Getting to Know Decaying Detroit, Parcel-by-Parcel
"A new blight task force is starting its fight by developing the most extensive property database of deteriorating or abandoned structures in Detroit’s history," reports Christine Ferretti. "The effort, coordinated by Data Driven Detroit, is expected this week to begin training survey teams that in December will begin parcel-by-parcel assessments in the city’s 'hardest hit' fund areas, says Erica Raleigh, acting director of Data Driven Detroit."
“It’s unprecedented,” Raleigh said. “We’re going to leave some incredible information for the city and ability to update that over time.”
