It's a start, a demonstration project if you will. Everyone should understand the magnitude of the numbers. When fully implemented, this will use 140 acres. The city has 25,600 vacant acres not including sites with abandoned homes on them. So this project is really minimal in terms of effect. Still, demolishing these homes is quite worthwhile.
