What Do You Do With Detroit? Bulldoze It  

Have you ever wondered what will become of Detroit?   Will the auto industry bounce back in enough time to save the real-estate market? Will artists flock to the cheap real estate and colonize the city? Or, will it go the way of that luxury condo building in downtown Orlando that's overwhelmed by vultures?

Well, Detroit’s mayor has an idea: Bulldoze it.

Mayor Dave Bing is apparently working on a radical plan that would bulldoze a quarter of the city — some of the most desolate areas — and return it to farmland, the way it was before the automobile. Any residents still there would be relocated to stronger neighborhoods.

This isn't a new idea — Detroit has been kicking it around since the 1990s, and some people suggest dozens of U.S. cities hard-hit by the recession may have to be bulldozed...

Those areas breed crime and make property values of surrounding neighborhoods go down. They should level them. I believe that Detroit will come back, it's a great city that has just been hit hard.

When the economy improves, people have more disposable income, investors will take a chance on Detroit.

Being a hardcore Michigander-I think It's a good idea. Detroit-parts of it-look like a warzone. A DEAD warzone. Bombed out cities at the end of WWII come to mind. No businesses-no livable homes-its dead. Take photos for posterity-and mow it over.
BUT.
The folks who DO live there better get put somewhere-help 'em out for 6 months-if they dont figure out how to live without living on drug dealing and such-f$ck em.
I know that sounds f#cked up-but the fact of the matter is-nobody with a real job lives there. AND if they do have real jobs-and are good people--they'll do better in a better economic freindly area.drug pushers and pimps-fug em.

You said it.  I remember going there in the early 90s and seeing burned out buildings - then realizing this was from the riots.  Ya know, the riots THIRTY YEARS EARLIER.  That should give some perspective on what parts of Detroit are like.

Probably the worst thing...  Detroit improved by a large margin over my lifetime in Michigan (I lived in Michigan 1983 to about 2002) - it got a lot safer (still fairly dangerous, just less so), schools improved in some places, etc.  Only for it to start to get worse all over again because of all the crap that's happened in the past 10 years.  Sad.
