Detroit Public Schools To Give 57 Vacant Buildings to the City

New, 10 comments

The deeply in debt Detroit Public School system (DPS) has been doing a terrible job of managing their closed buildings. Frequently tagged and scrapped and poorly secured, many are in terrible shape; some are not salvageable. A new plan will transfer 57 schools and 20 vacant lots that DPS owns over to the City of Detroit, which hopefully can get a better handle on maintating them and, dear god, maybe also getting some of them developed at some point.
