Detroit blight task force releasing plan

(WXYZ) - Survey teams spent more than a year documenting every real estate parcel in Detroit. 

That's 380,000 parcels that were documented. Once the data was analyzed, a blight elimination strategy was put together to address the city's blight problem.

The task force discovered there are a total of 84,641 blighted parcels in the City of Detroit.  Of those, 73,035 are residential structures, 6,135 are vacant lots that require clearing and 5,471 are non-residential structures.

The Blight Task Force believes all blight in Detroit can be removed in five years or less.  Price tag for blight removal is estimated to cost $850 million.
