Detroit Blight Authority

Monday, June 10, 2013

Bill Polte, Chairman, and Brian Farkas, Executive Director of Detroit Blight Authority talk with Craig about the status of the city. The Blight Authorityis endeavoring to end blight in the city by reducing deconstruction costs by working in large tracts.

Ten blocks of blight were removed in one ten day rush previously. The blight program is clearing entire blocks rather than targeting individual properties while ignoring adjacent blighted property. The authority is not concerned with aggregating land but with removing the blight at all costs to make neighborhoods safer.
