Back to Belle

New, 43 comments

Tired of seeing Detroit's local newspapers write article after meaningless article about the DIA? You're in luck, as there are signs that Belle Isle might again take the throne as Detroit's signature Gem in Jeopardy. Emergency Manager/Book Cadillac resident Kevyn Orr recently mentioned that he's going to revisit the State of Michigan's proposed lease of the island, which the city council ignored back when they had the power to do so. At the time, the proposal promised to restore some of Belle's long lost luxuries, such as bathrooms and regularly-emptied trashcans. [Freep]
