Report 71

The Detroit Metropolitan Area

Public opinion is considering the feasibility of creating a metropolitan district or districts to include Detroit and neighboring cities and villages. This proposal has been advanced with one principal thought, – to secure a governmental area or areas large enough to undertake certain projects that cannot be undertaken satisfactorily by the cities and villages individually. The government of such a metropolitan district or districts would be distinct from the governments of the included cities and villages, and the area would be sufficiently large to permit the orderly development of water supply, rapid transit, sewerage, port facilities, and also possibly to deal with health, education, and police.
