Norquist spearheaded campaigns for highway removal, better housing policy and walkable communities.

S.John Norquist, the influential and outspoken President and CEO of the Congress for the New Urbanism, has announced that he will step down from his position after the 22nd Annual Congress in Buffalo in 2014. Norquist's career at CNU spanned the boom and bust of the housing industry, and he has been critical to maintaining and strengthening the organization. Norquist initiated the establishment of CNU chapters in the US and Canada and has built partnerships with public, private and non-profit organizations that have helped CNU grow to over 2500 members.

Detroit and the Bankruptcy.

The city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy on July 18, 2013. It is the largest municipal bankruptcy filing in U.S. history by debt, estimated to be $18–20 billion.
Detroit is also the largest city by population in the U.S. history to file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, more than twice as large as Stockton, California, which filed in 2012.

Detroit’s population has declined from a peak of 1.8 million in 1950; recently, the New York Times called the city “home to 700,000 people, as well as to tens of thousands of abandoned buildings, vacant lots and unlit streets.
