CELEBRATING 125 YEARS OF SERVICE 2018 marks a historic milestone for the Lansing Police Department (LPD), as it will celebrate its 125th year of service. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the department will be pulling out all the stops on May 5th at the Lansing Center. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the LPD invites Lansing residents to stop by Exhibit Halls B & C for their 125th Anniversary of Service event, which will highlight the department’s history through interactive experiences, displays, guest speakers, and other exciting programming. The department aims to build upon their legacy of community engagement by educating the region about its storied past and the ways they have evolved to meet the needs of residents. “We’ll be celebrating 125 years of service, but we’ve actually been around a little bit longer, since as far back as 1859; we became officially established in 1893 when we created a rules book to solidify our existence,” explained Sergeant Justin Moore of the Lansing Police Department. “Before then, serving the police was more of a political job but this really brought us into the modern day as an organized public service organization with a purpose to serve the people. The concept of community policing saw a strong start here in Lansing, one that’s been all about making our community a safer place to live over the past 125 years.”

L A N S I N G LI V IN G | lans i ngm i .gov

A time capsule of sorts, the occasion will give residents a glimpse into the LPD’s past and its evolution as a public service entity by showcasing artifacts from throughout the department’s storied history, including objects that date back to the 1800s, retired Oldsmobile police cruisers from the 1950s, archival footage from the 1940s and ‘50s, past uniforms and weaponry, oil-lit flashlights, and more. Residents can experience kid-centric activities and demonstrations of police technology, and even find opportunities for take a souvenir photograph. This family-friendly event is open to the public, including free parking and admission, and will be kicked off with an opening ceremony that includes remarks from Mayor Andy Schor, LPD Chief of Police Michael Yankowski and members of the LPD Board of Commissioners. In addition, a special Memorial Service will be held to recognize and commemorate all LPD members whom have fallen in the line of duty over the past 125 years.

CLASSES CHILL EARLY YEARS ACADEMY (AGES 3-7) The Chill SBC Soccer Club continues our relationship with Lansing Parks and Recreation and is delighted to announce the continuation of the Early Years Academy (formerly known as Instructional League). The program is designed to introduce male and female players to the game of soccer in a fun and exciting learning environment. The program aims to develop and encourage each player’s love for the game of soccer, improve each player’s comfort level with the ball with both feet, advance all players’ knowledge of the game and encourage competitiveness, work ethic, teamwork and sportsmanship. It will provide players with a fun and rewarding learning environment and works with parents to foster an understanding of the game and player development. The format of the program is simple yet effective. All players involved in the program will take part in one training session each week and one game per week. The training sessions will be led by members of the Chill SBC full-time coaching staff. During this training session, players will be guided

through different technical activities and fun games that will improve their comfort level and skills when they have the ball. All training sessions will involve players having a ball at their feet as much as possible to maximize the number of touches and develop a quicker mastery of the ball and soccer skills. For the games, players will be divided up into different teams and will play against one another under the guidance and instruction of one of the Chill SBC full-time staff coaches. During these games, it will not be unusual to see the coaches on the field with the players helping them solve problems or giving them ideas on how to improve. The cost for the whole program is just $60. This includes six weeks of six training sessions, six games, an amazing Chill coach and an Early Years Academy t-shirt! All training sessions and games will take place at the Chill SBC home fields of Hope Sports Complex in Lansing, hopesportscomplex.com hope Sports Complex, 5801 Aurelius Rd, Lansing, MI, 48911. All registrations and payments will be taken online up to a week before the program begins. Please go to chillsoccer.com and click on the CHILL PROGRAMS LINK and follow directions to register for the Early Years Academy. If you have any questions about the Chill Early Years Academy or the club in general, please do not hesitate to contact Hayden Welsh at Hayden@chillsoccer.com or (517) 303-2831.

GREENSHEET

PLEASE DO NOT CONTAMINATE RECYCLING! The recycling collected from Lansing households ends up at a material recovery facility (MRF) in Detroit. At the MRF, the materials go through a series of mechanical and human sorting lines until all materials are sorted, separated, baled and ready to ship out to recycling markets. This process works great for the most part, however, there are several common contaminants that get into the recycling loads that can cause problems at the MRF. Plastic bags and Styrofoam are both examples of items that people often put in their recycling bin by mistake. Other types of contaminants are wires, hoses and other “tanglers”. These types of materials get wrapped around equipment and cause machines to be shut down to cut them out.

MRF employees cutting plastic bags out of sorting equipment

NO TANGLERS IN THE CART

NO HOSES, WIRES,

CHAINS OR ELECTRONICS Tanglers catch in the machinery which is dangerous for workers. Check locally for how to dispose of tanglers safely.

Plastic bags

Please do not place plastic bags in green recycling cart, they cannot be accepted in the curbside recycling program. There is no need to throw them in the trash either, simply reuse them around the house or take back to Meijer, Kroger, Walmart, Target and other retail stores.

Hoses and wires caught in equipment at the MRF

Styrofoam

Please do not put Styrofoam in green recycling cart, BUT you don’t have to throw it away! There are several drop-off locations in the Greater Lansing area for foam recycling. DART Container Corporation (two locations) • 432 Hogsback Rd., Mason MI • 2148 Depot St., Holt MI • Open 24 hours/day, 7 days/week Impression 5 Science Center • 200 Museum Dr., Lansing MI • Open Monday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

SIMPLE RECYCLING CLOTHING AND TEXTILES ARE 100 PERCENT RECYCLABLE, BUT MOST END UP IN LANDFILLS! The city of Lansing works with Simple Recycling, a company that collects usable clothing, shoes, textiles and household goods for reuse and recycling. Lansing residents can set these materials out at the curb on their normal city recycling day. Simple Recycling provides special bags and tags to residents that must be used to set out these items. To request bags, contact Simple Recycling at (866) 835-5068 or info@simplerecycling.com. Please remember this is a separate collection from the Lansing green recycling carts. Please do not put clothing and textiles inside recycling carts.

PROPER DISPOSAL OF OLD MEDICINE The Take Back Meds Program is a cooperative effort among participating pharmacies, law enforcement and the Ingham County Health Department to provide residents with proper household medicine disposal. Visit takebackmeds.org for information on safe disposal of both controlled and non-controlled medication in Ingham County.

WHAT TYPE OF MEDS Prescription medications Antibiotics / steroids Cold and flu medicines Pet medications Medication samples Medicated ointments / lotions

WHAT NOT TO DO Flush down the toilet Pour down the drain Throw in the trash

WHAT CAN HAPPEN Pollution in our Great Lakes Adverse effects on wildlife Contaminated water supplies Prescription drug abuse overdoses Theft from home or trash

PROPER DISPOSAL Take to a local pharmacy Take to a drop-box

What Do Lansing Residents Throw Away? In the Fall of 2017, CART staff and volunteers sorted through nearly 6000 pounds of trash from Lansing households. The waste was sorted into multiple categories so that we could determine how much of the waste stream could have been recycled, composted or otherwise recovered. The good news is that nearly 70 percent of the materials sorted were actually trash. Where could we have used some improvement? About 30 percent (mostly plastic, paper, organic material and textiles) could have been recovered.

LET’S TALK ABOUT

ROADS Roads and other public infrastructure are critical to a city and some of the most visible components to residents, businesses and visitors. As an essential service, there are expectations for streets to stay safe and well-maintained, however, given Lansing’s current funding realities, how should priorities for roads established? Lansing Mayor Andy Schor’s inaugural “Road Map Neighborhood Tour” is a series of four road shows, one held in each ward of the City, with “Moving Lansing Forward” as the slogan. The tour allows residents to learn about the current condition of the streets and how they are funded, find out about upcoming projects, ask questions and provide input on how they would like to see road dollars spent. “We currently spend over 5 million dollars on road projects each year, yet we need to spend close to 25 million annually just to maintain our streets in their current condition,” said Schor at the 2018 State of the City address in February. “We clearly have a finite amount of funding, and we need to be strategic about how we allocate scarce resources.” Each meeting will begin with a presentation to provide information to attendees. The interactive portion afterward will include maps for people to draw on and comment cards for submission. City officials hope residents will depart knowing their voices were heard, especially when it comes to listing specific priorities that are important to them. “We have over 400 miles of streets in our system, and neighborhoods are a priority, but we must also maintain the main streets that are used by most of the traffic.” Said Kilpatrick, who will present with Mayor Schor and oth¬ers. “There has to be a balance.” 47

|

L A N S IN G LI V IN G | lans i ngm i .gov

The City rates streets on a scale of one to 10, with the current average rating being 3.8. More than two-thirds of the streets rated as poor and only with more funding for capital projects will the overall system’s rating increase. “If you don’t have infrastructure in place, you can’t do the things you need to do,” said Kilpatrick. “Without good roads, it’s more challenging to get around, and it will be more difficult to attract and retain residents, businesses and visitors.” Residents who attend one of the shows will walk away with greater knowledge about how streets are funded, the current and projected condition of streets and the role our infrastructure plays in supporting those who live, work and visit Lansing. “The current reality is that the effects of decades of underfunding roads at the state and federal levels are now obvious to everyone. We either need to figure out how to generate additional revenue to fix the roads, or the number of potholes and associated vehicle repairs will continue to increase. I don’t think that’s the direction anyone wants things to go,” said Kilpatrick. The series of road tours is completely open to the public. For more information on attending one of the meetings, visit lansingmi.gov/roads. Tour dates include March 19 at Letts Community Center, April 10 at Sycamore Creek Church, May 1 at Schmidt Community Center and June 7 at Foster Community Center.

FIREWORKS, FESTIVITIES AND SAFETY FIRST As the summer kicks off, there is no better way to celebrate then with family, friends and fireworks! While those celebrations can be fun, it’s also important that they are safe. This summer, before you head to the local fireworks stand, stop to make sure first that you fully understand the state and city’s laws for their use. The Michigan Fireworks Safety Act mandates that local municipalities must allow fireworks to be lit: • The day before a national holiday; • The day of a national holiday; and • The day after a national holiday For Lansing, the ordinance allows for the use of consumer fireworks on the day before, the day of and the day following a national holiday. This includes the 4th of July, however, fireworks within Lansing cannot be used between the hours of 12 a.m. and 8 a.m. on the permitted days.

Failure to adhere to these regulations could result in a fine of up to $500. Additional fines could be issued if fireworks are discharged while under the influence. Sparklers and low-impact fireworks are permitted within the ordinance. It is important to be cautious when using all types of fireworks — be sure to enjoy them in open spaces with limited foliage. If extremely dry weather occurs during the holiday season, it is best to limit or withhold firework use. Now that you have all the information, enjoy the fireworks and festivities, and think safety first!


LANSING NEIGHBORHOODS MATTER Neighborhoods are the lifeblood of a city. And, by keeping neighborhoods strong and close-knit, Lansing will continue as a great place to live, work, play and learn. Lansing Mayor Andy Schor believes strong neighborhoods are essential to moving Lansing forward. In fact, his first executive order was to create a Department of Neighborhoods and Citizen Engagement. Under the direction of Director Andi Crawford, this department supports the overall development of neighborhoods while equipping residents with the resources to promote quality-oflife activities. Here are several ways you can stay informed: • Lansing Neighborhood News – a weekly e-newsletter that’s distributed every Friday. • Monthly Neighborhood Roundtables – an opportunity for community members to connect with city officials and business leaders, offered the 4th week of each month: Thursday at 6 p.m., and Friday at 8 a.m. and noon at the Neighborhood Empowerment Center on 600 W. Maple St. in Lansing, MI, 48906. • Housing and Neighborhood Resource Summits – quarterly events bringing important city resources to residents; locations will vary. The next summit is April 24 at Pattengill Academy on 626 Marshall St. in Lansing, MI, 48912, from 6-8 p.m. • Walking Wednesdays - weekly walking tours in neighborhoods throughout Lansing. The first tour is April 11 in the Baker neighborhood and will run through October. Here are some upcoming events that embody the heart of the Lansing community:

Look for registration information in an upcoming Lansing Neighborhood News. May 12 & 19: Neighborhoods in Bloom Through this two-component program, flowers and planting supplies are given to neighborhood associations interested in beautifying public spaces around Lansing: • On May 12, neighborhoods off Pennsylvania Avenue between Mt. Hope Avenue and Haco Drive will be planting flowers in the boulevards up and down Pennsylvania Avenue.
