Any thoughts for or against Prop 1? Here is the text of the proposal:

Reduce the state use tax and replace with a local community stabilization share of the tax for the purpose of modernizing the tax system to help small businesses grow and create jobs in Michigan.
2. Require Local Community Stabilization Authority to provide revenue to local governments dedicated for local purposes, including police safety, fire protection, and ambulance emergency services.
3. Increase portion of state use tax dedicated for aid to local school districts.
4. Prohibit Authority from increasing taxes.
5. Prohibit total use tax rate from exceeding existing constitutional 6% limitation.

Quote:

Charter One branches in Michigan will be rebranded as Citizens Bank next year as part of a broader strategy to unify the Citizens Financial Group Inc. brand.

This change, also scheduled for Citizens’ Charter One branches in Ohio, will result in a uniform Citizens Bank presence across the company’s 11-state retail footprint by mid-2015.
This Citizens Bank is completely unrelated to the one that was recently rebranded to First Merit.

"195,000-square-foot, five-story medical office building with retail on the ground floors, a four-floor mixed-use commercial building and a 648-space parking ramp"

looks like the commercial two story building and the 12 story hammer and nail will both come down.. but with two new buildings replacing them,and a parking garage... i never heard about the four story mixed use building before today.. interesting..

"But confusion over the lease in the suburbs provided an opening for Detroit, soon after Duggan took office as mayor, to make a pitch for the hub."

"Duggan himself met with ALMMII officials. A tentative deal to locate in Detroit was struck and a lease concluded in the past few days."

that's what the hell i like to see out of my mayor dammit.. acting fast for a phenomenal opportunity and makes it happen!! it is so nice having a competent leadership..

let's see what the trolls have to say about this... bham?? anyone??

Am I missing something here? This article states that a woman living tax free in a city-owned house drove up in a BMW to find eight police officers, two utility workers, and an attorney in the front yard. In spite of this she is still occupying the house! Maybe tax free housing is a "Human Right" too.

I just ran across a June 2014 issue of Metro (the trade magazine for rail and bus transit). They have an article about the amount of streetcar/subway projects going on in the US and Canada. Right now there are about $99 billion in funded projects in some phase of design or construction.

New York leads the list with $16.55 billion.

2. Toronto-$13.2 billion
3. Seattle-$9 billion
4. Boston-$6.2 billion
5. Honolulu-$5.1 billion
6. San Diego-$3.5 billion
7. Los Angeles-$3.4 billion
8. Denver-$3.3 billion
9. Washington DC-$3.1 billion
10. Newington CT-$3.0 billion


Detroit? M-1 Rail with $137 million puts it in 40th place.

I am so sorry I didn't post this event. It was today and just fantastic. Free everything including lunch. This is an event discontinued years ago by Parks and recs and restarted at the behest of our mayor. It was so organized and well run.

The highlights were Ike Mckinnon on stage doing a duet with a staffer that has an amazing operatic. She got him to sing " it's a wonderful world". Mayor Duggan said he was sorry he miss that.

Alexander Zonjeck (Sp) proformed a whole set, just fabulous. His keyboardist was one of the finest in the country, Chris Codish. The whole band was superb.
