Check this out: Sierra Detroit’s “Green” Water Tour
This is actually a cool tour it highlights some of the obscure unknowns about Detroit’s water and runoff departments. And how the city is developing new-world water technologies.
It’s led by Melissa Damaschke, a Sierra Club presenter, volunteer and blogger. The Green Water Infrastructure Tour is a 12-Mile ride that spots on some 10 locations around the city, it includes the old-world water run-off brick work in the historic Green Alley, The Green Roofs at the Wayne State University, the apartments on E.Garfield with it’s newly installed hidden 134,000 gallon retention drain system and it’s cost saving water heaters, and a more!
This tour’s cool because it’s full of cool hidden gems and money saving ideals for businesses and home owners, that and the tech information is thought provoking.
Tip: There’s another tour coming up on Sunday, May 5th

Cleveland’s Bus Rapid transit system uses bendy stretch-limo like buses that are flexible for turns and can hold up to 100 riders. Public asked to weight in on the big bus rapid transit.
Streetcars will return to Woodward Avenue in Detroit with construction of a 3.3-mile rail line expected to begin this summer from Hart Plaza on the riverfront to the New Center area. What about the rest of the 27-mile span to Pontiac?
The transformation of Woodward Avenue is under way and Michigan’s SEMCOG is calling all local citizens to get involved to help make Woodward positive and attractive real estate. The public will have multiple chances to weigh in at the 20 local meetings scheduled this month starting April 17 in Ferndale.
“Woodward is more than cars. It makes cities competitive. It attracts business,” said WA3 Director Heather Carmona. “What’s needed to make Woodward more functional? That’s what we want to find out.”
The WA3 by itself received a $752,000 in federal highway grant money to come up with a Complete Streets Master Plan to improve mobility and safety along the Woodward corridor for everyone, including pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and transit riders.
Consultants will oversee the events starting April 17-19 at St. James Catholic Church in Ferndale, with an emphasis on north Detroit and Ferndale. The events start at 9am every day and go until 8pm April 17-18 and 5 p.m. April 19. No registration is required.

If you’ve been wanting for more from the Woodward Avenue and have a thing or two to say about it, this is your chance to be heard! Every voice counts.
