DFC has been working since its inception to demonstrate how this land has the potential to be transformed into an open space asset, thus establishing the city of Detroit as a leader in innovative open space land uses. We are calling this movement a “Green Culture Shift”.
Detroit has hundreds of vacant industrial sites that are not likely to be returned to industrial use. A DFC Implementation Office assessment indicates that there are almost 900 vacant industrial buildings spread across the city.
Spring is finally here! Now that the gardening season is in full swing, it is the perfect time to dust off your DFC Field Guide to Working with Lots and begin your lot transformation.
