Kelli Kavanaugh grabbed a moment with the President-elect at the Michigan Association of Planning conference, where he was speaking. He continued:
"Silver says the planning profession recognizes that urban renewal was a "bad mistake" and calls for his peers to return to their roots. "Social equity is the foundation of our profession: to protect public health, safety and welfare," he says. A planner's goals should be to design "livable cities, not just for the prosperous.""
Silver also talks about HOPE VI; visioning processes in Raleigh, NC, where he is the planning director; and encouraging immigration to Detroit.
