in honor of jack bruces’ passing. i remembered i had this program but i can’t say i remember anything of that nights experience. sadly i think that has more to do with my age at the time ( 17 ) rather than any glorious drug soaked amnesia. anyhow - i can’t believe how bad the design, layout and reproduction is - right down to the doodlesque psychedelic “typography”. a google search confirmed the date and location. olympia stadium.

maybe some other “detroit yes!” contributors can fill in their recollections.

I wonder how many of these buildings, how much of this land, will be renovated and have some kind of community educational/recreational component? What, if any kind of other uses would be entertained? http://www.detroitnews.com/story/new...ment/18058887/ Excerpt:
Quote:

Detroit — Mayor Mike Duggan and Detroit Public Schools Emergency Manager Jack Martin announced a deal Tuesday to erase $11.6 million in debt DPS owes the city in return for the transfer of 77 vacant school buildings and lots.
Under the agreement, the city will forgive the debt, primarily electric bills DPS owes, according to a statement posted on the city's website.
In exchange, DPS will turn over control of 57 vacant schools (31 secured and 26 unsecured) and 20 vacant lots where schools once stood. According to the district, the value of the properties equals what the district owes the city.
"We will take between 10 and 12 buildings and move in a timely manner to demolish them," Duggan said.
The city has identified $4.3 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds that can be used to raze those structures by mid-July, the mayor said.
"Each property that has a good playground will be assessed by Parks and Recreation," he said. "If they are well maintained, the rec department will make them available to the neighborhood."
Duggan said all of the buildings will not be demolished.
"There may come a day when more people move back into the city," he said

What a delight. A juvenile peregrine falcon landed on our sill yesterday. One of our team snapped this picture with an autumnal backdrop of the United Artist Building, Grand Circus Park and the Tiger's ball park.


From Wikipedia:
The peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus), also known as the peregrine, and historically as the duck hawk in North America, is a widespread bird of prey in the family Falconidae. A large, crow-sizedfalcon, it has a blue-grey back, barred white underparts, and a black head and "moustache". As is typical of bird-eating raptors, peregrine falcons are sexually dimorphic, females being considerably larger than males.The peregrine is renowned for its speed, reaching over 322 km/h (200 mph) during its characteristic hunting stoop (high speed dive), making it the fastest member of the animal kingdom.According to a National Geographic TV programme, the highest measured speed of a peregrine falcon is 389 km/h (242 mph)

Proposed Amtrak improvements - Pontiac/Detroit to Chicago http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19311-Proposed-Amtrak-improvements-Pontiac-Detroit-to-Chicago&goto=newpost Wed, 29 Oct 2014 14:02:46 GMT A draft environmental impact statement was released today discussing plans to greatly improve Amtrak service between the Detroit area and Chicago...
A draft environmental impact statement was released today discussing plans to greatly improve Amtrak service between the Detroit area and Chicago (and to all stops in between).

Full report here

Some quick details of the proposed service based on the top-level improvement scenario:

  • Trip time Detroit (New Center) to Chicago reduced from 5:36 to 3:46, with 110mph service for the full route.
  • Increase service from 3 trips/day to 10 trips/day Detroit-Chicago, with 7 of those continuing to Pontiac.
  • New station buildings, platforms, parking, and/or other facilities at nearly every station along the route.
    • At New Center, they propose a new building, two new platforms with overhead access, new parking structure, and new layover tracks (presumably for the 7 "short trip" trains per day).

  • 493,474 passengers rode this route in 2000, with 739,398 riding in 2012. Estimate for 2035 of 2,800,000 riders assuming 10 trains/day at 110mph.
  • Route stays the same except for a few routing options between Chicago and Indiana.
  • Also considering scenarios for continued 3 trains per day service (but with the speed improvements) or 6 trains per day with the speed improvements.
  • Capital costs 2.37 to 2.98 billion dollars.


Apologies if this has already been discussed at some earlier stage of development. EDIT: And apparently there was a public meeting last night in Dearborn, so maybe I'm way behind on this. Was anyone there?

Seems like it's still early in the process but hoping for the best. My grandmother used this service for over a decade after she stopped driving Ann Arbor-Kalamazoo (much to our relief), and I used it frequently as a kid to visit her on my own and to travel when I was a student at UM. At the proposed service level, I'm sure you'd also see a significant increase in business riders.

DDOT poor bus services http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19309-DDOT-poor-bus-services&goto=newpost Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:38:37 GMT
I had noticed that DDOT's services wait time had increased under this new Director and Mayor instead of decreasing as promised. It was said that Gary Brown once had control over the bus system and ruled over the new director. The 15 minute wait time for particular lines from the hours of 6am to 6pm is no longer intact. Many people have to wait for more than a half hour for a bus during rush hours in the morning and afternoon. I should had known that this new director wasn't going to do much especially when he had taken a picture leaning on his nice shiny car while a DDOT bus was in the background being repaired. Where is the outcry? Customer service doesn't tell anything but take your name and number

Everyone seems so thrilled that Billionaires are investing in Detroit Land
- why is no one pushing for massive improvement in water ?

People do realize it gets sucked up near Belle Isle for us to drink ?
That swirly stuff shown below isn't "clean" - it's like that gunk on green fish tank walls.
Lots and lots of stuff simply is NOT checked for as it comes to your tap.

Approximately 15,000 new chemicals and biological sequences are registered every day and no sequence of "Filtering" methods can catch everything that exists. An increasingly diverse array of organic and inorganic chemicals are simply slipping thru into the water supply .

Perhaps Detroit is putting the Cart before the Horse;
with a major priority put on the back burner ,
in an endless kick the can on down the road for tomorrow.

I recently noticed this billboard on west I-94 in Dearborn promoting Dr. Rob Steele for U-M regeants. I've noticed some other physicians getting into politics in recent years. I wonder why. Are you not that good to have a decent practice? Do you find medicine to be unfulfilling? Are you trying to create public policy on healthcare or influence it to your beliefs/positions? I'm trying to understand why one who put in so much time & money become a doctor would give it up to be in the legislature. Any ideas?

Five Points http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19305-Five-Points&goto=newpost Tue, 28 Oct 2014 18:42:41 GMT
Does anyone have any historical information on Detroit's "five point" intersection at Grand River and 7 Mile? It looks to me like it must've been altered at some point when "Michigan lefts" were added on Grand River. It seems as if Five Points Street must've run straight through Grand River at one point, though I can't say for sure.

Just looking at the map, it's a screwy area. I don't know why they even bothered to have Five Points Street connect with the modern Grand River with 7 Mile "in the way", and there's that weird Albert Street nearby breaking up the grid with another funky angle. And plus there's all those "fake"/old Grand River Aves running parallel to the real Grand River. In fact, Five Points runs through one of the imposter Grand Rivers.

What the heck, Detroit?
