YES! CBA Ordinance!
The Community Benefits Agreement Ordinance will benefit Developers, Investors and life-long, returning and new residents by streamlining a community engagement process and increasing transparency and consistency.

The CBA Ordinance will amend the City Charter and will support meaningful community engagement and benefit into post-bankruptcy Detroit’s future.

READ: This recent Crain’s Business Detroit article by Ken Harris, president and CEO of the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce, supporting the CBA Ordinance:

“Community Benefits Agreements would boost neighborhoods, small businesses. More than 82.7 percent African-Americans and 32,490 black-owned businesses, have largely been ignored for any economic opportunities, resources and benefits.”

 Reasons to Support the Community Benefits Agreement Ordinance

  •     3000 Detroiters have signed the petition calling for a strong and enforceable Community Benefit Agreement ordinance and the number of signatures is growing.
  •     Detroiters deserve the type of economic development where all Detroiters benefit not just a few wealthy individuals and big corporations.
  •     When our tax dollars and public lands are used to benefit private investments, Detroiters deserve a strong and enforceable Community Benefit Agreement ordinance on the books to protect our interest.
