According to the Lansing State Journal, the shopping center at the intersection of Holmes and Pleasant Grove has seen businesses come and go.

A pharmacy, pizza chain,  and a grocery store, just to name a few. It's now home to a catering business, specialty meat store, a hair salon and more.

There's so much that has been going on in the past several months, that people are ready for a change.

So, by the end of 2020, a 5,000 square foot section of that parking lot will be redeveloped into a park like setting with trees, walkways and public art that represents the multicultural southwest Lansing community.

Organizers are calling it the Town Square. They are setting an example to move the area forward and grow it positively rather than letting it fall apart. Please click on the above link for more information.
