CBA Ordinance Push – Call Today, Attend Committee Tmrw
When corporations and big business ask for public resources to make private profit it is only fair and just that residents be part of the process.
We can’t sustain giving away millions upon millions in public resources without fair exchange and direct benefits for residents. To become more equitable and fair to the community we must change the way we operate.
Real Community Benefits Agreements are negotiated by the community and the developer and are legally binding; just saying ‘I support community benefits’ will not change the current inequitable practices. The CBA Ordinance will guarantee all Detroiters access to opportunities.
