Sale of City Parks

According to a Detroit Free Press October 26, 2007 article, Kilpatrick has proposed selling off 92 city parks. Most of these are less than one acre in size. City officials estimate it could generate $8.1 million from the sale of the 124 acres (50 ha) of land. It has been noted that the sale of the city parks will generate a substantial portion of the funds required to pay the settlement of the whistleblower lawsuit against Kilpatrick filed by two ex-city employees.[via Detroit Free Press, Oct. 26th 2007]
