DFC Special Report: Renting in Detroit – A Market that Demands Attention

March 6, 2017

The Detroit Future City (DFC) Strategic Framework envisions a city of stable, sustainable, distinct and attractive neighborhoods that offer a diverse population of residents a wide range of housing options.  The Framework recommends many strategies to stabilize neighborhoods citywide and improve housing, including targeted code enforcement focused on absentee property owners and landlords, identifying key assets for renovation, and renovating publicly-owned homes in good condition and returning them to responsible, private owners.
