DETROIT (AP) - Detroit residents this spring will be asked what future they see for vacant property in their neighborhoods and offered a guidebook on dealing with such land.

The Detroit News reports (https://bit.ly/1HlJkaD ) several initiatives funded by nonprofits and foundations are in the works to help transform lots into new uses that create beauty, generate jobs and produce tax revenue from private investment as well as clean air, land and water.

The Vacant Land Transformation Guide is being developed by Detroit Future City to encourage informed decisions across the city’s neighborhoods.

Stabilizing Detroit’s neighborhoods and finding uses for Detroit’s vast tracts of vacant land is a top priority for Mayor Mike Duggan’s administration. Duggan’s office announced last month that Maurice Cox had been appointed to lead planning efforts.
