In another amazing bureaucracy-busting move, the City of Detroit now says that you, the residents of the neighborhoods, can actually buy (for $100) the side lot or lot immediately adjacent to your house! So the massive amounts of vacant land will now be adopted and owned by the folks who have to see it every day! It will be mowed, cut, maintained, and/or maybe even farmed, gardened, or just used as open green space. This is huge. Thanks City!
