Detroit, Michigan is now home to an intriguing new project called LOVELAND. It is an effort by an internationally renown and recognized mixed media specialist Jerry Paffendorf, formerly of the Accelerated Studies Foundation.
LOVELAND is an exercise in community and real estate development. The project is selling off Detroit Real Estate one inch at a time, and leveraging those funds for reinvestment into the development of the land. What is unique is the cooperative nature required to execute such a plan when each square inch is independently owned. Although a micro poject it could provide a new model for community development and engagmeent.
