The Ford City Neighbourhood Renewal works with residents and community members to compile a list of vacant and derelict buildings in Ford City. In cooperation with the City of Windsor we have identified the worst buildings for demolition and the city attempts to work with each owner and inspects each building carefully before the decision to remove is chosen.
There have been 9 homes torn down within the Ford City area since the Blight Mitigation Strategy was put into effect by the City of Windsor.
2027 Richmond is one of those buildings and community members have been celebrating. The building should be completely removed by end of August.

The Drouillard Library is a community based art project, initiated through the Neighbourhood Spaces residency program, in July 2014.
The Drouillard Library will act as an unofficial drop-off for Windsor’s e-Waste program from August 13-17, from 9–5pm.
Residents of Drouillard with old electronic equipment may drop off the following items—no matter their age, model or condition—
  • Monitors and televisions;
  • Desktop and laptop computers and electronic game;
  • Hard drives, keyboards, mice, add-on cards and circuit boards;
  • Copiers, scanners, printers, fax machines, typewriters;
  • Telephones and answering machines;
  • PDAs and pagers;
  • Amplifiers, pre-amplifiers and equalizers;
  • Audio players and recorders;
  • Tuners, radios, receivers, stereos, speakers, turntables;
