NEXT Detroit: Clean Downtown

I was downtown for the annoucement about the Book-Cadillac Hotel's redevelopment. After it was done, I noticed all of the people who were cleaning up around downtown. Litter was being picked up. Bus stops were being power-washed.

I was thrilled to see so many people working to keep downtown Detroit clean. The kind of image of downtown for visitors has an impact on all of Detroit, including the Warrendale neighborhood. I'm grateful to Roger Penske, the Downtown Detroit Partnership and everyone who helped make Clean Downtown a reality.

However, with all of that cleaning going on, I can't help but wonder what we can do keep our parks from looking like this all of the time...

Or to deal with stuff like this getting dumped in our neighbor in the dead of night...
