Lansing Mayor Looking to Sell City Market Land
The Lansing City Market, which sits along the eastern bank of the Grand River between East Ottawa and East Shiawassee streets, has struggled to attract visitors.
Lansing Mayor Andy Schor is looking to City Council to see if the land City Market is on can be sold.
Under Lansing's city charter, the city needs voter approval before selling park land.
Schor said the waterfront property is key to revitalizing Lansing's riverfront. City Council voted in May to slash the city's annual subsidy to the market from $80,000 to $40,000. Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
