Windsor blight hits 400 properties, community group reports - Windsor - CBC News
Windsor is home to 400 vacant lots, properties and buildings, many on some of its busiest streets and in its iconic neighbourhoods.

Blight is everywhere.
In the past few years major retailers like Target, Sobey's and Jysk have either closed or moved locations, leaving large commercial structures empty.

Kathryn Tisdale created the 'Windsor's Vacant Buildings and Lots' webpage to raise awareness of how much vacant space Windsor has.

"The obvious discovery for me is it's so much worse that I thought," Tisdale said.

Radio-Canada put together a map with the 400 vacancies found so far. More than 100 are residential properties owned by the Canadian Transit Company in the Indian Road neighbourhood in the city's west end.

Taking Back Our Neighbourhoods Report
Mapping the need for neighbourhood revitalization
Using data gathered from the previous three censuses (2011, 2006, 2001) United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County, in partnership with the Great Lakes Institute of Environmental Research (GLIER), has mapped a number of the socio-economic indicators that have shaped Windsor and Essex County. Over the last decade of census data, poverty levels have become more concentrated in certain neighbourhoods in Windsor and Essex County.

Windsor and Essex County do not exist in a vacuum from each other and from the world. If we truly hope to compete economically and socially on a global stage, we cannot allow areas of our communities to continue into further decline. Only by working together and strategically targeting resources can we hope to solve this entrenched and structural poverty in our region.
