This animation started after reviewing data collected in the initial Detroit Works town hall meetings. The idea was simple: experts are asking for input on complex issues and Detroiters need a straightforward explanation of the problem that makes sense if you aren’t an urban planner. The goal of this animation is to provide citizens with enough background information to begin to tackle these conversations.
