In Pontiac, Demolition Means Progress

Last week, Pontiac, MI Councilman Randy Carter created a SeeClickFix issue for an abandoned home on Yale Avenue (at right). It's been in this condition for over two years, he wrote, and the city had neglected to add it to its demolition list. Another resident commented that she's seen "squatters inside at night."

Just one week after raising awareness about the problem on SeeClickFix, Carter posted an update: the house has been demolished!

Check out the photo of the site on the right. A classic "before and after". The city also knocked down a house on Columbia Avenue.

Congrats to Councilman Carter and the residents of Pontiac for making change happen in their town. As the sign says, "Demolition Means Progress."
