  • Things on East Lansing City Council agenda next week: * Approving a negotiation with NAI Mid-Michigan for them to help market the 26.8 acre city-owned parcel at the southwesst corner of Coleman and West roads in the Northern Tier. * Public hear…
  • Some stuff going on at City Council on Monday: * Resolution up to change City Market Drive's name to Riverfront Drive. * Resolution up to vacate the portions of Jerome and Holmes streets around Sparrow with conditions. * Three ordinances introdu…
  • I go by it fairly regularly. It's quite popular, already. My only worry about it right now is COVID. I think I saw on social media them asking if the park's department cleans it and they said no and would suggest people bring their own wipes and suc…
  • I won't know how to act with this portion of Waverly having been redone. lol https://twitter.com/MDOT_LanJxn/status/1290363711421587456
  • Lansing Twitter is saying Capital City Market will open in October. I do not doubt it. I see that they've already done most of the wiring in the market as the lights are on, now. It will almost certainly open before the apartments and hotel are comp…
  • The two were formally sworn in, yesterday. https://twitter.com/CityofEL/status/1291494128774262790
  • Here's a public safety committee describing what the city was working with the owner on to clean up the plaza from June of last year: https://www.lansingmi.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_06062019-2648 It sounds like things were going well a…
  • Nice glass: https://twitter.com/BWLComm/status/1291108494817603595
  • So looking back through the comments, it looks like I last spoke about 1921-1925 West Holmes Road - this is just east of Pleasant Grove - way back in January 2019. I drove by that way today, and it looks like the 30-unit (10 in 3 buildings) townhom…

  • I've always thought the council was too small, so I'm excited to hear about expanding it. Heck, even a dinky general law township has to have five members; East Lansing is more than large enough to justify a council larger than 5 members.
  • I think you misunderstand. Short of them having to buy property from the homes along the riverbank - which is never going to happen - or putting a boardwalk in, their plan for the trail extension is simply to use Moores River Drive as a shared road…
  • Well, the two vacant council seats have been filled: https://twitter.com/thesnews/status/1289649153052520448 East Lansing City Council made history Saturday with the appointment of two new council members, creating the first council with pe…
  • Cliff, do you know if they are going to keep the same configuration (i.e. two lanes with paved shoulder)? I've always been kind of annoyed this area of town doesn't have a lot of curbs-and-gutters.
  • It's used quite a bit. I'm down there fairly often. It's been open for weeks, but I guess they just officially announced it.
  • Ugh. Two-way street conversion still happening in downtown Lansing but not this summer LANSING – Plans to convert six one-way downtown Lansing streets to two-way have been delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Previously, city official…
  • Been down there. Pretty nice. I do hope they plan to maintain it better than they have other parts of the park, though. https://twitter.com/lansingmichigan/status/1288466081565290498
  • I went and looked back at the recent planning commission agenda where this came up. The current owner is in the process of selling off the site and requested an extension of a year (to March 26, 2021) the existing site plan and special use permit f…
  • The owner is still trying to decide what to do with the site, and wanted to clear it to prevent it from becoming even more of a blight than it had already been for all these years.
