Right-sizing the city of Detroit: Good or bad?

The city of Detroit and its residents are stuck in a deadlocked battle about the concept of "right-sizing." While not a new concept, Detroit Mayor Dave Bing remains steadfast on relocating residents living in sparsely populated neighborhoods into more concentrated areas to provide more efficient core services, but many residents are saying, "No way!"

This video from Publius.org and the Detroit Works Project explains what the population decline and resulting loss of tax revenue has meant for the city and the services it is able to provide, and how right-sizing may help solve that problem.

This video was produced in response to the Detroit Works Project by the People's Movement Assembly, which explains why they don't believe right-sizing is a very good idea.
