Another thread made me think of this. Why do local governments always feel the need to keep finding money to rebuild or rejuvenate areas. Detroit area has streets lined with abandoned homes. You see shows how they spend tons trying to rebuild. Perhaps it should just be cleared and returned to a natural state. Cost less and never any maintenance cost. Daytona beach keeps trying to reinvent its self, downtown, beach street, Main Street areas. Put it back to its original state. It will never be what it was, so quit spending. When it becomes delapidated, plow it and plant it. No more expensive studies. They plan to spend another 15 million in the downtown city island area again.
