Recycling a former home of Lansing's auto industry
Lansing area business and civic leaders say they are going to work together to market hundreds of acres of vacant industrial land.
The capital city region has more than 400 acres of land left vacant by cuts in the auto industry.
Bob Trezise is the president of the Lansing Area Economic Partnership. He says in the past the different local governments tried to develop the old industrial land separately..
"That doesn’t mean that anyone was doing anything wrong. Or even being necessarily critical," Trezise says, "But the fact is we were not working and efficiently together.”
Trezise believes the growing auto industry may be interested in expanding manufacturing in the region.
