City of Detroit Department of Neighborhoods

Detroit’s Official Website describes the purpose of the Department of Neighborhoods District team as having “been charged with the task of eliminating blight in their district and will be your partners in making that happen.  They will do this by working closely with neighborhood and other community organizations, CDCs, faith-based organizations and local businesses to identify and prioritize your concerns, and then coordinate with the appropriate City department to deliver results.  They will help you to address all blight-related issues, including dangerous building demolition, repurposing vacant lots and structurally sound vacant buildings, as well as non-structural blight.”
