I’m very excited and proud to have a paper on published on the Michigan Policy Network website.  In it, I discuss yet another policy tool that Flint and the Genesee County Land Bank Authority could use to stabilize and revitalize a neighborhood – tapping into creative entrepreneurs for a little cultural economic development.  By no means is it a cure-all, but it could certainly help and Flint/Genesee have all of the right assets.

Thanks to Dr. Reckhow for her help, and thanks to Dr. Grossmann and his group at MPN for uploading it to the site (and congrats on the new baby!!!).  If you’d like to read the paper, click the link below:
