Niowave, the high-tech, particle acceleration company here in Lansing, has been growing. Its success has been a benefit in many ways to the community – more jobs, greater tax revenue, more clout in the tech world for the city.

But the company’s growth has also led to some friction.

Early last year, Niowave built a large pole barn at its headquarters, which is a former school in Lansing’s Walnut Neighborhood.
