How do you create green space in one of the most industrial states in the U.S.? Tom Woiwode knows. As director of the Greenways Initiative, he’s raised more than $125 million to build and maintain trails, orchards and beautiful greenery throughout Southeastern Michigan. He’ll tell us how greening a city can help build community and civic engagement.
And Mary Sue Barrett of the Metropolitan Planning Organization tells us where she’d like to see the stimulus money go, and how spending regionally and not just state-by-state can pay bigger dividends.
Smart City is a syndicated, weekly hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life: the people, places, ideas and trends that affect us all. Host Carol Coletta, president and CEO of CEOs for Cities, talks with national and international public policy experts, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others on the pulse of city life for a penetrating discussion on urban issues.
