Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is applauded by City Council members before delivering his first State of the City address.
First State of the City since
bankruptcy promises change

Using $20 million in
escrow, Detroit will
demolish over70,000
vacant homes
DETROIT (AP) - De-
troit Mayor Mike Duggan said
Wednesday that "strategic de-
molition" of some fire-damaged
vacant homes will begin within
30 days.
The announcement came at
the start of Duggan's first State
of the City address and the first
such speech since Detroit was al-
lowed to enter bankruptcy. Dug-
gan said his administration and
the City Council are both work-
ing to improve the city.
"The change has started and
the change in Detroit is real," he
said.
Duggan said the demolition
will be paid for using $20 million
in an unused escrow fund ear-
marked for burned houses.
"If you drive through most of
the neighborhoods today, you
wouldn't know there was a na-

tional recovery," Duggan said in
his Wednesday evening address.
"People in this community see
parts of the country doing well
and even parts of the city doing
well and others are left behind.'
Duggan, a former medical cen-
ter chief, was elected in Novem-
ber. His power is restricted while
Detroit remains under state over-
sight, but blight removal and de-
molition of what could be 70,000
or more vacant houses and other
buildings are under his control.
Detroit is going through the
largest municipal bankruptcy in
U.S. history, and Duggan's ad-
dress came less than a week af-
ter state-appointed emergency
manager Kevyn Orr filed his plan
to pay creditors while providing
money for city services and im-
provements in the coming years.
Under a deal with Orr, Duggan
has charge over financial matters
relating to day-to-day functions
of city government. But most of
the power once exclusive to the
mayor's office now resides with
Orr, who has complete control
over all city finances, how much
is spent and what the money is
spent on.

Orr's blueprint for Detroit's
restructuring and debt removal
calls for the city to spend $1.5
billion over 10 years to remove
blighted properties, upgrade
public-safety equipment and
technology and make other im-
provements.
Unlike his predecessors, Dug-
gan will take on the monumental
task of demolition with millions
of dollars in focused support from
the federal government and mil-
lions more set aside from bills the
city won't be paying to creditors
during its historic bankruptcy.
About $500 million of the $1.5
billion in Orr's plan would be
used to knock down up to 450
decaying, abandoned properties
each week. The U.S. government
also announced in September
that it would direct more than
$100 million in grants to help De-
troit tear down vacant buildings
and spur job growth.
Orr has said Detroit should
exit bankruptcy this year. His
18-month contract ends in the fall
and control could return to elect-
ed officials, although a transition
board could be put in place when
the emergency manager leaves.
