Mayor Bing's plans for reshaping Detroit delayed
DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Mayor Dave Bing's plans for reshaping the city as it deals with a shrinking population have been delayed.
The Detroit News reports Wednesday that Bing had been expected to deliver details of a plan this year but that has been pushed back to 2012.
Bing spokesman Dan Lijana says short-term solutions could be released in a "matter of weeks" along with detailed analyses of neighborhoods and the economy. The look at the city's neighborhoods was first expected in April but also was pushed back.
Lijana says the Detroit Works Project is trying to respond to residents who want immediate help.
Bing is working to strengthen the most viable neighborhoods and deal with some nearly vacant parts of the city.
