A crash course in changing the world.
DETROIT RECOVERY PLAN (Evocation)
The city of Detroit is facing a number of challenges. The city has a very high unemployment rate. Detroit has lost a lot of its population and thus its tax base has been seriously depleted. The public school system is in a shambles. Other big city problems such as crime, drugs etc., also exist. While the situation appears bleak, if not hopeless, there exists a possibility for the implementation of an Evoke which would address many of the above problems.
Outcomes from this Evocation.
Re-establish as many single proprietorship business’s as possible, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, bicycle repair shops etc.
Eliminating all national bank branches in the neighborhoods leaving the national
banks to work only with their industrial customers. The banks would be replaced
with community banks.
Institute a think tank that focusing on technical and social innovation.
Create an alternative housing industry that will specialize on creative housing
solutions for the homeless as well as affordable student housing.
Institute a city wide food program that will reduce Detroit’s reliance on outside food
The Evoke Team.
Implementation for the Evocation

In addition, the Building expert will also work with Detroit schools vocational program in order to start producing tiny homes.
During the summer break students will be recruited as Evoke trainees. (for fall and winter semesters.)
The H/P will work with Wayne county services for selection of produce to be grown in the community gardens.

The Business lead will work with the remaining Detroit business’s on setting up franchise training.
A new company will re-purpose old rail cars that will be turned into mobile grocery stores. Other cars will be converted to duplex apartments used for housing the homeless and also affordable student housing. This company will also be in charge of R&D of the Hexayurt project. The company will also produce tiny homes as well.
Detroit Public Schools will work in conjunction with Michigan State University in the implementation of the Evoke training. Serious Gaming methodology will be used.
Detroit City Council will work on reducing the barriers discouraging companies from establishing a presence in the city.
The mobile stores will give way to permanent local stores
With increased tax revenue Detroit will improve its public transportation.
Much of the agriculture will be moved to the river allowing for new construction.
It is not the intent of this Evocation to vie for any grant money. I would much prefer the start up money to go to an agent located in an area where the money will go further.
