Detroit neighborhoods with more people and a better chance of survival will receive different levels of city services than more blighted areas under a plan unveiled Wednesday that some residents fear may pit them against each other for scarce resources.

Mayor Dave Bing released details from his Detroit Works Project, calling the changes a “short-term intervention” necessary because the city, with limited financial resources, a $155 million budget deficit and a dwindling population, was spread dangerously thin.

Next step is to change the signs at the Detroit city limits to say “Welcome to Starnesville”.
