How $$ Makes Detroit Go-Round
Join OLLI on this day trip which will begin at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago’s Detroit Branch. The bank tour will include a discussion of the Federal Reserve System and history, function, and unique aspects of the Detroit Branch. There will be a walking tour at the bank and an opportunity for a direct view into the Cash Department, which disburses currency to area banks. A narrated bus tour of downtown Detroit will follow. The tour will focus on revitalization and explanations about historic tax credits. Lunch will be at the Union Street Station Restaurant on Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Following lunch at the restaurant, there will be a presentation by a representative from Global Detroit, a non-profit corporation that revitalizes Michigan’s economy by pursuing strategies that strengthen Detroit’s connections to the world to make the region more attractive and welcoming to immigrants, internationals, and foreign trade and investment as a means to produce jobs and regional economic growth. The afternoon will wrap up with a bus tour highlighting the Cass Corridor revitalization efforts, with a focus on stadiums, housing, high-end restaurants, and future plans for the formerly blighted areas.
