A forward-thinking housing project in Ann Arbor is closer to reality.  The Board of Commissioners this week agreed, in principle, to sell a county-owned parcel of land on Platt Rd. for a development to be known as, "Verdian at County Farm."   WEMU's David Fair delves inside the project with the the driving force behind the project, Matt Grocoff, principal at Thrive Collaborative. 

In this week's installment of Issues of the Environment, WEMU's David Fair talks with Susan Pollay about development in downtown Ann Arbor and how it fits into a more sustainable future for the city. Susan Pollay is Executive Director of the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority.
