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.
