Today’s guest is journalist Brian Allnutt, whose reporting for Planet Detroit about Detroit’s Jefferson Chalmers area and specifically the canal district has not only gotten attention, but set out the issues well for the historic and unique area known as “The Venice of Detroit.”

But in Jefferson Chalmers, climate gentrification could mean that those with the resources to manage the risks and expense of living in a floodplain may replace those without them.”
