Here's another interesting resource on my hometown related to land use and development issues: an interactive map from the NYT on how Detroit might shrink to concentrate the limited demand and services that the city faces.
It's beginning to appear more and more likely that Detroit is shaping up to be the living land use lab for all types of different ideas going into the future. That may actually end up being a good thing if it produces a new model(s) for effectively contracting municipal boundaries in an orderly way.
