What they're saying about Ilitch arena plans
<![CDATA["You can't help but believe this is the single most exciting and optimistic time for the Woodward corridor and all of downtown Detroit." -- Dan Gilbert, founder and Chairman, Quicken Loans "For six decades, Mike and Marian Ilitch have invested in the city of Detroit. Chris Ilitch is carrying that family tradition forward, and their genuine commitment has inspired new leaders to invest here, too." -- Daniel Loepp, president and CEO, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan "From the edge of downtown, at the highway, you've got a gap of some space before you get to Wayne State, where you get all that innovation going that way. This will be a great connector between those two areas. And then you add M-1 on top of it and everything else, and it is very exciting." -- Gov. Rick Snyder "If this is done in a way that includes Detroiters, I think it'll be very successful." -- Mayor Mike Duggan "Next year the schools will look the same, the roads will look the same, the city will be doing the same way, Mike Ilitch will be building a stadium with the state's money." -- Jerry Belanger, Park Bar owner
