Notified About

  • Other Open
    314 W Huron Street Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    This house is a rental and has been a blight on this neighborhood for quite some time. October 12th there was a drug raid with 10-12 LPD squad cars, guns drawn, children called out, house searched and a dog shut in the basement that is still there. This house is a nuisance house and the landlord should be fined and, at the very least, the house should be sold.
  • 1624 James St Lansing, MI - Lansing
    Filthy mattress thrown into yard with other furniture. The mess gets worse daily. It appears that someone is living on the front porch. Many adults and one small female toddler living in filthy conditions. Bushes in front of house have grown to height of 12 foot. How long is the neighborhood expected to put up with a rental in this condition? This has been going on for 2 years. Please condemn this house.
  • 1304 W Barnes Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    Parked on front lawn daily, despite ample space in driveway. Renters enjoy the irritation they cause neighbors; landlord enjoys threatening neighbors who call about this house. Constant revving of motorcycles at all hours. Tenants sometimes ride motorcycles on SIDEWALKS.
  • Lansing River Trail Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    Huge washout / pothole on the River Trail just after crossing a bridge (west side). Very dangerous. Had a caution barrel by for much of last year; no barrel or anything warning people now.
  • 428 Beaver St. Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    Rental house w/ tenants who continually leave couches, old carpet mounds, moldy furniture & garbage overflowing on their porch, side yard, front yard & sidewalk. There was a dirty carpet mound out front for at least 2 months & this couch/porch garbage issue has been going on for over a week.
  • 1624 James St Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    garbage on front porch, back porch, in yard, in garage, in house, on sidewalk. Garage door broken and hanging with graffiti sprayed on it. When there is an issue with bed bug furniture, parking or children the mess is moved one house down the street to 1616 James. Same people appear to live in both rentals 1624 & 1616 James. The condition of these 2 properties is ruining our neighborhood. NEIGHBORHOOD WOULD LIKE LANSING CITY CODE COMPLIANCE OFFICERS TO INSPECT THESE HOMES. This has gone on for over a year with no assistance from the landlord at either property. Neighborhood is unsafe because of these 2 homes. Constant traffic, garbage, neglected children, loud and aggressive tenants, bed bugs and vermin. Possible drug trafficking. Please evict these tenants and condemn these 2 unsafe properties. Landlord does nothing to assist neighbors who have contacted him.
  • 1624 James St Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    For almost 2 years 1624 James St., 1 block west of the Golden Harvest, has had renters that have trashed the neighborhood, destroyed the property and have ruined this beautiful area of Old Town, Lansing. Neighbors have continually contacted City of Lansing Code Enforcement, City Hall, Mayor Bernero, Lansing City Police, the Slum Lord and we still have to deal with the trash, garbage, vermin, LOUD cursing adults, unsupervised children. Home owners in this area are BEGGING THE CITY OF LANSING to please condemn this house and evict these tenants. I do not know one city official who would allow this mess in their neighborhood.
  • Lansing River Trail Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    These bollards on either side of one of the bridges on the River Trail headed towards Scotts' Woods just south of Mt. Hope Rd. need some reflective material added as people might run into them in low light. Don't understand why these bollards are even necessary.
  • No Sidewalks Archived
    4101 S. Waverly Rd Lansing, MI - Lansing
    Between Holmes Rd and Maybelle pedestrians must either walk in the street or on top of snow banks.
    Sidewalks need to be installed.
  • Pothole Archived
    2094-2108 East Mount Hope Avenue Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    East Mt Hope is one massive pothole. How is it possible that the city/state is doing absolutely NOTHING about this mess!! I want to know what plans are being made to fix it. Or are we going to continue to run down our cars on these roads. The state of the roads in Lansing in general (especially Michigan Avenue leading up to the Capitol) is an embarrassment to the state legislators & to MSU. I want to hear from them!
  • 5005 Hughes Rd Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    The following case was heard in 2014 by Magistrate Millmore and her DEFAULT judgment is below. Compliance has not been maintained as the images reflect. A 20 Ft. boat trailer has been parked in the illegal driveway for over 2 months .Code compliance officers Mike Morrison and Greg Scrimger have been contacted innumerable times and confirmed that the court order has not been followed but responds "what can we do?" They will not forcibly remove the driveway by re-installing the curb. I was told "he has rights". What about my rights? I have been told multiple times it "was turned over to Scott Sandford" who I believe has been complicit with this resident and has disregarded his responsibility to enforce the court order. I have the right to live in a residential neighborhood to expect the enforcement of zoning laws. Code compliance also informed me that the zoning administrator Stachowiak has disregarded the zoning laws and the Court Order and allowed the Illegal driveway to remain. Case #14M003539 Violation codes 1248.03 (B) (12),1286.01, 1286.02. ALL COUNTS
    IT IS ORDERED TO CEASE PARKING COMMERCIAL
    VEHICLES AT 5005 HUGHES RD. LIMIT NUMBER OF
    PRIVATELY OWNED VEHICLES TO 4 AT SAME
    LOCATION. CEASE PARKING IN FRONT YARD
    MISCELLANEOUS ACTION ALL COUNTS
    WHICH MEANS LIMITING PARKING TO ONE DRIVE
    WAY ONLY WHICH SHALL NOT BE THE DRIVEWAY
    INSTALLED ILLEGALLY. ALL COMPLIANCE MUST BE
