Shrinking Flint?

Today’s New York Times has a story about a proposal to close off parts of the city of Flint, Mich. in order to focus on saving what can still be saved. “The population would be condensed into a few viable areas,” the article explains. “So would stores and services. A city built to manufacture cars would be returned in large measure to the forest primeval.”

I’m really surprised this article didn’t mention Youngstown’s planned shrinkage.

    So, what will the city do? Move people arround? What if someone wants to stay behind? That just sounds stupid. On the other hand, making city more people friendly (instead car/business friendly) is a good idea, but it has to happen organicaly to be succesfull.
