Urban planning longform

Thank you for the May issue of Downtown. It is certainly up to the high standards you have set in the past. 

I especially want to thank Lisa Brody for her longform article on urban planning.  She gave us a lot to consider, especially the impact of zoning on diversity.  We can and need to do better.

Thanks for such an honorable publication.

DOWNTOWN: Unrivaled journalism worthy of reader support

A decade ago we assembled a small but experienced and passionate group of publishing professionals all committed to producing an independent newsmagazine befitting the Birmingham/Bloomfield area that, as we like to say, has long defined the best of Oakland County. 


We provide a quality monthly news product unrivaled in this part of Oakland. For most in the local communities, we have arrived at your doorstep at no charge and we would like to keep it that way, so your support is important.


Check out our publisher’s letter to the community here.
