From TIME.com: Regional Development Moving Forward
So how do you get people to move to Michigan? Once they’re here, how do you get them to stay? Does anyone “get it” around here?
Yup. There is a groundswell of activity toward these very goals. City administrators, development companies and non-profit business incubators are busy – trying to shed the past and get on with the future.
So how do you do it? You get advertising. You get creative with what you build. You push hard to attract new residents – and that draws new employers, retailers and more.
In other words, you don’t wait for “Detroit” to get better. You make it happen for yourself.
