The Detroit enclave of Highland Park plans to demolish more than 300 abandoned and neglected structures.
The Detroit Free Press reported that the demolitions are paid for by part of a $13.8 million federal grant. Some have taken place already.
Highland Park Councilman Rodney Patrick said some money will be used to rehabilitate homes in a historic area of the city.
Hundreds of structures in Highland Park have been abandoned, including many that are severely damaged by fire.
