Video: Vacant Not Blighted: Revitalizing Detroit

This 4:12 video by the Michigan Historic Preservation Network shows that preservation and rehabilitation are much more effective than demolition to address “blight” in Detroit. The video was created in Mindfield and features a host of interesting people across the city working on rehab projects from firehouses to garages, homes to schools.  Thanks to Jay Vogt for telling me about this video.

    If I were young(er) and not tied down, I’d head for Detroit. Such opportunities to make a difference there. It’s rather like the “wild west” of olden days.
