  • 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 Open
    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.

  • 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.
  • 1118-1132 South Washington Avenue Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    Someone (possibly during winter) ran over the median on South Washington in REO town, damaging the electrical controller and water valve for the watering (?) system. Additionally, two new trees were destroyed. Water is not actively leaking, but I cannot be sure that the system is working normally (I haven't seen the sprinklers on this year yet). In any cases, boxes and trees should be replaced.
  • 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.
  • 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.
