  • The city has installed a lot of new signs on the River Trail. They look good but there are a lot of them, four just behind my building. No one will be getting lost now! That is for sure.
  • Thank you for that information. I hope there will be something fun that will be going in there, and also I hope they don't just sit on it, it would be nice to see activity on that corner. I wonder if Pablo made a profit on the sale, they did do a lo…
  • Just a little tree update. The nice row of flowering plum trees that were blooming the other day at St Joe and Washington are indeed gone. I am sure they were in an area that will be a parking lot when the bank opens, car vs tree, the car always win…
  • I am wondering what effect the new drain system and the small lake will have on this area? I am hoping that they will help to stop flooding, I think it would be beneficial to build a better drain system under the road or by building an elevated road…
  • The construction of the new Lake Trust Bank branch at St. Joe and S. Washington branch has begun, lots of digging going on. I hope it is a good looking building, a bank branch is not very exciting but it is nice to see a building going up on a forme…
  • This is I believe the Mid-'70's judging by the cars, that is a '72 Chevy Vega[?] turning down S. Washinton Ave. Also those cement flower planters are from that era.
  • I am so happy that this project will be built that the unimaginative design is not a problem form me. I was hoping the architects had given up on the flat roof toppers as some sort of design flare. I hope when finished they will have used some qual…
  • This is good news. That section of Aurelius will be seeing more traffic when the new hospital and housing developments open. They are also working on Forest Road. I hope they also get to Collins next.
  • It seems like some micro-managing here, I guess they finally jumped through all the hoops they needed to. Does this mean they are not building on platforms that allow the water to flow under the buildings? This may have already bee noted but I do no…
  • This is a great sight to see. Next, we need the downtown stretch rebuilt. Yesterday even though there was very light traffic, someone flipped their car at the Grand Ave exit. It seems like a lot of accidents happen right in that same area. I wonder …
  • I did write the mayor with several recommendations, and he said he would keep them in mind. I was thinking more formal with more gardens and landscaping where people might like to hold a marriage ceremony or pose in front of the working fountain for…
  • I think that there are a lot of nice things they could have done to improve this park and a playground was about the last. Honestly, if I see and hear kids playing there I will be happy, but I kind of hate when Lansing does stuff like this, erect th…
  • I spy out my window today that workmen are clearing out the old service station on the corner of S Washington and Elm. Looks like they may be collecting the tools etc that Pablo's left in there. I wonder if the building has sold? I am getting out o…
  • I noticed a project beginning in Rutter Park on Capitol Ave. It looks like the city is building a large playground in Rutter Park right in front of the fountain. I find this disappointing to build a playground in the middle of downtown in our only f…
  • I took Wood Road on my return trip from my cabin [thank God I got to go up it was so nice to be away from Lansing] where I noticed the new road on the north side of Eastwood is nearly finished. They installed some nice looking fencing, and it looks …
  • This site looks like a better fit for a recycling facility, it is about as out of sight as you could hope for. It would be great if the BWL turned their area into a parkland, I'm sure they will most likely plan to have an industrial park there.
  • I have been wondering about the BWL move to the west side. I have not been that way in a while, are they building a new complex over there? I have not noticed any construction at the S. Penn. site. It is an industrial site[ has it been vacant for ye…
  • This time of year is a great time to walk the River Trail, the Scott Woods section has a lot of beautiful wildflowers starting to bloom, the other day I found wild ramps growing they are one of the first editable plants to collect in the spring. The…
  • I took my sanity walk, out at MSU yesterday and noticed the new wood-framed building the was a power plant is nearly finished and is a really beautiful building, the contemporary design is very cool. Also, the new Music Provillian looks very nice wi…
  • I know it's not really a page for politics here, but I have to say that what I witnessed Wednesday was quite alarming. I was sitting here at my desk when about ten vehicles pull into the office building's parking lot next door. They all get out each…
