Council March, gala celebrates plaza naming refuses to reconsider




The name change was a long time in the making, and a festival Oct. 16 in Old Town marked the final stage of creating the new Cesar E. Chavez Plaza and Cesar E. Chavez Avenue.

They filled Lansing City Council’s chambers but couldn’t persuade members to reconsider approximately $4 million in incentives for the construction of Market Place. “We have such an opportunity,” said Summer Schriner, an Old Town businesswoman addressing council members Oct. 18. “Things have already been put in motion. “What you guys did last week ... Protesters it’s dangerurge members ous. I urge you ... please to ‘do the right do the right thing.” thing’ for The council, though, Market Place refused to project budge from the Oct. 11 vote. They voted 4-4 against reconsidering developer Pat Gillespie’s brownfield redevelopment plan that would have permitted incentives Gillespie said were needed to construct his $23.1 million Market Place. The mixed-use project was supposed to create an “urban village” near the new Lansing City Market on the banks of the Grand River.

The workshop is being held from 6-7:30 p.m. and advance registration is requested. The seminar details follow. Oct. 28: Help Your Money Make Money for You! Today, more people realize that they need a sound investment strategy to help achieve their financial goals — whether those goals include a comfortable retirement, a vacation home, a trip around the world, or a child’s college education.

Join in for an educational presentation where the class will focus on: • Five myths and truths of investing • Strategies that can help your money work smarter and harder • How to select investments that match your objectives • How to limit your exposure to risk by diversifying your portfolio • The benefits of professionally managed investments • How to help your money accumulate with tax-favored accounts The speaker for the seminar, being held at the Capital Area Career Center, 611 Hagadorn, Mason, is CASE Financial Solutions Financial Advisor Nicholas Nauta.

How it works

Anna Malavisi walked through the unfinished home on South Washington Avenue last week and almost couldn’t believe it will soon be hers. She already can picture herself and her three daughters there — studying in the living room, cooking together in the new kitchen, her bookshelves against the wall. “There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms,” said Malavisi, a Michigan State University graduate student and a single mom. “I can’t believe it’s going to be mine.” As of Oct.16, it was. Malavisi and her daughters are the 100th family to be placed in a home by the Lansing office of Habitat for Humanity, an international nonprofit that builds homes and provides mortgages for low-income peo-

To qualify for a Habitat for Humanity home, a person or family must make 30 percent to 60 percent less than the median income in a community. For Ingham County, that’s between $19,000 and $39,000.

Paquette said. “Despite the economic crisis, we’ve been able to grow. We used to build three to four houses a year. Now, we’re up to eight or nine.” Which they’re especially proud of given the ongoing housing crisis that has led to plummeting home values, a spike in foreclosures and a tight loan market. Habitat homeowners get an interest-free mortgage and must agree to pay on

Council: ‘I love Lansing’

Why choose Lansing Ophthalmology?

T-shirts donned by some Continued from page 1

The Oct. 18 council vote duplicated the previous week’s — with Brian Jeffries, Carol Wood, Eric Hewitt and Derrick Quinney voting against reconsideration, just as they voted against the incentives. Their vote came despite language in the 2008 sale agreement for the old City Market property that was supposed to become Market Place. It specifically states that the “developer and city each agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue all support available for the project such as brownfield financing (and) brownfield tax credits.” Gillespie has spent sev-

eral months debating with labor groups over “project labor agreements.” PLAs are pre-hire collective bargaining agreements establishing wages and other workplace rules. They essentially stipulate union wages for the workers. And labor groups turned out, as they did the week before. What was noticeably different were the audience members wearing “I love Lansing” T-shirts. Schriner wore one as did Matthew Penniman, a Lansing resident. “Lansing is in competition with the other cities in the Midwest,” he said, urging passage of the incentives. About 30 people spoke, taking both sides of the debate.

The council’s tied vote on Oct. 11 convinced some residents — Joe Manzella, regional programs manager for the Lansing Economic Area Partnership Inc., and Rory Neuner, a policy analyst for the Safe Routes to School National Partnership — to announce their intentions to run for Council in 2011. They rallied a campaign on Facebook, an online social networking site. That coming together led to the outcry at the Oct. 18 meeting. “We can’t play these games anymore,” Manzella said at the meeting, wearing his “I love Lansing” Tshirt. Of the “no” voters, all but Jeffries are up for reelection next year.

Brownfield plan for Knapp’s building renovation OK’d The Lansing City Council passed the brownfield plan for the renovation of the former Knapp’s department store to its development and planning committee. The plan would allow Eyde Co. to seek $4.9 million in Michigan Business Tax credits. In all, Eyde is seeking $24.5 million in incentives. The latest project budget, including financing costs, is $36.4 million. The East Lansing developer plans to turn the long-vacant building at the corner of Washington Square and Washtenaw

Street into a mixed-use building with retailers, office space, a business incubator, high-end apartments and underground parking. The council postponed a hearing on an application for a $2 million Brownfields Economic Development Initiative grant for the project. Eyde in August announced it had not received the grant but plans to reapply. Developers will likely wait to seek council approval until later this year when they have their application ready.

it for a certain number of years before they’re eligible to seek refinancing. “We started seeing our people getting refinancing approvals,” Paquette said. “We thought, ‘If these people can get a refinance, there’s a problem.’ We’re working with the poorest people. It was predatory, and we saw it coming.” At least one of their homeowners who refinanced ended up losing the house, family support manager Heather LaFave said. The Habitat homeowners who stuck with their original mortgages have been seemingly immune to the nation’s foreclosure storm. Only four of the families they’ve helped since 1987 have lost their homes to foreclosure, while in recent years defaults

have risen dramatically across Michigan and the nation. There were 915 foreclosures in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties in September alone. Foreclosures that month were up 15.1 percent over August, and are up nearly 38 percent from a year ago. The difference, LaFave said, is that Habitat doesn’t look at mortgages as a business transaction. It’s part of an ongoing relationship centered on a single goal: keeping families in safe, stable homes. “We don’t want to take houses back,” Paquette said. “That’s not what we’re here for. We will be in tears.” So will Malavisi, but hers will be the good kind. “I’m speechless,” she said. “I can’t express how I feel. I am so grateful to Habitat.”

Chavez: Honored Continued from page 1

a local business couple brought up the idea in August 2009, Reyes said. The committee originally set out to change the name of a stretch of Grand River Avenue to Cesar E. Chavez Avenue, but met resistance with Old Town businesses. Concerns were expressed over financial costs of updating business cards and print materials with the new street name and diminishing the Old Town brand the area’s been striving to uphold. Through meetings with the Old Town Commercial Association, the committee sought to have the plaza name and an honorary naming of Grand River Avenue after Chavez.

“We wanted to make sure the businesses in the area knew that we didn’t want this to have a negative effect on anyone,” Reyes said. The event started out with a parade at noon, followed by performances. Vendors also were on hand with plenty of food and other items. Emily Gonzales, 47, of East Lansing, said the festival represented the culmination of months of hard work. “This is historic,” said Gonzales, whose family took part in the boycotts organized by Chavez. “I was raised to support Chavez.” The committee is planning a Chavez celebration for March 31, in honor of his birthday.

Protect the Family Pet From Halloween Tricks Halloween can be frightening -- even dangerous -- for the family dog and cat. Pet owners should take precautions to protect their best friends from Halloween dangers that range from chocolate to burning candles to strange sights and sounds Nancy Semrau of Best Friends Pet Care in Lansing offers the following advice: Place candy out of reach. Chocolate is toxic for dogs: just one ounce can be life threatening for a dog weighing 10 pounds. And candy wrappers can cause choking. Have pet-healthy treats on hand to distract pets from candy.

irst Night Free Is Our Policy for each new Friend we make!


Put burning decorations up high. A wagging tail can knock over a candle or small jack-o-lantern, causing injury to the pet and the possibility of fire. Be sure your pet does not have easy access to Halloween decorations. Keep your dog on leash. Even well-behaved pets may suddenly run out an open door in pursuit of trick-or-treaters. It’s a good idea to have your pet wearing his identification tags, too – just in case he gets loose.

October 24, 2010

If you want your pet to wear a costume, choose one that won’t restrict his movements or cover his eyes. Be sure there are no small pieces he might swallow. Introduce it slowly, one piece at a time, and let him to get used wearing it before the big night. Some pets become anxious at the shrieks and shouts and constantly ringing doorbell. If yours is nervous, confine him to a room in the back of the house and check on him regularly. If you will be out for the evening, consider taking him to a boarding kennel, where he will have company and be away from the sights and sounds of the night.

New pet population control clinic to open LANSING — The Capital Area Humane Society (CAHS) will more than double its low-cost spay and neuter program to help control the area’s growing population of unwanted pets, thanks to a $80,000 grant from PetSmart Charities, the organization announced today. A new spay/neuter clinic will open early next year at 5919 S. Cedar in Lansing with additional support from the Humane Alliance, a network of low-cost spay/ neuter clinics based in Asheville, N.C. “We want to humanely

reduce the homeless pet population in Greater Lansing with a focus on serving pet owners with limited financial means,” said Julia Palmer, president and CEO of CAHS. “Difficult economic times don’t just create hardships for individual and families - they have a dramatic impact on pets as well.” Lansing was identified as a region in high-need of low-cost spay/neuter services based on the area’s economy, and homeless-pet problem. The number of unwanted pets and incidents of pet neglect have been

mounting in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties over the years, overloading local shelters. The new facility will allow CAHS to provide 11,500 spay and neuter surgeries annually, up from the current 5,000. Surveys suggest that nearly 90,000 companion pets (cats, dogs and feral cats) in low-income households in the Tri-County area have not been spayed or neutered and that nearly half of those live in households where the owners would prefer to have the surgery performed — if they

could afford it. The Michigan Department of Agriculture estimates that 220,000 companion pets will be sent to shelters statewide this year, and that slightly more than half — 114,400 — will be euthanized. Spay/neuter surgeries are a 100 percent effective method of birth control for cats and dogs. “We are working closely with other shelters and local veterinarians to save lives

and reduce the homeless animal population in Greater Lansing,” said Palmer. “As we prepare to open our offsite clinic, we are also planning an aggressive outreach campaign to heighten public awareness about the importance of spay/neuter procedures to both pets and the community at large.” The CAHS is seeking donations to help pay for renovating the facility that will house the new clinic. To learn more about this effort

or to contribute please contact Eric Langdon, CAHS’s director of development, at (517) 626-6821 ext. 42. Spay/neuter surgeries will be provided at no cost for those who qualify and where grant funding is available. In all other cases, the maximum neutering charge will be $25 for a cat, $75 for a dog. It will cost $50 to spay a cat, $100 for a dog. — From the Capital Area Humane Society
