Johio, I suppose you're going to be having weekly picnics at Uptown Green, so enjoy yourself. It'll be more believable if you post photos.
Bring plenty of spare change and cigarettes with you. And a lighter, in case the bums need that as well.
Nolan, I realize the funding for Uptown Green mostly came from the state, private grants or elsewhere. However, inevitably the city ends up paying for the upkeep or other costs and I think the city has greater needs elsewhere than creating more park space.
I believe the land bank should be more transparent about prices being paid for property they are acquiring and selling. From what AREIS shows, prices aren't listed. If I'm incorrectly looking, somebody please inform me where I need to search to discover prices.
Johio, they aren't just acquiring worthless properties and what is the process to acquire these properties via land bank giveaways as you've mentioned?
Nolan, there are dozens, but to begin, here are two properties with history with LUCAS COUNTY LAND REUTILIZATION CORPORATION, aka land bank, that deserve further transparency. 706 Monroe (currently owned) and 2041 Glenwood (previously acquired and later transferred/sold to a private citizen).
