I love the plan discussed in THIS ARTICLE from the Telegraph. While the likelihood of the plan discussed in the article becoming a reality outside of Flint, Michigan is still quite speculative, I'm really hopeful that this proves successful. Both the fiscal responsibility of contracting the size of the city service's reaches and the shift from abandoned, but developed to completely undeveloped are great reasons to give this a go. It is amazing the types of redevelopment that has followed greening projects (cleaning up brown zones or turning abandoned/unused property into greenway or park land). There are portions of North and South St. Louis that would tremendously benefit from this (East St. Louis is a lost cause for numerous reasons.).
