Parlor Talk: Francis Grunow

When: Wed., Jan. 10, 6 p.m. 2018

Just in time for the hordes of car aficionados, journalists, and industry people set to swarm the Motor City for the annual North American International Auto Show, Detroit's Urban Consulate poses the question: "What does Detroit lose when we prioritize cars over people?"The venue is hosting a Parlor Talk with urban policy wonk (and Marche du Nain Rouge mastermind) Francis Grunow, who will delve into Detroit's parking problem: namely, that "the combination of surface parking lots, and insufficient transportation alternatives, has created a downtown full of holes and gaps that undermine the walkability and density the city needs to compete globally."
