Keith Schneider, deputy director of the Michigan Land Use Institute recently published an article, explaining the lessons the metropolitan Detroit area should learn from Denver’s recent, rapidly expanding public transportation projects.
The success of Denver’s new growth strategy—investing billions in its modern FasTracks public transit system—is a lesson in governance, economics, social values, and politics that southeast Michigan and most of the state’s other metropolitan regions must learn if they are to ever catch up in the global race for competitiveness. It requires a kind of dual regional psychology that understands the urgency of Michigan’s economic condition, but uses statesmanship and patience to improve it.
