Avi, I appreciated your input. I recently ran across an insightful interview of Allan Mallach's take on revitalizing Detroit: (http://wgisblog.com/2010/03/13/how-would-you-revitalize-detroit/).

(Alan Mallach is a non-resident senior fellow at the Brookings Institute in Washington, DC and a senior fellow at the National Housing Institute in Montclair, New Jersey. He is a well-known and well-respected scholar of Planning & Community Development. He is also a visiting scholar in the community affairs department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and a lecturer in the graduate city planning program at Rutgers University. His area of expertise is housing policy and community development, and Alan is passionate about creating and identifying solutions to problems that affect communities in these areas.)
