FLINT, Mich. – What to do with tens of thousands of vacant homes and properties was the topic of conversation at a forum in Flint Tuesday evening.

It was put on by the Flint Area Public Affairs Forum and included community development experts from University of Michigan-Flint, Kettering University and the city of Flint.

The goal is to help members of the community be more involved with what's happening in their neighborhoods.

"When you're surrounded by problematic areas, that can be a depressing situation. So, we don't want people to give up. We want people to carry on and to be proud of their community because this is a great place to live,” said Tom Wyatt of Kettering.

The next forum will be taking place again this spring at the library.

We will let you know when a date has been scheduled.
