Project PlanShrinking

Flint, Michigan (USA)

Flint (112,000 inhabitants), is a single-industry based town which has suffered from economic decline triggered by layoffs in the auto industry (General Motors operates several plants in the city). In 2009 the city made media headlines with its downsizing and land banking strategy to tackle shrinkage in a way that is rather new for the US planning realm.
