Urban Renewal

I got a Tweet today about a story over at BoingBoing.net

Detroit is thinking of plowing under one quarter of the city.

Currently there are many areas in detroit that have vacant, non functional neighborhoods. With the closing of so many auto manufacturing plants the city is left with many abandoned homes and businesses.

Their great idea? Demolish specific neighborhoods and turn them into farm land!

More information from the Washington Times

I truly love this idea and would love to see more greenbelts on every major city.
