  • 927 W. Shiawassee St. Lansing, MI - Genesee
    There have been multiple problems with the people who live at 927 w. Shiawassee st. There have been problems with the drug dealer who is living there. Drugs are being used and sold at all times during the day and night on a regular basis. The problems have started to run over into the neighboring apartment complex, 1001 w. Shiawassee st. There have been three different times were gun shots were heard going off at night in the parking lot of 927 w. Shiawassee st. There was a stabbing that took place there two weeks ago, and strange, people will park in the parking lot of 1001 w.Shiawassee st that do not live there to throw their trash, glass bottles, etc in this parking lot and purchase drugs from the drug dealer in the next parking lot. These problems are really starting to affect the tents that living in the neighboring apartment complex.

  • 1130 Riley St Lansing, MI 48910, USA - Lansing
    Hi! There is a street light on a pole that is adjacent to my back yard, it is in another resident's back yard. The street light shines into my backyard! The issue is that there are no streets for it to light, just people's back yard. I would absolutely love it to be gone. It is noisy and it is bright. Hopefully someone can help us out!

    Georgetown Blvd And Balfour Dr Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    Semi trucks and Delivery van trucks are using these streets daily and nightly for parking. Sometimes semi's running all night. Occasions that semi's are on the streets for days.
    In the last couple years you replaced these streets and they are falling apart already..
    Are these streets meant to handle semi traffic/parking?
  • Kalamazoo Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    It seems like this might be an annual problem, but now that the snow has melted, the bike lanes on Kalamazoo are covered in gravel and broken glass. This isn't just one location, rather it affects much of the routes heading both East and West. Could the street sweepers come get these safety hazards out of the way?

  • 1715 W Malcolm X Street Lansing, MI - Lansing

  • 4622 Donald St Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE PEOPLE!!!! I reported this over a month ago with no response still! They filled their recycling dumpster with garbage!! They leave the dumpster on the curb for weeks! The city doesn't pick it up because it's full of TRASH!!! The garbage is falling out all over the driveway and blowing everywhere! Now they are piling trash bags around the dumpster too! We were better off with this house empty and bank owned not being taken care of!!
  • 5030 Stafford Ave Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    For the most part it looks like no one lives at this house. But it looks like is is being looted. There is trash, dead branches, yard waste bags (that have been there all winter), trash cans, etc. No one seens to live there. Don't know who owns this house. But now does any cleaning or yard work at all. Please see what can be done to have this house clean up and prevent further blight in this neighborhood.
  • 1504 Michigan Ave Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    Originally submitted here:

    One month later and it is still a narrow walkway of ice, apparently an inspector had no problem with this. But as I fell this morning attempting to reach the bus stop, I decided I had a problem with it. This is exactly the way it has been for the last month, the ice has just been compacted because whomever's responsibility to clear it, has not done so. It is treacherous, and I am tired of climbing through it.

    The area is located in front of the garbage dump that is located between 1510 and 1504 Michigan Ave.
