared vision for Detroit’s future, and recommends specific actions or reaching that future. The vision resulted from a 24-month-long public process that drew upon interactions among Detroit residents and civic leaders rom both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, who together formed a broad based group of community experts. From the results of this citywide public engagement effort, a team of technical experts crated and refined the vision, rendered specific strategies or reaching it, shared their work publicly at key points, and shaped it in response to evolving information and community feedback throughout the process.
It recommends a series of ideas, strategies and approaches on how to best use the city’s abundance of land, create job growth and economic prosperity, ensure vibrant neighborhoods, build an infrastructure that serves citizens at a reasonable cost, and maintain the high level of community engagement integral to the long-term revitalization of Detroit.
