It’s always an interesting time in metro Detroit. But the recent past has been especially noteworthy: emergence out of the Great Recession, brushes with disaster for the Big Three, and a gut-wrenching bankruptcy process. People and businesses have come and gone — and come back again.
What does the future hold, and who’s going to mold it? We’ve divided our City Guide into major topics. Who We’re Watching: politicians, business moguls, and cultural and civic leaders. What We’re Fixing: city and neighborhood developments and fast-growing suburbs. When It’s Time to Play: favorite activities, indoors and out. Where We’re Eating: hot new restaurants in the city, suburbs, and beyond. Why Our Buildings Matter: saving what’s old and exploring what’s new. Along the way, we raise other topics including what neighborhoods need the most help, who are the metro area’s most influential bloggers, and the debates over the value of public art or fixing our roads?
