  • I quit Facebook a while back, I followed a foraging group, which became political! There would be comments about gathering mushrooms from private and State lands, saying it was anyone's right to gather what they want where they want. They commented …
  • The Michigan Central Train Station was basically a bombed-out shell, and they found the money and will to save that building, I think the task of saving at least the facade of Eastern would be a much easier and less expensive than any of the rehabil…
  • Wow so cool, it's like a picture of somewhere else, something so cool looking and beneficial for our water systems can't be in Lansing! I am happy that it is. Thanks for posting.
  • There was an interesting note in the City Pulse stating that the architects for the Ovation Center have been chosen, and they are Albert Kahn Associates! of Royal Oak. I think this might be a good plan.
  • Just an observation, I have had reason to travel on E. Michigan Ave and found that it looks really terrible with the trees all cut down. I would suppose there are not many who remember what Michigan Ave. looked like before those trees were planted i…
  • The new restaurant/game center next to the Jackson building had the roof spans delivered yesterday. This project has completely rebuilt the building adding a second floor. The work has been going on for months and must be costing a lot of money. I h…
  • I have noticed the new historically correct windows on the dorms west of Campbell. I do appreciate the University's consideration of the details when restoring or building new. I know it is apples and oranges to compare Lansing and MSU administratio…
  • What I get from this proposal is an effort to get the city council to stop looking at these assets as a drain on resources and maybe appreciate or understand the benefits of the assets. At least I think that is what this proposal is meant to accompl…
  • Thanks for the information, this plan sounds exciting. I hope the window replacements will be historically correct.
  • MSU has erected cyclone style fencing around Campbell Hall, I am hoping it is just temporary as it is not attractive to look at. I'm thinking they are going to do some work on the dorm.
  • It is a nice building, it seems unusual to have a museum dedicated to a horrible school bombing, I hope besides the memorial commemoration there is some more positive Bath School history on display.
  • I often wonder about the self-storage business. In Greater Lansing there must be thousands of units, and now they want to build more! What is profit for the owners? These facilities are in my mind the most anti-human anti-neighborhood ugly useless t…
  • This new plan sounds interesting, although it is kind of ironic that the old City Hall building was considered too small and the one of the reason's they did not like the Masonic Temple was because it was too large. I am hoping for a unique design f…
  • Yes I am not sure that they were removing the riverside sculpture, as I saw what looked like perpetrations to do so. I remember the sculpture being part it the plan of the new Michigan Ave median. You should have seen the condition of the river in …
  • I went over to Old Town yesterday, I really like to get out of EL and go somewhere that reminds me we live in a big city with many different neighborhoods to visit. I took a walk up the River Trail to take a look at the new playground which is reall…
  • Today in the LSJ.com an artical pointed out that there will the need for at least 7,500 housing units in Greater Lansing due to many large employers opening new facilities that will offer thousands of new jobs. It seems like we are improving the inf…
  • I am not sure just what issues they brought up, but I would guess that having all the traffic lanes closer to their homes instead of half on the other side of the very large median. Remembering the old Logan Street, it was really an urban thoroughfa…
  • I saw a post that said the Mayor has decided to stop the MLK project looking into perhaps a different plan with the input of the neighborhood.
  • They took out the temporary signal in front of Sparty, which makes it a bit easier to go over to Kalamazoo Street to get downtown from EL. Also better for the student's Cap and Gown shots with the statue!
