Here’s how we’re putting together the pieces for Detroit development tracker


For the last six months, Detour Detroit has worked to build the Detroit Development Tracker, a tool that will allow the public to monitor large property development, see changes in their neighborhoods and get more engaged with the development process. While it’s still very much a work in progress, we now have an initial version of the final product to refine.

In its final form, the tracker will be an easy-to-use website that works on mobile and desktop where users can look up particular developments or find them via the map view, and see details about use, ownership and status, as well as images. Each development page will also link to relevant city meetings where the projects are being discussed and voted on. The site will partially rely on crowdsourcing, allowing users to submit information, photos and questions about developments they see for reporters to verify.
