Help the community by answering this question:


I am part of a vacant property coalition that helps community groups and individuals keep control of vacant properties in their neighborhood. We have a direct line to the city of Detroit and BSE Dept and can assist in getting attention to city owned properties that need attention.

I am open to discuss further and share programs I put together to help individuals and community groups acquire and maintain vacant property.
