My administration began to lay the foundation for the transformation of our city a year ago with the announcement of the Detroit Works Project Short-Term Actions. These Short-Term Actions were developed to give Detroiters tangible evidence of our overall strategy to improve their quality of life and redevelop the city. We recognize that our mission to improve and restore public safety, public transportation and public lighting - essential core services - is necessary to repopulate our city. We are Transforming Detroit by restructuring city government, rethinking urban policy and reclaiming Detroit’s future as a world-class city.
