The Detroit Land Bank Authority
The Detroit Land Bank Authority (DLBA) and the City of Detroit Building Authority are working in partnership to eliminate blight in Detroit in order to stabilize neighborhoods and improve quality of life for local residents. Brightmoor is among the many communities that benefit from the DLBA’s blight removal efforts.
The Foundation believes that blighted and abandoned neighborhood buildings have a severe and profound impact on local residents, particularly children. In partnering with the DLBA, the Foundation hopes to support local children and families by investing in cleaner and safer neighborhoods.
Brightmoor Blight Removal Project: supporting the removal of approximately 45 buildings throughout Brightmoor, particularly structures surrounding Gompers Elementary School.
