Mayor Duggan blight-free Detroit neighborhoods by 2024
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is asking voters to support a $200 million plan next spring to wipe out the city’s abandoned by the end of 2024.
Duggan plan was announced during his keynote address at the annual Mackinac Policy Conference Thursday morning on Mackinac Island.
His plan is to take down 4,000 houses a year, and by the end of 2024, there will not be a single abandoned house in the city of Detroit.
The city will only be asking voters to support the authority to borrow from its existing bonding capacity.
The city has other sources of funding for blight said Duggan, included in Detroit’s bankruptcy plan but the $200 million bond, if approved, would “get the remaining 18,000 blighted residential structures taken down.
The bond proposal would require approval of the Detroit’s city council to go on the ballot.
It would likely be paid over 20 or 30 years.
Duggan is hoping to have the issue appear on the March 2020 presidential election ballot.
