Jewel Ware the County Commission Chair is blocking the Land Bank for Wayne County because Detroit gets only 1 seat on the 5 member board. I wish this would just move forward and am comfortable with input from the rest of wayne county. What do you think? Is she doing the right thing?

Depends.

If she is able to get a better representation deal, she's a terrific leader who is bound for bigger and better things.

If she can't, she's an ass who should be voted out of office immediately.

The Genesee County Land Bank has been very active lately, buying up parcels in Flint. I don't know what Flint's representation is. I do know that some have criticized Treasurer Dan Kildee for moving too far, too fast with getting land and buildings.

so does this scrap the deal? or just sent it to get renegotiated? how far would this set this motion back?

I believe that there will possibly be two land banks, a City of Detroit Land bank, and a Wayne County Landbank.

The county landbank will somewhat overlap, as it will be active in the city.

I'm not sure if the city needs greater representation on the county landbank, but that depends on who the other reps are. If their constituancies are the entire county, then I'd say no. If they are from other cities and townships, than seats should be proportional to population.
