If you have driven through Detroit then you are well aware of one of the city’s major issues, thousands of vacant and blighted houses. According to The Detroit News, more than 1 in 3 Detroit properties have been foreclosed. Most of these homes were never re-occupied, leaving desolate blocks and crime infested streets. In an effort to start the process to rebuild Detroit, the mayor sought state and federal grants to demolish the dilapidated houses and give these neighborhoods a fresh start.
