Reimagining the Region:
Building a New Detroit Metropolis

Approximately 205 citizens and community leaders came from Detroit and surrounding suburbs to the Emagine Royal Oak Theatre to view The New Metropolis and engage public officials in a dialogue.

A range of both suburban and urban civic, church, municipal organizations, legislators, university students, and seniors—black, white, and Hispanic— participated for the first time in a lively conversation about how regional collaboration was key.

Key themes covered were the similar challenges between Detroit and its older suburbs, as well as strategies to collaborate on key issues: overcoming the legacy of segregation, equity, housing, transportation sustainability and economic development.
