LETTER FROM THE

MAYOR Welcome to Metro Lansing Living, our new, citywide publication combines the Lansing Parks and Recreation Activities Guide and the Capital Area Recycling and Trash (CART) Greensheet, as well as other essential information and event details. In this Winter/Spring 2018 issue, you will find a listing of diverse and exciting classes and programs offered by the Lansing Parks and Recreation Department (Jan. - May), CART updates, snow removal information from the Public Service Department, Mobile Food Pantry details from the Human Relations and Community Services Department, and much more! ii

It has been an honor to serve as your mayor for these past 12 years, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for being a HUGE part of our city’s success. We fought our way through the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. We made our downtown “alive after 5:00,” again. We brought new vibrancy and vitality to our neighborhoods and commercial corridors. We brought in more than $2.4 billion in new investments that helped us create and retain over 12,500 jobs in our city. We made city government more efficient and more accountable to its citizens. We prioritized public safety and made Lansing a welcoming city for all. We made the tough decisions – and the

strategic ones – that helped put Lansing back on the map, and back on the path to prosperity. Today, the state of our city is strong — “Lansing Strong” — and we are growing stronger by the day.   Thank you for joining me in making Lansing a great place to live, work and play. With your continued help, Lansing is well on the way to becoming one of the Midwest’s great capital cities!

Virg Bernero, Mayor

IN CASE OF SEVERE WEATHER What you can do

During the winter months, it’s critical for community residents to know the best course of action in preparing for and enduring severe weather. A “severe” winter, to the public, is any weather event that disrupts daily necessities such as power, normal travel options or communication outlets, and they may cause someone to stay homebound for protracted periods of time, whether for hours or days.

three-day supply of water and three days of food that can be prepared without electricity.”

The Emergency Management Division of Lansing works closely with the National Weather Service and local meteorologists to evaluate potential storms and their effects on the Greater Lansing community. They help people prepare before an event, facilitate response during and help coordinate recovery after the fact.

“Everbridge is the direct communication link from the city of Lansing and Emergency Management to the citizens,” said Tobin. “It is a solid platform for quick and accurate information sharing — 24/7/365 — about severe weather, emergency evacuations, important community information and any critical information sharing.”

While 911 and 211 — a lesser known number with operators specially trained to connect residents with local resources — are important to know, residents should also take steps to prepare themselves and their families.

While there is an abundance of resources for community residents to take advantage of, Tobin emphasizes the significance one can find in thinking ahead and thinking clearly in any unpredictable situation.

“The most important thing that people can do is think or talk in advance about how a winter storm or other emergency would affect their family and their home,” said Chief Michael Tobin, PEM, Emergency Management chief for the City of Lansing.

“The biggest mistake people make is not understanding how much disaster changes things. You may not have access to services that you take for granted every day — ATMs, gas stations or even 911,” said Tobin. “When you’re prepared, you’re less stressed when something goes wrong. People who are less stressed are better able to make decisions.”

Tobin has been with the Lansing Fire Department since 1998, and he works closely in his current role with local, state and federal agencies, along with numerous non-governmental organizations and private businesses. “When they do that, they answer the question, ‘What should I have in an emergency kit?’” said Tobin. “At a minimum, every household should have flashlights, a battery-powered radio, a 4

MOBILE FOOD PANTRY

FEEDS LANSING The City of Lansing Human Relations and Community Services Department and the Greater Lansing Food Bank are proud to provide the Mobile Food Pantry! The Mobile Food Pantry distributes free, fresh, non-perishable food items to members of the community that are under served including the disadvantaged and vulnerable, senior citizens on fixed incomes and families or individuals with limited or low-income jobs. All participants must bring a valid state identification card or driver’s license. A box or bag is helpful for all participants to make it easier to carry provided food.

Additionally, during the holiday season the Mobile Food Pantry supports the homeless and veteran populations by providing much needed resources! The program has

become a crucial part of the community providing options to community members and families that struggle to make ends meet. Fresh, nutritious options are not always available to those in the community and the Mobile Food Pantry works to make these resources accessible.

Volunteers are always appreciated and the public can provide non-perishable items to the pantry including canned beans, fish, fruit juice, meats, peanut butter, rice and soup. If you have food to share it’s a great way to give back this holiday season. For more information on the Mobile Food Pantry or to find the next date and location, please visit lansingmi.gov/ mobilefoodpantry or call the Lansing Human Relations and Community Services Department at (517) 483-4477. lan sin gmi.gov/parks | WIN T E R/SPRIN G 201 8 |

The Board of Water & Light will arrange for older, working appliances to be picked up for FREE for recycling, and you’ll get a rebate check. Call (800) 573-3503 to schedule your pickup today.

FOG

FATS, OIL, GREASE Pipes blocked by grease are a common cause of sewer back ups. Sewer backups can damage homes and property, cause health issues and threaten the environment. You can help prevent backups by properly disposing of household cooking fats, oils and grease (FOG).

DO NOT pour grease and oil down the drain Properly dispose of FOG!

By putting fats, oils and grease down the drain ...

FOG builds up inside pipes and can cause a complete blockage.

SAVE THE DATE

Clogged pipes overflow in your home and in the environment,

resulting in increased cost to residents due to repair and maintenance costs

RECYCLING & YARD WASTE COLLECTION

HOW DO WE PAY FOR THESE SERVICES? There is an annual fee assessed to all single family properties in the City of Lansing. The fee is currently $98.50 and funds both the recycling collection and seasonal yard waste collection. There are no additional fees to use the services. In comparison to other communities and service providers, this is an excellent value!

MDEQ grant funded program, Scraps to Soil, turns food scraps into valuable compost for local gardens Mayor Virg Bernero, along with representatives of Live Green Lansing, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), Sparrow Health System and the Garden Project, spoke at a press conference at Half Barn Farms in October. Half Barn Farms, a community garden, is the recipient of some of the finished compost, made from food waste collected from local restaurants and other locations through the Scraps to Soil project. Over 250 tons of food waste was processed into valuable compost by Hammond Farms.

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.

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.

CITY OF LANSING PLOW ROUTE MAP


SALTING/PLOWING

PLOWING

OF MAJOR STREETS

LOCAL STREETS

City crews will salt 144 miles of designated city streets (state trunk lines, major streets) and continue until snow accumulates up to 2 inches deep, then plowing is initiated. Please do not tailgate salt trucks, remember, they are tossing rock salt and are often driving slower than the rest of the traffic.

When snow depth on local streets exceeds 4 inches (not what fell at the airport), crews may start plowing the local streets as soon as state trunk lines and major streets are completed. Please do not “crowd the plow”; our trucks purposely drive slower and need plenty of room to push the snow to the curb. Use caution when passing a plow truck.

RESIDENT’S RESPONSIBILITIES Sidewalks

• The occupant (or owner of an unoccupied parcel) must remove snow and ice from the sidewalk within 24 hours after the snow has fallen.

• When ice forms on sidewalks you must spread salt, ashes, sawdust or sand on the sidewalk within 24

CITIZENS' POLICE ACADEMY

GIVE INSIDE VIEW OF LOCAL POLICE OPERATIONS For the Lansing Police Department (LPD), the public commonly engages the Patrol Division: the largest and most visible sector. But through the Citizens' Police Academy (CPA), Capital City’s finest showcases everything else that keeps the gears in motion. While emphasis is placed on the Patrol Division, CPA attendees interact with training, crime prevention and volunteer services, as well as specialized units, their equipment and more. “The Lansing Citizens’ Police Academy is a block of instruction designed to provide citizens a working knowledge of the police department’s personnel, work group functions and policies,” said Kasha Osborn, the Lansing Police Department’s community services unit officer. The CPA consists of a series of three-hour classes held once per week over 12 weeks, covering various aspects of the LPD as various division personnel conduct each instructional block. Instructions dispel misconceptions, eliminate speculation and increase the LPD’s rapport with its 40

community; the LPD, in turn, becomes more aware of public concerns and questions. “The Citizens' Police Academy welcomes anyone that meets the general requirements to participate in this program,” said Osborn. “We hope that those who attend can commit to the full schedule, be respectful of all comments and perspectives, try new experiences and ask questions.” If you are at least 18 years old and either live or work within the city of Lansing, you are eligible to apply for the program. Sign up for the next class slated for Jan. 25 by visiting lansingmi.gov/citizenspoliceacademy, as well as to access application documents, including the ride-along waiver form.


LOST NO MORE New wayfinding signs enhance visitors’ downtown experience Visitors from Greater Lansing and across the state now have a way to navigate downtown Lansing – new wayfinding signage that mimics those of larger cities like Madison and Indianapolis. The wayfinding system that’s in place now is sure to make the downtown area more inviting to visit, ease perceptions about the city and grant greater accessibility to parking so people will keep coming back. “It was time for the wayfinding system to be updated. We’d heard from a lot of people who thought downtown Lansing attractions were just Washington Square and the State Capitol,” said Mindy Biladeau, executive director of Downtown Lansing, Inc. “People would complain about parking, even though we have a variety of available parking options, people just have a hard time getting to it; or they would stress about one-way streets. Downtown Lansing has several assets and points of interest in a condensed environment that many people just don’t realize we have. The new wayfinding system will enhance the quality of life of our community while putting our best face forward to those who visit.” Downtown Lansing Inc., along with the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau, LEPFA, the City of Lansing and the parking office established four downtown districts and vehicular wayfinding signage throughout the downtown area late last year. In August 2016, the partners started yearlong planning process. Traverse City-based Corbin Design was hired to conduct a wayfinding and signage analysis of Downtown Lansing to evaluate the methods people use to navigate to and from downtown destinations. As a result of the analysis, it was recommended that Downtown Lansing establish four new wayfinding districts to help simplify and strengthen the visitor experience – Capital

Complex, Riverfront District, Washington Square and Stadium District – while reinforcing the existing REO Town and Old Town districts. A district is a large section of a city with its own individual identify that has specific destinations clustered within. The creation of districts helps build intuition into a wayfinding system by taking advantage of the way people are already giving directions using an umbrella designation to get to individual destinations. In addition to the unique names, each district is visually represented by a different color that will be used on all wayfinding signage and maps. Through efforts with branding consultant Arnett Muldrow & Associates, each district also has its own unique logo that corresponds directly with the naming and coloring conventions of the wayfinding system. Downtown Lansing and the new districts’ branding rolled out in June 2017. The wayfinding signage, including the vehicular and pedestrian signage, will be implemented in a two-phase plan. Phase I included the installation of all vehicular signs, and Phase II will be all pedestrian signs, slated to be installed by Spring 2018. lan sin gmi.gov/parks | WIN T E R/SPRIN G 20 1 8 |
