  • 1510 Marcus St Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    The words "wonder land" has been painted on the home in bright red paint with an arrow pointing into a bedroom window. There is garbage all over the yard. There is an old rug, a giant pile of leaves, broken parts of living room furniture, old doors, garbage cans overflowing with garbage, paint buckets, just trash all over the place. Not only is this an eyesore, but this is a serious health hazard a there is trash everywhere and it is attracting rodents. Absolutely fed up as the neighbors have reported the condition of this home before and nothing happened. Can someone please help to clean up this property by removing the trash and the graffiti?????

  • 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.

  • 3299-3499 Collins Road Lansing, MI - Michigan State University
    The right side of Collins road from Dunkle to Forest has a seam/crack running most of the way that needs filling. The seam has no impact on auto traffic, however for those of us that cycle to MSU from work or classes, it is very dangerous. It is wider than a bike tire most of the way, causing tires to sink into the gap and causes riders to be thrown from their bikes. Please consider patching this, even if it is just the hot liquid tar filler.
  • 1118 Dakin Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    This property is a mess they hide their trash in all the leafs, not to mention the over growth of weeds, grass etc. Code Compliance has been called several times in the past 2 months and nothing is being done. What good is this site is it just to make people feel like they are being heard?
  • 3200-3298 East Kalamazoo Street Lansing, MI - Lansing
    I understand that the City of E. Lansing will be resurfacing Kalamazoo St. east of the bridge over the Red Cedar here; haven't heard anyone mention if Kalamazoo west of the bridge is going to be resurfaced which it desperately needs. The potholes and broken up pavement, particularly in the east-bound lane, are really bad from S. Clippert all the way to the bridge.
  • 400 Block Of Regent Lansing, MI - Lansing

    Someone from code compliance needs to visit the neighborhood. Some of us keep our yards/ houses in good condition. However there are many code violations on the block i.e. Trash, run down exteriors, unlicensed rentals, abanfoned house with roof falling in, etc. multiple calls to code compliance office gets no results.

    Someone needs to help!
