This has to be an April Fool's joke out of season. I mean even the Mayor is not this stupid, is he? I wonder which one of the Mayor's buddies needs a drag strip to test his car, that can be the only reason for this folly. Since I'm out of the area now

Flint Mayor Don Williamson plans city-owned drag strip; What do you think? - diablotin.info
That means racing on Bluff Street likely won't happen at all, because Kettering University is building a research center there, and Williamson said he's moving forward with plans for a permanent drag strip south of the Flint River at the "Chevy in the Hole" site. The permanent drag strip would be built in the spring, the mayor said. He had suggested a car show and "engine testing" on the street for Saturday, but the rainy weather scuttled the plans. Williamson did leave the door open for future car shows on Bluff Street, but no drag racing. The races came close to happening, as city workers painted start and finish lines on Bluff Street, paved the street and installed guardrails. Councilman Sheldon Neeley rallied against the drag strip, saying it was too close to a neighborhood, and it wouldn't be safe. While no houses are located on Bluff Street, it intersects with a few residential streets.
