Curious about ways to improve Detroit?
Much has been made of Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again.” (or otherwise known as “MAGA”) Whether or not you like the President, it’s tough to argue that his election slogan caught onto the majority of the public. (It definitely did not “slip through the cracks.”)
As of late, Detroit has been getting increasingly better headlines, but if we’re being honest, it still has a long way to go. It has lots of potential, which is good for investors. However, it still has plenty of improvement to make, to say the least. Honestly, that too, is good for investors.
An article in the Detroit News made a few suggestions about things that would really build a better future for Detroit… a.k.a. Making Detroit Great Again (MDGA?).
Here are a few of the ideas the author shared:
1. Find Ways to Get People to Move (back) into the City
2. Redevelop Vacant Land
3. Improve Existing Neighborhoods
4. Repair/Improve City Infrastructure
5. Use Tax Abatements to Attract New Businesses/Employers
