The problem right now is the Detroit City Council, that just turned down an offer from the State to lease it and take it off Detroit taxpayers’ hands for a while. I don’t know if the charter city idea would be so applicable to Belle Isle which has been loved as a city park for a long time, but with all the other vacant land around the city I think there may be room to start anew.

But I do not think our governor is forward-thinking enough to allow its implementation.
