It's good to see people doing for themselves. Now if the city would just get out of their way, there could be more progress.

The article highlights something that folks in the trenches have known for years: neighborhoods that want to revitalize have to take things into their own hands. City hall isn't going to do anything for you.

Bravo to Chris and Libby at JEBA as well as all the great folks down in SW Detroit (too numerous to name here) who've been slugging it out for years (even lifetimes for some).
