Parlor Talk: Francis Grunow

Date: 
Wed, Jan 10, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

What does Detroit lose when we prioritize cars over people?

Detroit has a problem: The combination of numerous surface parking lots, and insufficient transportation alternatives, has created a downtown full of holes and gaps that undermine the walkability and density the city needs to compete globally.

Join us in the parlor with urbanist and public policymaker Francis Grunow for a conversation about the REAL costs of parking.
