About a year ago, Lansing voters approved a proposal to sell the 120-acre Waverly Golf Course, along with the  adjacent Michigan Avenue Park.  Last night, the Lansing City Council considered the next step -- a formal decision to sell the land.  Lansing City Councilman Brian Jeffries, who heads the council’s planning and development committee, and Lansing Township Supervisor Kathy Rodgers discuss what this means, along with the larger future involving all that park and green space on Lansing’s Westside.

A past President of Lansing's Downtown Neighborhood Association so far is supportive of a proposed $6.8 million  development there.

East Lansing officials will decide Tuesday night whether the latest City Center II plans are worth further study. The East Lansing City Council is expected to vote on a ‘pre-development’ agreement with Strathmore Development involving the proposed $105 million mixed-use project.

The agreement calls for an outside accounting study of the plan to be paid for by developer Scott Chappelle. It would also give the City Council until July to decide whether to finally go forward with the often-delayed project.
