Detroit is partnering with a new nonprofit group to step up the city’s efforts to tear down blighted buildings and clean up neighborhoods. Mayor Dave Bing announced the city’s new partnership with the Detroit Blight Authority during his State of the City address Wednesday. He said the group has already begun tearing down buildings and clearing away debris as part of a pilot project in a 10-block area across from a school near the city’s Eastern Market area.
