No more links to Ohio publications, please.
In seriousness, though, I think that Kilpatrick's locality-focused plans are similar (i.e. downtown focus, planning for E. Riverfront/Capitol Park redevelopment, giving incentives to live in well-established neighborhoods). Detroit has to accept overall population losses. It's a huge city in a shrinking region. It has to focus on growing on a neighborhoods and districts, focusing on a few at a time. I think the best hope is making downtown and a few of the coolest neighborhoods near the core of the city so appealing there will be a mass influx that comes close to offsetting the losses in other areas.
