Notified About

  • 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.
  • 952 East Michigan Avenue East Lansing, Michigan - East Lansing
    The bike lanes along Mich. Ave., particularly in the west-bound direction, desperately need sweeping. There's a lot of glass and construction debris that's been piling up in addition to the usual road debris.
  • Other Open
    314 W Huron Street Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    This house is a rental and has been a blight on this neighborhood for quite some time. October 12th there was a drug raid with 10-12 LPD squad cars, guns drawn, children called out, house searched and a dog shut in the basement that is still there. This house is a nuisance house and the landlord should be fined and, at the very least, the house should be sold.
  • 411 W Madison St Lansing Charter Township, MI 48906, USA - Lansing
    300 block of Madison between Seymour & Walnut, 50' section is impassable.
  • 1222 Prospect Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    This seems to be an unregistered rental property. (since last September) It's supposed to be owner occupied based on the owner occupied covenant when it was sold at auction last summer.
  • Princeton Ave Lansing, MI - Lansing
    Despite what our state government thinks, Lansing needs a ban on unsafe, fire starting, exploding noisy fireworks. Done.
  • 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.
  • 100 East Michigan Avenue Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    many many cars are failing to stop at the stop signs just before the round about at michigan ave and washington square in downtown lansing.. i have almost been hit many times, and even asked a lansing police officer what could be done and he replied snottly,, "you need to take it up with the city"... can someone please do something to get them to all stop before someone gets hurt or killed here??
  • 100 198 W Saginaw St Lansing, MI 48933, USA - Lansing
    This intersection is a popular crossing point for Lansing Community College students and many other citizens, but there is no defined crosswalk.
    There should be a crosswalk connecting the northwest corner across Saginaw because traffic coming out of Washington onto Saginaw has to turn left (ideally, away from the crosswalk).
  • 1300-1306 Jerome Street Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    If Jerome is going to be promoted as the recommended bike route parrallel to Michigan Ave. (which it has been and is by many bicyclists and advocates in the area as it is a nice, quiet route through a lovely neighborhood) then this needs a safer, better engineered solution to allow bicyclists to pass through than the current circus tricks one has to do to travel down Jerome.
  • 428 Beaver St. Lansing, Michigan - Lansing
    Rental house w/ tenants who continually leave couches, old carpet mounds, moldy furniture & garbage overflowing on their porch, side yard, front yard & sidewalk. There was a dirty carpet mound out front for at least 2 months & this couch/porch garbage issue has been going on for over a week.
  • 900 N Walnut St Lansing, MI - Lansing
