For a city with roughly 70,000 abandoned structures, Detroit's process of clearing blight has long been murky and somewhat inaccessible. Remember when the city accidentally demolished a dozen houses earlier this year? Not good. But there is hope! Thanks to Data Driven Detroit, there is now an interactive map of the city's demo activity, covering both planned demolitions and those that have taken place since 2010. It divides condemned properties into three categories: Those that are approved for demolition but lack funding, those in the midst of the 36-step demo process, and those that have been torn down and cleaned up. Check out the map for yourself and let us know what you think.
