As I understand it, most of the land the City has acquired and is stuck with is due to developers pulling out of a project AFTER the City had spent $100,000's of money to buy something to tear down for the Developer's project.
This has happened more than once and as long as a decade ago and as recent as about a year ago.(no learning curve)Unless developed,this is a HUGE waste of taxpayers money and there is a lot of City owned land.

This must be a drain on the City budget when you add the decline in property values. It's the same old thing as they think and operate like Government instead of Business. It's not like it's their own money they spend, it's OUR'S the taxpayers money they are wasting so far!

We can only hope that one of the lots the City owns will be developed and be a real positive project and enhance GB As you drive South on Saginaw it's starting to look like the blight is moving from Flint, to Burton to GB Township and now creeping into the City of Grand Blanc.

In the past year, there has been a large turnover in City Government, a new Mayor,3 new City Council members and the new $100,000/year City Manager is supposed to have excellent development skills. Lets hope so! If not, in the next election their will be more turnover!
