    This house has had issues with rodents coming in and out of it also there was kids going into this dangerous house that is falling down no one would do anything about it so another neighbor had to get materials and secure it so no one would enter it's owned by ingham county land bank but our city should be able to enforce this since it's in the city.
  • E Kalamazoo St. Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    The conditions of the bike lanes heading both east and west along Kalamazoo are dangerous. The bike lanes are full of potholes, and the lanes are covered in broken glass, gravel, and debris from 127 to Pennsylvania. The debris could easily puncture tires and cause a rider to lose traction. The debris is so thick and expansive at some points that it obscures the bike lane markers. Having a bike lane in such conditions is effectively as good as have no bike lane. What makes this even worse is that there are no alternatives for biking between Lansing and East Lansing unless one rides on sidewalks or risks riding along fast-moving cars on busy streets.

    This dumpster is located in-between properties at 1504 and 1510 Michigan Avenue. It has been seen at this location directly behind the CATA bus stop for at least the last 6 months before starting to document it, where I have often seen a man emptying a hauling trailer contents into it. The garbage goes everywhere, he is careless and it is disgusting. Garbage and appliances are often on the side, around, and behind the dumpster.

    It appears to be nothing but a trash hauling operation located on Michigan Avenue. These are pictures taken from the CATA bus stop directly in front of it, and the same view you will see from the street. Found on Google Maps, an image before the CATA bus station was moved from the front of the Heart Center with the dumpster located in the pictures: http://goo.gl/maps/TCCXR

    Since there is no drive located where the garbage dump is located, the truck must drive over the curb to empty the dumpster. It is destroying the sidewalk. Is the owner going to pay to repave the sidewalk he is destroying, or the taxpayers?

    The CATA bus stop was moved in 2012, so this has been going on for almost three years at least, probably longer. A garbage dump leading up to the capitol of Michigan is probably not the best image for Lansing to be putting forth. Reported to city council member through email on 7/15/13. Premise inspector sent out afternoon of 7/17/13. That is the last I have heard. New pictures added since.

    I think it's time this is removed from the street leading up to our capital.

  • 1409 W. Kalamazoo St Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    The residential home located at 1409 W. Kalamazoo St. has been unoccupied for several years. The house was bank owned and eventually purchased. The current owners began working on the house, but have ceased work multiple times. The most recent work commenced late last summer/early fall and entailed digging a trench on the west side of the house to replace the foundation. The work has not been completed. There has been debris covering the front yard since then, as well as the gaping pit running along the side of the house, which is a safety hazard. Approximately a week ago an orange fence went up around the front yard to deter people/animals, etc. from entering. However, this morning I heard voices outside and looked out the window to find two children climbing in the trench along the house. I have attached two images to which show the children, the approximate depth of the trench, and in one photo you can get an idea of the amount of debris in the front yard. This is by no means an attempt to get these children or any child in trouble. I am just concerned for a curious child's safety. The condition of this home is atrocious and a safety risk to the neighborhood. I request that further action be taken to clean up the property and to hold the current owner responsible.

    Thank you,
    Maureen Nelson

  • Kalamazoo And Shepard Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    Doesn't change when you are waiting. It is common enough (although not always) that when you are on Shepard, both northbound and southbound, and arrive at this light, the little white walking man changes to the red flashing hand and then back to the little white walking man without the signal changing. Last weekend, I saw someone waiting and finally they drove across on the red (going S to N on Shepard) after this happened. Many times I have decided to make a turn onto Kalamazoo and go up one block after this happened to me. What's up with the signal box? It is routine to have a 40+ second wait for the light to change--even when there is NO traffic on Kalamazoo.
  • Kalamazoo Street Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    The Kalamazoo bike lane (as I imagine are all the bike lanes and shoulders within the City) is extremely dangerous right now. It is filled with a thick accumulation of dirt, glass, and other debris (see photo). The bottom of the downhill eastbound stretch right in front of Hunter Park is especially dangerous as it has collected all the debris from the street over the entire winter. Riding over that stretch at higher speeds from going downhill is extremely hazardous, especially because the parallel roadway right through there is laden with deep pot holes. Scary combination, especially if are not aware of the hazard before descending down the hill. I notified the traffic department about this problem area almost a month ago. Hopefully you can get out there to have it cleaned up right away. With today as the first day of Bike Month, it certainly would be appropriate and appreciated to sweep all the bike lanes/shoulders throughout the City. Thanks for looking into this.

    We noticed that someone used a metal wire to tie our elecrial qire to our front porch. We're not sure who did this or whether this is a safe set up.
