Redford is not what it used to be. Crime and blight are creeping in from Detroit. The schools are suffering in quality and stability. It's going in the same direction as Detroit.

People often say, "Who cares what happens to Detroit?" Well, failing nearby cities is one reason to care.

Its the corruption at all levels in township goverment that caused the population decrease. Redford Twp. always bordered Detroit It aint Detroit. Ask Tracy Kobylair and John Selmi why?

The corruption is certainly an element. Yes, I am aware that Detroit has always been near Redford. Duh. In the past, black former Detroiters were not moving to Redford. The city was more white.

I think Redford is better than Detroit

I watched Redford go from upscale to a place where windows and doors are now barred up. The security signs are on many lawns. Small gangs are roaming about . Kids on bikes are going up and down the block "shopping" for open garages and opportunities. At some point the population should turn back up as the reproductive rate of the new demographic is greater than it was.

Redford is still better than many sections of Detroit. This is no endorsement as the trend is down. What do you want in your future? Bars? Crime?Gangs? Disturbances of the peace?Poor schools? If so, Redford is your destination city.
