Clean Up Detroit's Blight? You'll Need $2B, Report Says

by Wochit 0:38 mins

The 341-page report says Detroit suffers from 84,641 blighted structures and vacant lots, and about 40,000 needed to be demolished and cleaned up immediately because of their condition. The report said, totally ridding Detroit of blight could cost up to $2 billion. Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr has estimated that the city's bankruptcy plan will free up about $420 million to spend on blight removal in coming years.
