Homeowner Workshops

Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick and the Detroit Home- ownership Preserv- ation Enterprise will partner to host two workshops to provide current homeowners and future homebuyers with information to make homeownership easier in the NEXT Detroit.

The first Detroit Neighborhood Homeownership Workshop, and the one closest to the Warrendale neighborhood, will happen on Tuesday, June 26 at the Northwest Activities Center (18100 Meyers) from 2-7 p.m. A second one will take place on Thursday June 28 at the Samaritan Center (5555 Conner) from 2-7 p.m.

Counselors will be present to answer questions about:
  • Financial and Credit Management;
  • Predatory Lending;
  • Foreclosure Prevention;
  • Home Preservation;
  • Renter/Landlord Rights and Responsibilities; and
  • Taxes and Insurance.
They will also give tips about being a first time homebuyer. Homes available for purchase in the city of Detroit will also be featured during these workshops. Each workshop is free and open to any resident interested in becoming more financially savvy.

Refreshments will be served. There is no charge for parking and there will be prize drawings.

In 5 years they'll be dumps.

Any takers?

A boomba at Chicks. Your going to
loose Frank. Stop betting with your heart instead of your head.
Those new houses on Tireman just
west of greenfield while not dumps
(yet) are already looking a little shabby. Give it a few more
years. You'll see the furniture
on the curb and the boards on the
windows. I just have two more
words to say. Herman Gardens.

You're on.

I see Bills Auto Glass at Warren
and Piedmont has a new air
conditioning system. Just knock
out the front window and leave it
like that for a few days so the
hookers can get in there and
shoot their veins full of heroin
or smoke the pipe. Frank, your
going down.

Taunting gets you nowhere.

Not taunting Frank. Just the facts

Hard to tell weather the blight

is moving from the Avenue to

residental or vice-versa.

Keep hope alive frank. While it is probable for new developments to fall to the wayside, there's always the potential for the slums to be turned around. It takes a lot more than initial classes/programs for these neighborhoods to be successful, though. That's what fuels the facts and beliefs similar to those of anonymous.
