Dr. David Fike joined Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan at an April 9th press conference to unveil a neighborhood rebuilding program. The first phase of this effort will target blight in the neighborhood near the Marygrove College campus. Last December, the College hosted a federal task force on blight, which recently completed a survey of blighted and abandoned homes and buildings in Detroit.
