CitizenDetroit Dinner & Dialogue
April 22 2015 at 5:00 PM
International Institute of Metropolitan Detroit
Our city has recently completed a remarkable trip through bankruptcy.  While a number of crippling financial challenges have been resolved, the real work of improving services to residents has just begun. The Plan of Adjustment approved by the court provides a road map for the next 10 years.  The Plan includes initiatives to increase city government revenues and improve the operations of city departments that will make the city government work more effectively.  But implementing the plan is the responsibility of our elected mayor and city council. This CitizenDetroit Dinner & Dialogue is your opportunity to learn more about the plan and share ideas with your neighbors about how to measure improvements in city services. It is important to the future of our city that your voice is heard.  We hope you will take part in our interactive session after enjoying a delicious dinner. City of Detroit residents and voters - REGISTER TODAY and join Dr. Irvin D. Reid and Sheila Cockrel for one of the upcoming CitizenDetroit Dinner and Dialogue event sessions.  Admission if free, but reservations are required.  To attend RSVP by April 17 online or call (313) 577-5550.   This program is presented by the Eugene Applebaum Chair in Community Engagement and the Forum on Contemporary Issues in Society (FOCIS) at Wayne State University.  The CitizenDetroit project is made possible through the generosity of alumnus Eugene Applebaum, The Kresge Foundation and The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
