Im not in favour of raising taxes, but if you have messed up you need to clean up. Just as many european countries have to do at the moment. Detroit needs to be revitalized and it has to cost.

But that's the thing; they have raised taxes for decades. And this is the result.
What they need to do is stop doing just that, lure companies back into town and get people employed.

^ Exactly!

Btw, what's the current status for the Station? I heard of more definite plans to revitalise it, but not sure that materialised.

it's a shame no one has even posted any pics of the station interior or complete exterior photos so we can all assess its value and state of repair. Would be very exciting to see in any case. Thanks in advance to whomever could post said.

This drone video of winter 2016 shows Michigan Central Station Detroit in full aerial splendour, including its fresh windows that were installed by the end of 2015:
