Detroit Works Project

Detroit services to depend on neighborhood condition. More stable areas to be treated differently than distressed ones. (Detroit News, 7/28/2011)

Excerpt:   It calls for dividing Detroit into three categories based on a neighborhood's health — steady, transitional and distressed — and concentrating certain services in those areas. For example, building demolitions would be more common in "distressed" and "transitional" areas, while healthier "steady" neighborhoods would get more code enforcement and illegal dumping cleanups. The new deployment of city services will take effect in two weeks.

Maybe it's too many Elmore Leonard novels but I want to carry a gun if I'm forced to go to Detroit.

Speaking of which, the only reason I would go to Detroit would be for a conference. I'm sure Detroit tourism works to attract conferences but I doubt they get many.
