Napagbigyang-alam Tungkol

  • Jay Street Lansing, MI 48933, USA - Lansing
    Sidewalk in front of Board of Water and Light Cedar St location has not been cleared. The sidewalk has a couple of inches of wet snow, which made it very difficult to pass. Would have been impossible for wheelchair users. Even worse, the plows that cleared their driveway and adjacent Jay St by the Nuthouse, piled the snow many feet high directly over the curb cut and sidewalk forcing people to endanger themselves by climbing over/around a mountain of snow or by walking in Cedar St. This is a very clear violation of the City's snow/ice removal ordinance.
  • 405 S. Grand Ave. Lansing, MI - Lansing
    Sidewalk on the East side of Grand River between Lenawee and Kalamazoo is almost impassible.
  • 4417 Lowcroft Lansing, MI - Lansing
  • 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!

  • 833 Irvington Avenue Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    The homeowner has a history of leaving the grass grow above 8 inches and when he is forced to cut the lawn he lets it grow again to another 8 inches or longer just keeps repeating the pattern he also has broken limbs in the driveway the house is an eyesore
  • 418 Allen St Lansing Michigan - Lansing
    Toys & trash constantly block use of the sidewalk, grass is uncut (approx. 8'' tall), trash, toys, and furniture are scattered all across their yard and spreads to surrounding neighbors' yards.
    This has been posted for nearly a year on this website, and still nothing has changed. The current tenants at this property treat their yard and neighbor's yards like a trash pile and are a nuisance to other neighbors, and the landlord obviously doesn't care. We've had to call the police non-emergency number nearly every week to complain about loud fights (and 911 in one instance of gun shots) in the middle of the night. It's very disturbing to wake up in the middle of the night to a yelling match in front of your house. I'm at a loss as to what to do.
  • 300 And 304 S. Clemens Ave. Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    The landlord who owns 300 and 304 S. Clemens Ave. has left trash, debris, appliances, and building materials sitting out in the backyards of these properties for nearly two years now. Season after season, I have watched these piles of trash and debris get covered in rain, sleet, snow, and bleached in the sun for too long.

    I am not sure if the landlord intends to build a porch out of the (now) 2 year old rotted porch pieces that he has thrown in the backyard, or what. He has continued to let them just sit there, rotting away.

    He began some work on the back off 300 S. Clemens, but has yet to complete this work. For nearly a year, a trailer full of trash and other debris has been sitting in the back yard, along with a smaller trailer. An old TV has also been sitting out there for the same amount of time.

    I have also seen these properties get temporarily sited by Code Compliance in the past, yet somehow this landlord manages to "fix" these problems and continues to rent these properties. Even while still "working" on the back of 300 S. Clemens.

    I would appreciate if the City would address this issue seriously and deal with it in a timely manner. Thank you.

    The family parks campers trucks cars in front yard blocks view of cross road, the also park the wrong way on road and up on curbs all the time
  • Prospect And Foster (Corner Of) Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    I've asked this question a number of times and never get an answer: Why does the person at the corner of Prospect and Foster get to park his truck and trailer on the street every night? There are others around town who do the same thing and I wonder if one can pay a fee for the privilege or do they have friends in the right places. I park on the street overnight once a year and get a ticket every time.
  • 1228 E Kalamazoo St Lansing, MI - Lansing
    The Kalamazoo St. bike lane is full of gravel, glass and broken car parts ever since the snow melt. I imagine the rest of Lansing's bike lanes are in a similar state. Scheduling bike lane sweepings immediately following the last snow melt will improve safety and encourage more bicycle commuting.
