Conference looks to reclaim Flint

The city of Flint is hosting a conference this weekend which to look at ways to transform the city.

The Congress for Urban Transformation is bringing activists, artists, urban planners and others to Flint.   The conference is looking at a variety of ways to reclaim Flint, from urban agriculture to improved city planning.

Rob McCullough is the local program coordinator. He says they are looking at new ways to reclaim Flint’s industrial sites and hard hit neighborhoods.

“Ways that it can be done that led to sustainability. And also avoid, to a degree, gentrification,” says McCullough.

The conference wraps up on Sunday.
