Snyder, Bing to announce revitalization program

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Gov. Rick Snyder, Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and public schools emergency manager Roy Roberts are expected to announce a neighborhood revitalization program where schools would become community hubs.

Details of the program are to be released Thursday afternoon at J.E. Clark Preparatory Academy in Detroit.

Officials will tour home improvement efforts near the school.  A vacant house also will be demolished.

The program will be piloted in the city's Morningside neighborhood in a half-mile radius around the school. It is expected to be expanded to other neighborhoods.

Bing this summer said the city planned to tear down 1,500 dangerous and abandoned structures by the end of September. The campaign is part of his goal of demolishing 10,000 vacant structures by the time his four-year term ends in December 2013.
