People continue to dog Flint for all the negativity that's plagued the city for years and yes, there are still issues that need to be addressed and fixed but things are definitely moving forward in a positive way.

According to ABC12, Flint Mayor Karen Weaver and U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson are expected to make an announcement later this week on the progress that is being made regarding economic development.

It's pretty exciting that Lear is expected to have their grand opening next month. The company which is located on Davison Rd will employ 600 workers. It's also looking like a Hilton Garden Inn and Elga Credit Union branch will moving into downtown Flint soon as well.

We can't always focus on the negative.
