MAYOR ENVISIONS

MORE IMPROVEMENTS IN 2019 Lansing Mayor Andy Schor reviewed the accomplishments of his first year in office during his State of the City speech Feb. 6 and took a forward-thinking perspective on the coming year. Schor, entering his second year at the helm of the Capital City, said progress begun in 2018 would have a larger impact in the current year. Building on his 2018 declaration of “Lansing’s time is now,” Schor renewed the focus on neighborhoods, economic investment, the downtown district, infrastructure, and arts and culture. He also addressed the financial health of the city, public safety and a poised a new declaration that insists Lansing is “strong and standing tall.” The mayor revisited one major initiative announced in 2018, Gillespie Group’s ongoing 600 Block project, which will bring a new hotel, apartment space and an urban grocery store to downtown Lansing.

“This one announcement checked three boxes in terms of needs in our downtown,” Schor said about the new development. Another key addition to the Lansing region is the arrival of a professional soccer team – Lansing Ignite FC – which begins play this spring. “The Ignite season will start in April, and I look forward to being at Cooley Law Stadium to cheer on the team in its inaugural season,” Schor said. During the address at Riverwalk Theatre, Schor also announced a new vision and plan for the city called Lansing 2030. He praised the city’s welcoming environment and the amenities it provides residents from all regions of Lansing. Moving forward, Schor said, the new initiative will focus on three areas: “First, we will leverage Lansing’s existing diversity and employment opportunities to represent our city as an ideal community to live and thrive,” the mayor said. “Second, we will focus on city design to improve the city’s public places – from roads to art – to ensure a welcoming environment. “And finally, we will diversify living option to meet residents’ changing housing and life needs,” Schor concluded. “Lansing is the most affordable city in the country, and affordability allows our residents to spend their hard-earned dollars on other things for themselves and families.” The mayor also built on last year’s creation of special commissions to tackle the needs of neighborhoods and diverse groups. In his speech Schor said the city would have two new commissions: the Inter-Faith Advisory Council, which will include faith leaders in decisions affecting the city. Another new advisory board is the Lansing Veterans Commission, which will ensure veterans are included in the city’s decision-making processes.

PLOTTING A ROUTE TO LANSING'S

TOMORROW The City of Lansing is putting its best foot forward, as it journeys to its next chapter.

Mayor Andy Schor referenced the city’s new logo and rebranding initiative as part of his State of the City address in early February. The new logo represents the three stacks of the Lansing Board of Water & Light’s Otto E. Eckert Station, drawing on the familiar beacons of Lansing’s beating heart while coupling the image in a modernized style that signals the city’s promising future. The rebranding effort lays out a road map for the city to navigate as it moves toward the increasingly bright horizon of tomorrow. The initiative serves as the mission statement behind the decisions and direction that will guide and inspire the city toward its next phase. The focus behind the plan, to make Lansing a more diverse, dense, livable, responsible and welcoming environment, is spelled out in more detail for residents and stakeholders at lansingforward.com; however, the overarching actionable themes driving the effort forward can be broken down into three specific categories:

COMMUNITY Lansing will recognize, support and celebrate its cultural diversity and inclusivity across the community. By building upon the area’s existing commitment to open avenues of opportunity for residents, businesses and educational enhancement will ensure Lansing serves as a shining example as a home to work, live and learn. DESIGN From roads to art, Lansing will focus on prioritizing its public spaces as well as access to those public spaces to guarantee that the city’s aesthetic appeal elicits a positive emotional response from both residents and visitors. LIVING A true community must be a safe haven to all levels of economic strata. Lansing will rededicate its promise to promote diverse housing options that meet the needs and demands of our current and future residents. At the same time, the city will maintain investment to preserve its proud and historic past. For more information on the rebranding and vision of the City of Lansing, visit lansingforward.com.

A NEW TEAM

FOR A NEW ERA Lansing Ignite FC is readying to bring newfound excitement to downtown Lansing this spring.

displayed its love for regional sports teams in the Lansing Lugnuts and Michigan State University athletics programs.

When Ignite FC hits the field this spring, it will be loud and clear as cheers, plumes of orange smoke and general excitement ooze from Cooley Law School Stadium and into the streets of downtown Lansing. The team is set to kick things off at its shared home with the Lansing Lugnuts, and it is here that organizers are adamant about creating a unique environment that personifies the energy and excitement you’d come to expect at an international football outing.

Aside from a handful of preseason exhibition matches, the league’s regular season will began March 30 with games set to extend through October. The entirety of the season will consist of 28 games, with 14 home matches. The team’s schedule is designed not to conflict with the 2019 schedule of the Lansing Lugnuts, which resumes play in early April, with most Ignite outings taking place a 7 p.m. Saturdays, though dates and times do vary.

Early adopters of the team have already begun creating fan support groups in anticipation of the club’s arrival – hoping to be by its side as the team pursues its first USL One championship. However, this season isn’t just the first for the new team and its fans; it’s the first for the league. ULS One is a an entirely new professional soccer experience that aims to create a platform for emerging stars to showcase their talent and one day elevate to Premier and international league status. Twelve teams, most of whom were specifically created to fill the league, reign from regions that the league believes exhibit potential growth and an existing community that is passionate about sports. Lansing was deemed a near-perfect match, having

This is an exciting time for the region in terms of opportunity. Lansing Ignite FC is poised to create new excitement for downtown Lansing and will inherently foster growth for area businesses and create an exciting atmosphere for post-game nightlife culture. Like the Lugnuts before them, the new team will revitalize the region by creating a new gathering space for football fans and sports fanatics alike. Tickets, apparel and more are available now. Learn more about the team, its schedule, its formation and how you can show your support by visiting lansingignite.com.

SUCCESS ON THE LINKS A GLANCE AT LEPFA’S FIRST YEAR MANAGING GROESBECK GOLF COURSE The Lansing Entertainment and Public Facilities Authority (LEPFA) took the reins of Groesbeck Golf Course last year, looking to breathe fresh air into a popular, long-standing regional golf destination. Since taking the role of property manager, the course has undergone a plethora of changes that have led to newfound success for the course.

The City of Lansing transferred management of the course to LEPFA in May 2017, and since then the management organization has surpassed its improvement goals for the course and reduced expenses for the city, while improving customer service and experience for golfers of all skill levels.

The 2018 season was one for the books as it marked new highs for course play, revenue and expense reductions. Last year over 21,000 18hole rounds of golf were played, resulting in $483,775 of revenue, while operating expenses dropped by nearly 40 percent.

Groesbeck Golf Course has received several positive ratings and reviews in response to the improvements and upgrades made in 2018. A new entrance and sign were installed, and an online tee time system along with a new bag drop/cart pickup method were implemented for a better golfing experience from start to finish. Repairs to sand traps, drains, the clubhouse and course signage also were completed, among other improvements.

“I took office after the Groesbeck Golf Course was placed under the management of LEPFA, and I said I would evaluate this deal after the summer to see if it is working. We have looked at the numbers and heard the feedback and have found that LEPFA’s management of the Groesbeck Golf Course has been a successful endeavor both financially and for golfers,” said Lansing Mayor Andy Schor. “Golf in Lansing is an amenity that we can provide to our residents and visitors and is part of the great placemaking that Lansing needs to continue to be a great city. Golfers have taken notice of the improvements, and I’m excited that Groesbeck will continue to be an asset to Lansing.”

Moving into 2019, LEPFA plans to announce a new way to experience the course during winter months; improve aesthetics of the on-course restrooms; increase food and beverage offerings; improve the course for increased safety and pace of play; improve irrigation systems; upgrade course maintenance equipment; and increase number of tournaments, leagues and other outings.

RECYCLING

COLLECTION SCHEDULE Recycling collection is every other week using a green or blue week schedule. Find your collection week using the collection day schedule & reminder tool at lansingrecycles.com. Save this Recycling Collection Schedule to make it easy to remember when to set out your green recycling cart. Holidays that affect collection service are marked in red. Collections will be delayed for those with service on the day of the holiday and the days after the holiday. For example, when a holiday falls on a Thursday, all Thursday collections will be done on Friday.
