Unprecedented database for Detroit: The plan to catalog every "deteriorating or abandoned" building inspires hope for nonprofit Motor City Blight Busters.
"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. 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." -- Christine Ferretti, the Detroit News
