City officials in East Lansing are asking citizens to look at “The Bigger Picture.”  That’s the name of East Lansing’s long-range comprehensive plan. The city will study its land usage to come up with the best strategies for residential and retail development.

Tim Dempsey, director of planning, building and development for the City of East Lansing, tells Current State that the city will spend a lot of time listening to residents, MSU students, and others this week.

The idea, he says, is to look long term rather than focus on individual projects.
