On today’s show:
Our feature conversation is a deep dive into the proposed $250 million demolition bond that was denied by Detroit City Council this week. What was it? Why did it fail? And what’s next?
We chatted with Chase Cantrell from Building Community Value. The organization is on the ground providing tools to help Detroiters rebuild their city. You can find out more about them and sign up for their classes here: http://www.bcvdetroit.org/
Also around the region:
A new scorecard is out for LGBTQ support in various cities around town from the Human Rights Campaign. Some scored well and some very much did not.
There are layoffs in Taylor at a sugar refinery.
And, the historic Detroit Saturday Night building in downtown Detroit is coming down. So we get another 12 parking spaces on a surface parking lot. Here are photos from yesterday.
