Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan has an expensive wish list for improving the city over the next five years. Earlier this month, Mayor Duggan announced and outlined his $2.45 billion capital plan for the city, which includes increased services for residents, the redevelopment of city-owned parks and properties, and upgrades to the city’s aging infrastructure. Compared to Duggan’s 2020 capital agenda, spending has increased by nearly $599 million. Investments in open space and recreation across the city have nearly quadrupled in Duggan’s latest plans.

Duggan’s plans for the city aren’t set in stone completely, however. Detroit City Council members have until March 1, 2023 to review, amend and vote on the plan. If approved, much of the funding will come from Detroit’s allocation of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. One Detroit Producer Will Glover gets an update from BridgeDetroit reporter Malachi Barrett, who’s been closely following the capital agenda Mayor Duggan has proposed.
