Notified About

  • 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.
  • 3400 Inverary Lansing, MI - Lansing
    Can there not be some manner of device permanent or temporary to slow traffic on Inverary. Each day I witness 20 to 30 cars clearly exceeding a safe neighborhood speed. From the intersections of Norwich to the east to Glasgow at the west there is not a single traffic control device or sign.
    Recently on a neighboring street, (Brisbane) the city placed the trailer mounted speed device, but placed it within 200 ft. of a stop sign. (a speed control device on its own) now how effective is that. Bring it, and a stop sign to my street before a neighborhood child is hurt or killed.
  • 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?????
  • 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!
  • 1310 West Shiawassee Street Lansing, MI 48915, USA - Lansing
    Illegal multiple garage additions and illegal porch roof and ramp addition. All are violating property line boundaries. Property is vacant and becoming a local trash dump. House should be condemd.
  • 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.
  • 1127 Dakin Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    Weeds and grass in back yard are waist high entire yard needs attention
  • Ceasar Chavez (E.Grand River) And Turner Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    This is a major issue for Old Town traffic. The holes in the road created by the tracks has created some serious problems with traffic. People slow way down or swerve to outside of lane to avoid tire impact. Is there anything the city can do about this or put pressure on the rail owner?
  • 128 North Holmes Street Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    The curb cuts on Jerome at this corner of N. Holmes make for a dangerous path for bicyclists using Jerome heading East - West to avoid Michigan Ave. Please add a more bike-friendly curb cut that allows bikes to move through here so they don't have to come to an almost complete stop to pass through here.
  • 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.
