City of Detroit posts improvement updates online

Detroit Residents will be able to view the number of new streetlights installed in their Detroit neighborhood, how many lots were mown and the number of vacant houses demolished by going to the citys website.

The Detroit Dashboard is up and running and features links to information on community initiatives and city programs.

It says that for the week of July 13 through July 19 that 12,000 vacant lots were mown, 570 tons of illegally dumped trash and other materials removed and 88 homes were torn down. A post also says 57 lawsuits were filed against owners of abandoned properties.

The city says updates to the dashboard will be made on Thursdays.
