Lansing city council to discuss the future of an old golf course tonight
Lansing city council members tonight will discuss whether to ask voters to approve the sale of 12 acres of city park land for a future economic development deal. The mayor’s office wants to include the Red Cedar golf course as part of a multi-million dollar development along US 127.
The development is just speculative as this point, since the city has not settled on a developer or a specific plan. Bob Trezise is the president of the Lansing Economic Development Corporation. He supports making the land available for development.
“This is very neglected that shouldn’t be the way it is. Its many vacant properties. It’s a golf course that’s not a golf course anymore....nor is it even a park.”
The city council is being asked to put the potential sale of the old golf course on the ballot in November.
