This is your Daily Detroit for Friday, March 2, 2018. We had a really long day on Thursday covering the Detroit Policy Conference, so we were a little slow on getting this episode out – that’s why we brought it to you from the back of the struggle bus this week.
Here’s what we’re covering, including interviews with Detroit Police Chief James Craig and Detroit Schools Superintendent Dr. Nikolai Vitti.
- The Auto Show might move to October from January
- Detroit’s police chief and Detroit’s school superintendent debate the place of guns in schools.
- The Packard plant is seeing signs of life.
- A restaurant incubator is opening up downtown
- A Big player in local Real Estate moves from Birmingham to downtown Detroit.
- Thanks to a foundation grant, Metro Detroit will get more playgrounds and skate parks
- And more than 700 of Detroit’s movers and shakers were at the Detroit Policy Conference today. We recap some of the themes and conversations from the floor of the soundboard at the Motor City Casino.
