Flint has a number of large foundations, with over $5 billion in combined assets, committed to helping the local population by maintaining the city’s diverse cultural institutions. It has major
educational institutions. It has an excess of vacant urban land. It has well-connected highway and rail infrastructure. It is in the center of Michigan, the second most agriculturally diverse state in the nation, whose agro-industry generates $60 billion for the state economy. Flint’s future social, economic and cultural assets lie in its agricultural potential and the recycling of postindustrial wasteland into productive landscapes. A future
Flint will naturally develop along its agricultural production and transportation infrastructure.
