Loveland is soliciting "inchvesters" to purchase inches in Detroit:

These microhoods will function as visitable park and garden spaces spread around the city and mirrored online. Once you inchvest in the project you're able to log into your land, fill out a profile, meet your new neighbors, and make plans for your space. What happens is an open-ended adventure, so expect surprises.
