Conservatively, it's about 20 Billion in Debt first off. Then to rehabilitate the neighborhoods and businesses and factories to "normal" suburban
standards, you are talking probably another 50 Billion or so, if not more.
Literally, Detroit needs a modern day Marshall Plan. You basically have to rebuild it all and it's a very large City, area-wise. There's a very
valid reason why Detroit has been losing it's population, the City is run down and even if you fix your area, it's a drop in the bucket, which has
huge holes in it.
I'm sure they will take your Donation towards fixing it........I am assuming you want to pay for it with some of your money, not just other people's
