How Brightmoor Talks About Blight: Detroit Agenda

January 10, 2014


When WDET launched the Detroit Agenda project, we spoke with residents about what they say are the most serious issues the city faces. Blight was among the most popular responses.

A noted hot bed for illegal garbage dumping, scrapping, and arson Brightmoor is thought to be one of the city’s neighborhoods that's been hit harder than most by chronic blight.

Vickey Carter is a mother of two who lives and works in Brightmoor. She tells WDET’s Travis Wright that blight is a common topic of conversation where she lives.



WDET’s news team took to the streets to talk to hundreds of Detroiters about their neighborhoods – asking what they wanted for their communities – and what needs to change. Learn more about The Detroit Agenda here.
