Untitled[edit]

Nov 16, 2004: City was incorrectly listed as being east of US 127 instead of west of it. Also, date of incorporation of villiage was listed incorrectly. I also added a bunch of historical summary to the page, including the great fire of 1930. I used the DeWitt community's history website as my chief reference : http://www.dewittmi.org/web/FRcomm.htm. Also, DeWitt was incorrectly spelled as "De Witt" throughout wikipedia. I tried to make the changes to as many of them as I could, but I could not find them all. -TAII

Thanks for your contributions. I'm afraid I mixed up east and west WRT 127--I think it is a sort of directional dyslexia. The name as "De Witt" with a space, I believe, was because that's how it appears in the Census data from which the original article was generated. The discrepency in dates may be a result of reporting the date when incorporation was approved versus the date the incorporation became effective. Communities tend to report the earlier date whereas other sources list the effective date. olderwiser 16:49, Nov 16, 2004 (UTC)

That's interesting that the Census data has it incorrectly spelled--it's a common mistake that DeWitt residents are quick to correct. I think the DeWitt Township situation is the same, but I don't know much about the township and so I don't presume to change anything, nor can I easily find a source to confirm it. Thanks for your contributions as well.

Urban planners[edit]

I removed hyperbolic claim "Home to more Urban Planners per Capita than any other city in the Western Hemisphere" from the article. Perhaps there is some basis for the claim, perhaps something can be said, but I am sure that some modification to the claim is needed, and a published source is needed. Or perhaps it was a sarcastic statement, say from a would-be developer frustrated about building permit bureaucracy. --Doncram (talk) 08:28, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
