- Many of us advocated against the awarding of millions of dollars in tax abatements to for profit real estate developers citing the need for a housing plan that realistically addressed the needs of Detroiters.
- This outcome is rooted in an economic development strategy pitched to everyday Detroiters by the administration and many on city council as a necessity for Detroit’s revitalization.
- In the midst of the global pandemic when many Detroit families are facing sky high rents and threats of eviction, these luxury units sit empty!
Hold our elected officials accountable for the wasteful and shortsighted use of our precious tax resources.
Detroit remains a tale of two cities – one where there are too many houses for high income earners and too few houses for the majority Black residents. Even in the midst of the century defining pandemic, more than 4,000 eviction cases have been filed in 36th District housing court and many families are self evicting lacking the resources to fight to stay.
No more tax support
for luxury living.
