Everyone already knows the city council needs wiped with a clean slate because of all the corruption and, bigotry amongst them. Then I would appoint members made up of representatives from all different communities... More

Maybe it's the teacher in me, but first and foremost, I'd fix the public school system. The teachers need to have the support, supplies, resources, and pay they deserve. The students need to have a safe, clean place of learning, that will prepare them for success in the "real world". Eh, we can wish, right?

Bring in more casinos and make it a small Atlantic City or Vegas. Alot more jobs and increase in tourism. Imagine all the new hotels and restaurants that would be needed. And with Comerica, JLA, and Ford Field, it would be a place that people would want to come to.

I'd change the person in charge. I'm no more qualified than the yahoos that are currently running the place.

I would say un-annex. Give back all the area that Detroit took from the original townships, essentially turning Detroit into a bunch of smaller, easier to manage cities.And make sure that the Detroit school district gets split up along with it. I know crazy!

Just to start I would contract the City. Pick an area and build small affordable housing and apartments , then take the areas in the worst shape and remove all the houses ,streets and power lines letting nature take it back or farm it. a more compact city would be cheaper to run and as things get better people will...

Well I wouldn't want to live in Detroit, nor it's suburbs. Though I think the suburbs can somehow try to fade the negative image of Detroit metro by forming a larger positive city right next door. Basically, I think if a group of Detroit suburbs were to become one large city, it could possibly be one of the largest... More
