Michigan Blight Removal Project Begins in Detroit

Posted: Updated:

The fight against blight is beginning in Michigan's Motor City.

Governor Snyder and Michigan Senator Carl Levin were in Detroit Monday to launch a $100-million blight removal project.

It will start with taking down abandoned homes on the city's west side.

The Detroit News says this is the largest residential blight removal in state history.

The Federal project will be used to clear out areas in Flint, Saginaw, Pontiac, and Grand Rapids. Some money will be held in reserve for the future.
