Civic engagement, the open and ongoing two-way dialogue among all stakeholders, is critical to Detroit Future City’s mission – to advance the transformation of Detroit.
During the Detroit Future City planning process, Detroiters jointly shaped the development of the DFC Strategic Framework through the involvement of a broad range of participants. Civic engagement has played a significant role in the formation of the DFC Implementation Office’s priorities, projects and initiatives to stabilize and ultimately transform the city of Detroit. As the DFC Implementation Office works to bring the framework to life, participatory implementation is about catalyzing the actions of a broad range of stakeholders across sectors and geographies to work collectively to improve the quality of life for all Detroiters.
