A lot happened in October in Detroit. First, the City settled federal lawsuits brought against the police department that alleged police used excessive force on demonstrators marching against police brutality in the wake of George Floyd’s death in 202o.
Then, the City called for residents’ input in a $57.6 million plan to help flood recovery efforts and minimize future incidents. Plus, the Detroit nonprofit Citizen Robotics started building the City’s first 3D-printed home in its Southwest Detroit warehouse.
Checking in on all the action, One Detroit producer Will Glover sits down with BridgeDetroit reporter Bryce Huffman to talk about the latest news. They discuss the $1 million settlement the anti-police brutality organization Detroit Will Breathe received on behalf of plaintiffs, how the city plans to spend the $57.6 million earmarked for flood recovery, and how the 3D-printed home is bringing innovation into the Islandview neighborhood.
