Come September, there will be no Lansing City Market and it's time to accept it.

The market, which had its city subsidy halved in May, can't afford to stay open.  And the city can't afford to let prime real estate along the Grand River sit unused.

According to the Lansing State Journal, the city does not have the resources to be property managers here and private development is a net positive if done correctly.  Plus the site is a great spot to promote Lansing's nightlife or simply attract more visitors downtown.
