Dear Citizens of Lansing:

I am proud to present the Lansing Police Department's 2009 Annual Report. The purpose of this report is to highlight the
accomplishments of the Lansing Police Department over the past year. It celebrates the connections the department has
established with the community through the numerous programs and charities it sponsors and partnerships with local
organizations such as Polar Plunge, Police Athletic League, H.O.P.E. Scholarship Program, St. Baldrics Children's Cancer
Research, Safe Prom Initiative, Special Olympics Torch Run, Shop With A Cop, No Senior Left Behind, Senior Prom, Old
Newsboys, TIP 411, Movember, Lansing Can Food Drive, Board of Water & Light Chili Cook-Off, Toys for Tots and many,
many other community activities.

The safety of our City remains a top priority under my administration. The Department has effectively engaged the
community in the challenge of promoting safe, healthy, strong, and vibrant neighborhoods for the citizens of Lansing, as you
are the eyes and ears of law enforcement and an essential component in fighting crime.

Thanks so much to all the dedicated men and women of the Lansing Police Department, the Board of Police
Commissioners and the numerous citizens of Lansing that strive to rid our City of crime and make Lansing a safe place to
reside, work and enjoy.

Respectfully,

This is my final Lansing Police Department Annual report message. After 24 years as a Lansing Police Officer and 10
years as Chief of Police, I will retire on March 12, 2010. I have truly loved my 24 year career with the Lansing Police
Department and serving the past 10 years as your Chief of Police. Even though I am excited about starting this new
phase of my career, I am also sad about leaving the Lansing Police Department. Mayor Bernero, former Mayor Hollister
and former Mayor Benavides all gave me the opportunity to be Chief of the greatest police department in the country
and for that I will always be in their debt. After 10 years of doing what many would call one of the most challenging jobs
in Mid-Michigan, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every minute of it. I care deeply for the men and women of the
Lansing Police Department, the Board of Police Commissioners, and all the people who live, work and visit our fine
community. I prepare to depart knowing that plans and processes are in place to continue moving the Lansing Police Department forward, with leaders
ready, willing, and able to fill my shoes.

Together we have persevered and overcome with vast amounts of planning, training, and coordination as a result of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, making
our community safer in the process. We have been a leader in the Country on traffic stop data collection and training with each analysis showing, as an
organization, we do not practice biased-based policing. We started a scholarship program for the neediest children in Lansing and we were able to raise
over 3 million dollars in permanent endowment so these disadvantaged young people can attend college and avoid a life of crime. Our technology has
grown by leaps and bounds making us a more efficient and effective organization. We apprehended a serial killer who was preying on our elderly female
citizens and we took down a major drug organization with an operation that stretched from coast to coast. Together we have engaged our citizens in the
Community Policing Philosophy in a way that would have made Dr. Robert Trojanowicz proud and we have consistently reduced crime in our city.

There is no question that we have some difficult times ahead with the current statewide budget crisis. Even with that, I have every confidence that the
next 10 years will be as productive for the Lansing Police Department as the last 10. The reason I am so confident of this is because of the dedicated
men and women who work for the department. It is our people that make the LPD shine. No matter what the job is, we would not have succeeded
without a total team effort. The commitment to this career makes our employees unique as each of them could have taken their talents to another job
that was safer and much less stressful.

To the family members of our employees, please accept my heartfelt apologies for all of the holidays and special events you have missed with your
loved one because of this important work. I would also like to thank the thousands of citizens who have over the years volunteered their time and talents
to assist in keeping our community safe. I can say without hesitation or equivocation that Lansing has the very best and most engaged citizens to be
found anywhere. After reflecting on my 10 years as Chief of Police, I could not agree more with the above quote by Chief August Vollmer. This
profession is truly about understanding and showing care and compassion for your fellow human beings. I wish the Lansing Police Department and
citizens of Lansing nothing but the best in years to come. God bless and stay safe.

A sage from Captain Ray 44all


North Precinct bivigion
It was an exciting and successful year at the North Precinct. Once again, Part One crimes trended down while our
enforcement activities such as drunk driving increased. Other crime categories such as
drug enforcement and major crime investigations remained solid.

The dedication and professionalism of the women and men who work out of the North
Precinct were on display numerous times during this past calendar year, at events like
"Touch a Truck" which is held annually in the North Precinct parking lot and attracted
hundreds of Lansing families, and the Black Child and Family Institutes Annual Picnic,
where Jeff Winarski, the new Community Policing Officer, was introduced and could be
found dancing with Mayor Virg Bernero and other community leaders to a energetic hip
hop tune.

Officers at the North Precinct, such as Detective Michelle Bryant, continued to take a
leadership role in the Police Athletic League. Detective Bryant and many other North
Precinct officers organized activities that kept our precinct gym and conference room
abuzz with the laughter of young people being mentored by Lansing Police Department's
finest. Officer Phil Bailey worked with the Police Athletic League and organized Shop with a Cop, which proved to be the
most successful Shop with a Cop activity in our Department's history.

Sergeant Darin Southworth is just one more example of the spirit of giving back to our community that permeates through
the North Precinct. Sergeant Southworth was once again responsible for coordinating the Torch Run and the Polar Bear
Plunge which benefits the Special Olympics.

Officer Gary Masseau made his famous hot and delicious Chili for the 2009 Chili Cook-off. His "North Precinct Law Dog"
chili was the rave at this well attended event. When it comes to volunteering their own time and giving back to their
community, chances are those individuals work at the North Precinct. At the North Precinct, it is not a motto to give back;
it is a way of life. It is our philanthropic strategy to involve as many officers as possible in giving back to the community,
because we are convinced that doing so not only benefits the people we serve, but also benefits the individual officer and
creates a positive culture here at the Lansing Police Department. As the precinct commander, serving out of the North
Precinct for the past seven years, there are few things that I take more pride in than serving with the quality of women and
men who pin their badges on their uniforms with pride and professionalism. These fine officers place their lives on the line
without the slightest hesitation because they are committed to serving the good folks here in our community. I often get
asked, "Why is it your officers are so motivated and positive?" I can't help but think of a quote from Benjamin Franklin that
says "It is the workinq man who is the happy man. It is the idle man who is the miserable man." A lot of good work was
accomplished in 2009 and we are committed to doing even more in 2010. Captain Ray Hall can be reached by mail to

The Lansing Police Department South Precinct celebrated a fantastic year. The year was
highlighted by an 8.5% reduction of Part One crimes in South Lansing, the addition of one
community policing officer and the increase of our Neighborhood Watch by twenty seven
watches.

Our successes this year have been the result of many people doing many things right.
South Precinct is fortunate to have community members fostering a culture of getting
involved instead of ignoring problems, and working with police as partners. This
partnership ensures South Lansing is a safe place to work, live and enjoy recreational activities.

The South Precinct Community Policing areas were increased by one with the addition of Officer Billy Windom. Officer
Windom is assigned to the Orchard Court Corridor and works a variety of hours. In addition to patrolling his neighborhood,
Officer Windom works with the Michigan Prisoner-Entry Program. He makes house checks on parolees when requested,
handles complaints against the parolees from citizens, attends meetings with the parole office and travels to Ionia Prison for
the orientation meeting with new parolees that will be returning to the Lansing area on the MPRI program.

Drug house complaints continue to be a concern of our community. The South Precinct collaborated with our Special
Operations Section and S.T.A.R.T. in executing 40 raids in South Lansing to resolve neighborhood complaints of suspected
drug trafficking. Our proactive policing efforts are designed to create a better quality of life for our citizens, visitors and
ourselves.

As we enter the new year we will be faced with new challenges. The men and women of the Lansing Police Department
are committed to facing these challenges in a manner that reflects the desire to deliver quality police service to our
community. Captain Teresa Szymanski can be reached by mail to Captain Teresa Szymanski, clo of South Precinct,
3400 South Cedar Street, Lansing, MI 48910, by phone: at 517-272-7452 or by email to tzymanski@lansingmi.gov .

Canine Unit
The Lansing Police Department Canine Unit is lead by Lieutenant Tony Nettles. The Canine Unit participated in
presentations for community groups, school children and service organizations. The Lansing
Police Department Canine Unit was formed in 1985 with three teams. There are nine working
teams and is one of the largest Canine Unit Programs in the State of Michigan. Canines are
available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, assigned to every shift. Each canine team is a locating
tool that is cross trained in utility work and scent work. Each canine is a German Shepherd, trained
in obedience, tracking, handler protection, building searches, locating weapons and evidence. Each
canine team is trained as either a Narcotic or Explosive Canine. The Lansing Police Department
has five narcotic canines and five explosive dogs. In addition, two of the canines are tactical
canines assigned to START. The Canine Unit also performs canine demonstrations for the schools

Crime Scene Inve5tigation


Crime Scene Investigation requires the application of diligent and careful methods by which investigators recognize,
identify, preserve and collect evidence. This helps determine what actually occurred during the commission of a
crime. The Lansing Police Department CSI Unit is trained in crime scene processing, the care and handling of
physical evidence, trace evidence, fingerprinting, photography, casting, and courtroom sketches. The investigators
handle all types of crime and accident investigations handling. Officer Phil Nardone and Officer Terry Blount cover

g pecial Tactics and Rescue Team (91011

The 1973 Crime Control Act enabled federal funding for police tactical units. The Lansing Police Department applied for and
received such a grant, allowing the LPD tactical team to be formed. From the beginning, the team was given the designation
as the "Special Tactics and Rescue Team" (S.T.A.R.T.) The mission of the team is to save lives. Since the teams inception,
that mission has never changed. It is accomplished by the application of specialized training, superior logistical support, and
team member dedication. City residents, the Department, and team members are proud of the job START does on an
ongoing basis. When the citizens of Lansing need help, they call the police. When the police need help, they call START.

A Me99age from Lieutenant Larry Klaus


$pecial Operationo Section
As the supervisor of the Special Operations Section, I have been honored to serve with
the officers of this section since 2005. The primary mission of the section is to keep
Lansing a safe place to live, work, and to raise a family.

The Special Operations Section confronts the difficult issues involved in narcotic trafficking,
vice, organized crime, and criminal gangs. Our primary goal is the aggressive investigation
and apprehension of dangerous felons in an effort to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Lansing. The men and
women of the section work tirelessly in an effort to discourage and apprehend individuals involved in drug trafficking, drug
house operations, vice offenders, prostitution offenders, gun traffickers, and violent criminals.

The Special Operations Section works with our law enforcement partners at both the state and federal levels in an effort to
enhance the prosecution of violent offenders in the greater Lansing community. The partnerships include the United States
Attorney's Office, The Ingham County prosecutor's office, The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, The Drug
Enforcement Agency, The Internal Revenue Service, The Federal Bureau of Investigations, The Michigan State police, and
local law enforcement agencies.

In 2009 the Special Operations Section collaboratively worked with the U.S. Department of Justice on the Project Safe
Neighborhoods initiative. In 2010 the section expanded their partnerships and will be collaborating with the School of
Criminal Justice at Michigan State University. The partnership was developed through the submission and award of
$299,998 through the U.S. Department of Justice, "Smart Policing Initiative" Grant. The Section will be working closely with
School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University and with our law enforcement partners in an effort to assist our youth
and distressed neighborhoods that are experiencing an increase in narcotic trafficking and housing related issues.

The men and women of the Special Operations Section on a daily basis perform exceptional work, in some the most difficult
and dangerous of work environments. As their commander, I could not be prouder of their commitment to their duty, and for
their service to the Lansing Police Department and to the citizens of this community.

The Lansing Policeoflor guard is comprised of volunteer


officers who have committed themselves to the time and training required
for the specialized duties. They are highly respected for their attention to
detail and precision in representing the Department. The group has grown
from an informal band of officers to a well-equipped and trained Honor
Guard Unit that is frequently called upon to represent the Lansing Police
Department.

The Honor Guard regularly participates in many community events such as


the H.O.P.E. Scholarship Program, Law Enforcement Appreciation Week,
the Memorial services which pays tribute to the 911 tragedy at Wentworth
Park. The Honor Guard also participates in the MI COPS Law Enforcement
Memorial at the State Capitol in May, attends the COPS Ceremony in
Washington D.C., participated in the 150 Century Parade, the Retiree's
Dinner and the LPD Awards Banquet. The most important function that the
Honor Guard performs is the attendance and paying respect to the families
and communities of officers who lose there lives in the line-of-duty, and
paying tribute to the deaths of retired Lansing Police Officers and their
families. The Honor Guard attended nine funerals.

To inquire as to the availability of the Honor Guard for a funeral or

etaff Services I)Ni9ion
Lieutenant Noel Garcia oversees Central Records and the Property and Supply Unit (PSU).
Central Records is responsible for processing and maintaining information on criminal
reports, arrest records, traffic reports, and traffic citations. Central Records submits crime
statistics to the state and FBI, train employees in the records management system, process
freedom of information requests, supply criminal histories to civilians and agencies,
fingerprint citizens for employment and licensing, seal defendant records as ordered by the
court, process licenses to purchase and gun registration, operate the department's AFIS
................... (Automated Fingerprint Identification System), examine latent prints from crime scenes, and
handle subpoena delivery. These tasks are performed by R. Davis, K. Lucas, W. Kim, J. Pierce, M. Cole, A.
Vanderlaan, and R. Shively.

The Department now utilizes an electronic traffic crash system allowing officers to complete accident reports in their
vehicles which reduces turnaround time for making the reports available to citizens.

Improvements in technology of our patrol cars have increased patrol visibility as our officers will now dictate reports and
complete accident reports while in their patrol vehicles. The goal is to keep officers on patrol and available for calls for
service instead of being committed to a desk writing reports.

The Property and Supply Unit (PSU) is operated by Sergeant B. Cantlon, Officer A. Berish, and D. Abercrombie. PSU
receives, catalogs, and stores all items of evidence. They also track and issue all Departmental equipment and uniforms. All
evidence items are bar coded and computerized for tracking purposes. The Quartermaster Unit is currently tracking
approximately 130,000 pieces of evidence in its system. Of that number, approximately 38,000 of those items are active. In
2009, 9,681 items were added to the system and 5,421 were returned or destroyed.

RE: Z-6-2010, Regent & Leslie Streets


Rezoning from "B" Residential District to "DM-1" Residential District

Dear Mayor Bernero:

The Lansing Planning Board, at its regular meeting held on August 4, 2010, voted (5-0) to
recommend approval of the request by David Muylle to rezone the properties at 124, 126, 130 & 134
Regent Street & 127, 131, 135, 139 & 141 Leslie Street from "B" Residential to "DM-1" Residential.
The purpose of the rezoning is to allow the applicant to combine all of the lots and create a planned
residential development that would consist of 14 condominium units. The existing duplex at 127-
129 Leslie and the single family homes at 139 & 141 Leslie and 124, 126 & 134 Regent are included
in the 14 units of the development. Seven new single family homes would be constructed.

The Planning Board found, based on testimony, evidence and the staff report, that the proposed
rezoning will have no negative impacts on traffic, the environment or future patterns of development
in the area. In addition, the proposed development is consistent with zoning patterns in the area and
with the goals being advanced in the Northeast Area Comprehensive Plan.

At the Planning Board public hearing held on August 4, 2010, the applicant, his civil engineer and
one other person spoke in favor of the request. No no other comments were received.

Following your review of this matter, please refer it to the City Council for its consideration.

ANALYSIS

COMPATIBILITY WITH SURROUNDING LANDUSE

The immediate area surrounding the subject property is comprised of a mix of single and multiple
family dwellings with commercial uses located approximately 100 feet to the north along E.
Michigan Avenue. The proposed development will have a density of 12.9 dwelling units per acre.
The properties that immediately surround the subject property have densities ranging from 9.9 units
per acre to 41 units per acre. Therefore, the density proposed by the applicant will be compatible
with the density that already exists in the area.

With respect to the layout of the development, the applicant is proposing to retain the existing
buildings that front along Leslie and Regent Street and align the new buildings with the front yard
setbacks that have already been established in these blockfaces. Since the proposed setbacks are less
than the required 20 foot front yard setback, the applicant applied for and was granted variances by
the Board of Zoning Appeals, at its July 8, 2010 meeting, to permit the setbacks as shown on the
attached site plan.

There is a 30 foot storm sewer easement that runs through the center of the property. Since
structures cannot be built over the easement, the applicant has designed this area as the common
open space for the project that includes a community garden and a greenhouse. The buildings will be
clustered around the common area in order to create an atmosphere where neighbors can interact and
take advantage of the shared resources.

There will be two parking spaces provided for each of the units. One of the parking spaces will be
covered and the other will be open. Since one of the goals of the development is to encourage less
reliance on automobiles, and with t he development located 100 feet for Bus Route No. 1, it is
recognized that both parking spaces may not be necessary. To that end, the applicant intends to
design the garages to that they can also be used for covered patios.

COMPLIANCE WITHMASTERPLAN

The master plan designates the subject property and the surrounding area for residential use with a
density of 0-7 dwelling units per acre. While the proposed zoning does not comply with the specific
land use designation contained in the master plan, it is consistent with the goals of the master plan
which is to concentrate higher density residential land uses near commercial corridors and major bus
routes so that residents can become less dependent on automobiles. The master plan also encourages
step down zoning patterns where the higher density residential uses create a buffer between the low
density residential areas and the commercial areas. As evidenced by the attached zoning map, this
zoning pattern already exists to an even more extensive degree on the east side of Regent Street.

IMPACTONVEHICULARANDPEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC

Given the volume of traffic that already exists on Regent and Leslie Streets, the traffic generated by
an additional seven units will be negligible. From a pedestrian standpoint, the site was selected
because of its close proximity to E. Michigan Avenue which is a commercial corridor and a major
bus route. The site is being designed to create a pedestrian friendly environment where the residents
can be less dependent on automobiles for basic goods and services and can easily access the CATA
buses.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

The site will be designed in the most environmentally sensitive manner possible. By maximizing
green space on the site, using pervious pavement and creating rain gardens, storm water run-off will
be minimal. Furthermore, the applicant will retain as many mature trees on the site as possible in
order to provide shade and protect the natural environment. The applicant is also proposing energy
efficient building construction and design.

The site was chosen, in part, because of its close proximity to the E. Michigan Avenue commercial
corridor, which is also a major bus route so that the residents of the development do not have to be
completely dependent on private transportation. Reducing motorized traffic will have a very positive
impact on the environment in general. Less traffic results in less pollution created by the greenhouse
gas emissions that motorized vehicles produce and less wear and tear on the roads.

IMPACT ON FUTURE PATTERNS OF DEVELOPMENT

The impact of this project on future patterns of development will be positive. The applicant's
proposal is to incorporate the new buildings into the existing development while preserving as much
of the natural environment as possible. Revitalizing existing neighborhoods through infill
development in the City of Lansing is essential to creating a housing market that can compete with
other, less urbanized communities in the greater Lansing area. Infill development delivers new
housing stock that also creates a multitude of positive social and economic externalities, such as
neighborhood revitalization, neighborhood reinvestment, slower suburban expansion, and the re-
creation of walkable, transit-oriented communities. The proposed project will hopefully serve as a
catalyst for other neighborhood infill projects in the City of Lansing, particularly in those areas
where public transportation is readily available and many convenience goods and services can
obtained without the use of a privately owned automobile.

The 7 new units will be designed to with zero thresholds and fully accessible which will support
"aging in place". Providing housing to individuals with special needs in a neighborhood atmosphere
and in close proximity to goods, services and transit is vital to the continued vitality of Lansing
neighborhoods.

SUMMARY

This is a request by David Muylee to rezone the properties at 124, 126, 130 & 134 Regent Street &
127, 131, 135, 139 & 141 Leslie Street, more specifically described as:

S 16.5 FT LOT 4, LOTS 5, 6, 7 & BLOCK 2 HUDSONS ADD, LOTS 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11,
ASSESSOR'S PLAT NO. 16

from "B" Residential district to "DM-1" Residential district. The purpose of the rezoning is to allow
the applicant to combine all of the lots and create a planned residential development that would
consist of 14 condominium units. The existing duplex at 127-129 Leslie and the single family homes
at 139 & 141 Leslie and 124, 126 & 134 Regent will remain.

The request will be compatible with existing zoning and land use patterns in the area and will be
consistent with the goals of the Northeast Area Comprehensive Plan. In addition, the project is
expected to have positive impacts on traffic, the environment and future patterns of development.

RECOMMENDATION

Staff recommends that Z-6-10 be approved to rezone the properties at 124, 126, 130 & 134 Regent
Street& 127, 131, 135, 139 & 141 Leslie Street from "B" Residential district to "DM-1" Residential
district, based on the findings of fact as outlined in this staff report.

Lansing, Michigan 48933-1236
JUL 26 2010
FROM: Carolyn Snow, Owner, 122 Leslie, 136 Leslie
PLANNING
D1V/ SION
SUBJECT: Public Hearing on August 4, 2010 regarding rezoning

I own 2 properties on Leslie Street across the street from 127-129 and across the street
from 139 and 141 Leslie. This rezoning will dramatically affect my 2 properties. One
year ago, in 2009, I met Dale Muylle and asked if he would be interested in purchasing
136 Leslie or possibly both of my properties. He told me that he had recently purchased
the duplex 127-129 so he was "financially strapped" because he was also restoring 141
Leslie. I am also aware that he totally restored 139 Leslie and was even giving tours (I
was invited, by Dale) of this property. In July, 2009, my renters moved out of 122 Leslie.
After nearly one year of solid advertising, I was able to rent this house in June, 2010. My
house at 136 Leslie was vacated by renters also in July, 2009. I spent 8 months of solid
advertising on this house and finally rented this house in March, 2010. I have owned my
houses over 20 years and 2009 was the first time that I have NOT been able to rent either
of these houses. The rental market in this area has declined in recent years and several of
the houses in this area have stood vacant.
I TOTALLYOPPOSE rezoning this residential district to "DM-1 " for the sake of
building 14 condominium units. I believe this would totally destroy the neighborhood.
The owners of houses on Leslie street who live in their homes have done an excellent job
of restoring them, taking care of them, giving them great curb appeal and being great
neighbors. We don't need condominiums which will "degrade" the neighborhood. I'm
certain that in this economic market, whether Dale is planning on SELLING or
RENTING these proposed units, there is neither the "buying dollars nor rental dollars " to
fill 14 units.
My other big concern: WHERE IS THE MONEY to build these 14 units??? He just
purchased 127-129 last year. plus 141 is a "work in progress." The City told me that there
is no City money or grants going into this project and that they don't know where the
money is coming from.
A few years ago, another "BIG DREAMER " came to the area and bought several of the
properties on Leslie Street, renovated them, rented them out then lost all of them. The
houses sat empty and the neighborhood began to go down-hill. I see the same thing
happening if the Planning & Neighborhood Development approve this rezoning. I'm also
told that the City "thinks very highly of Dale." Well, that's wonderful, however, it
doesn't make good business sense to approve a neighborhood-destroying financially
questionable project just because "he's a highly thought-of individual."
PLEASE DO NOT REZONETHIS PROPOSAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: Act-5-08, Washington Ave. Armory, 2500 S Washington Ave.

Dear Mayor Bernero:

The Lansing Planning Board, at its regular meeting held on August 3, 2010, the Planning Board voted
unanimously (5-0) to recommend approval of Act-5-08, the proposal to acquire a fee simple interest in
the Washingon Ave. Armory at 2500 S. Washington.

The parcel the Armory sits on is made up of three subparcels, corresponding to the separate property
transactions with the State (see attached survey). Subparcels A and B are covered by a reverter
clause, and Subparcel C is not. So the City would be able get the armory building and most of the
property back for free, but must pay the State fair market value for Subparcel C, which includes the
frontage on S. Washington and the back half of a storage building on the North side of the building.

The City already uses the building under temporary arrangements, but must acquire the property in its
entirety to use it on a permanent basis.

Section 208 of the Administration Code requires that the Planning Board conduct an Act 33 review to
evaluate the public interest of proposals to purchase or sell property. The Board reviewed the
proposal in accordance with its Act 33 review criteria, and found that assuming full ownership of the
Armory property is in the public interest.

The Board voted unanimously to recommend approval of Act-5-08, the proposal to purchase the
armory property in its entirety, including Subparcel C.

Following your review of this matter, please refer this case to City Council for its consideration.

Sincerely,

William C. Rieske, Secretary

Memo

TO: Planning Board

FROM: Bill Rieske, Asst. Planning Manage

DATE: July 29, 2010

RE: Act-5-08 - Washington Ave. Armory, 2500 S. Washington Ave.

This property is located west of Washington Ave., immediately north of Washington Park. The City
proposes to acquire full ownership for use as a City facility.

The City sold the Armory site to the State of Michigan back in the `60s, and the State built the armory
and used it for a Military Affairs facility. The State has discontinued use, and the part of the property
that includes the old armory building reverts back to the City.

The parcel the Armory sits on is made up of three subparcels, corresponding to the separate property
transactions with the State. See the attached survey. Subparcels A and B are covered by a reverter
clause, and subparcel C is not. So the City would be able get the armory building and most of the
property back for free, but must pay the State fair market value for Subparcel C, which includes the
frontage on S. Washington and the back half of a storage building on the North side of the building.

The State is allowing temporary use of and access to the entire property, but cannot deed the entire
parcel without payment. The buildings and grounds are currently being used for a number of City
Government activities; including, but not limited to:

• City Clerk Election Center. Storage of City voting machines and election supplies.
Offices for City Clerk for distribution and collection of absentee ballots. Training space
for election workers. Central tabulation of election results.
• Periodic training for Lansing Police Department, including acting as a host site for multi-
jurisdictional training such as K9 training
• Lansing Fire department training.
• Civic organizations, training and social service provider events.
• Tri-County police dive team offices, training and equipment storage.
• Storage of Fire Dept. maintenance and fire evidence, Public Service equipment and
supplies, Human Resources and Community Services supplies, and Building equipment
and supplies.

The planned future use at this time is for continued varied municipal uses yet to be determined.

To acquire permanent use of the building, the City needs ownership of the entire parcel, including
Subparcel C. Building a driveway access from Washington Park, and splitting off Subparcel C is out
x^. Please recycle "Equal Opportunity Employer"
of the question because it would result in an unbuildable parcel (the current subparcel C) which is
against code.

In 2008, Subparcel C was offered for sale at an appraised price of $44,000. A more recent appraisal
reduced the price to $22,000, making it more affordable and desirable.

Staff Recommendation.

Section 208 of the Administration Code requires an Act 33 review to evaluate the public interest of
proposals to purchase or sell property.

Staff recommends a finding that assuming full ownership of the Armory property is in the public
interest, and a recommendation that the City purchase the armory property in its entirety, including
Subparcel C.

RE: PRD-1-2010, Planned Residential Development Revision


East Village (Former Boys Training School Site)

Dear Mayor Bernero:

The Lansing Planning Board, at its regular meeting held on August 4, 2010, voted (5-0) to
recommend approval of the request by Creekside Asset Management to revise the approved Planned
Residential Development for the East Village development located on the south side of Saginaw
Street, between Pennsylvania Avenue and Marshall Street. The applicant proposes to reduce the
number of multiple family buildings/units and increase the number of single family detached
residential units, resulting in a total reduction of the number of units in the development from 177 to
125. The proposal will result in an increase in the amount of open space on the site.

The Planning Board found, based on testimony, evidence and the staff report, that the request will
have no negative impacts on traffic, the environment or future patterns of development in the area.
In addition, the proposal is consistent with the intent and purpose of the Zoning Code and with the
objectives of the Northeast Area Comprehensive Plan and the Boys Training School Development
Plan.

At the Planning Board public hearing held on August 4, 2010, the applicant and three residents of
East Village spoke in favor of the request. No other comments were received.

Following your review of this matter, please refer it to the City Council for its consideration.

principal arterial. The streets on the interior of the
development are designated as local streets.
PRD-1-2010 East Village Condominium Development Page 2

SPECIFICINFORMATION

This is a request by Creekside Asset Management to revise the approved Planned Residential
Development for the East Village development located on the south side of Saginaw Street, between
Pennsylvania Avenue and Marshall Street. The applicant proposes to reduce the number of multiple
family buildings/units and increase the number of single family detached residential units, resulting
in a total reduction of the number of units in the development from 177 to 125.

Background Information

The subject property is the former site of the Boys Training School which was a correctional facility
for juvenile offenders between1855 tand1901. Since that time, the property has primarily been used
for passive recreation by the surrounding schools and neighborhoods.

A development plan for the subject property, known at the Boys Training School (BTS) Plan was
adopted by the City of Lansing in 1992. The BTS plan was a result of extensive public participation
and dedicated work by a study committee that consisted of representatives from the city and from the
surrounding neighborhoods and institutions.

In 2003, the City of Lansing approved PRD-1-03 which was a request by the Burton-Katzman
Development Company to implement the BTS plan by developing a total of 177 condo units on the
subject property. The approved PRD consists of 6, 12-unit condo buildings, 12, 6-unit condo
buildings and 33 single family homes, for a gross density of 7.2 units per acre. The property went up
for Sherriff's sale in June, 2009 and is now owned by Bank of America. The applicant has an option
to buy on the property, but would like to amend the approved PRD in order to modify the number
and style of the units. The streets, utilities and green space areas are already in place and very few
modifications will be needed to accommodate the proposal.

ANALYSIS

INTENT OF PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT:

Section 1280.01 of the Zoning Code states that the intent of the Planned Residential Development
Chapter of the Code is "to permit flexibility in the regulation of land development; to encourage
innovation in land use, design and type of structures constructed; to achieve economy and efficiency
in public services and utilities; to encourage useful open space; and to provide better housing
developments which are particularly suited to the needs of the residents of the City."

The PRD regulations allow a +developer to construct a variety of housing units at a dwelling unit
density greater than the density allowed in the zoning district if specific design standards are met.
These requirements address design issues ranging from building heights and setbacks to open space
and energy conservation techniques. The types of housing permitted in a PRD according to Section
1280.04 include:

* a one-family dwelling;
* a two-family dwelling;
* a townhouse;
* a multiple dwelling;
* an accessory building;
* a public park or playground and recreational facility; and
* off-street parking.

The proposed PRD complies with the intent of such developments as described above. Furthermore,
the applicant is not requesting bonus density for this development.
PRD-1-2010 East Village Condominium Development Page 4

EVALUATIONCRITERIA:

The criteria to be used in the evaluation of Planned Residential Developments is detailed in Section
1280.02(d) of the Zoning Ordinance. These criteria and their relationship to this request are as
follows:

1. IS THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT DESIGNED,


CONSTRUCTED, OPERATED AND MAINTAINED IN A MANNER
HARMONIOUS WITH THE CHARACTER OF ADJACENT PROPERTY AND
SURROUNDING USE?

The basic layout of the site with regard to street and green space areas will not change. The
proposal is to eliminate the remaining multiple family buildings that have not yet been
constructed and increase the number of single family units. This will result in a reduction
from 177 total units to 125 units. The density will change from 7.5 units per acre to 5.3 units
per acre. The amount of green space will increase by approximately .17 acres. As evidenced
by the attached plan, the changes will have no impact on the surrounding area as all of the
proposed changes are interior to the site.

2. DOES THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT CHANGE


THE ESSENTIAL CHARACTER OF THE SURROUNDING AREA?

The proposed development will not change the essential character of the surrounding area.
As previously stated, the changes simply involve reducing the number of units in order to
create more single family condos as opposed to attached or stacked condominiums. The
general layout of the site will not change and thus, neither will the character of the area.

3. DOES THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT INTERFERE


WITH THE GENERAL ENJOYMENT OF ADJACENT PROPERTY? .

The proposal will not interfere with the enjoyment of adjacent properties. The layout of the
site was reviewed as part of the original PRD approval to ensure that it was compatible with
the surrounding area. Reducing the number of units on the site will make the property even
more compatible with the surrounding area as a reduction in the number of units will result in
a reduction in the amount of traffic on Saginaw Street.

4. WILL THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT REPRESENT


AN IMPROVEMENT TO THE USE OR CHARACTER OF THE SUBJECT
PROPERTY AND THE SURROUNDING AREA IN GENERAL, AND WILL THE
USE BE IN KEEPING WITH THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT OF THE LOT?
PRD-1-2010 East Village Condominium Development Page 5

An increase in the amount of green space will make the site even more environmentally
friendly and will place a lesser demand on the public storm sewer system.

5. WILL THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT BE


HAZARDOUS TO ADJACENT PROPERTIES, OR INVOLVE USES, ACTIVITIES,
MATERIALS OR EQUIPMENT WHICH ARE DETRIMENTAL TO THE HEALTH,
SAFETY AND WELFARE OF PERSONS OR PROPERTY THROUGH THE
EXCESSIVE PRODUCTION OF TRAFFIC, NOISE, SMOKE, ODOR, FUMES OR
GLARE?

The proposed changes will not be detrimental to the health, safety or welfare of the
community. In fact, reducing the number of units will also reduce the volume of traffic
generated by the development which will have a positive impact on the area.

6. CAN THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT BE


ADEQUATELY SERVED BY ESSENTIAL PUBLIC SERVICES AND FACILITIES
OR IS IT DEMONSTRATED THAT THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR THE
PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IS ABLE TO
CONTINUALLY PROVIDE ADEQUATELY FOR THE SERVICES AND
FACILITIES DEEMED ESSENTIAL TO THE PLANNED RESIDENTIAL
DEVELOPMENT UNDER CONSIDERATION?

The site is already served by all necessary utilities.

7. WILL THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT PLACE


DEMANDS ON PUBLIC SERVICES AND FACILITIES IN EXCESS OF CURRENT
CAPACITY?

The proposal will not place demands on public facilities in excess of current capacities. In
fact, by reducing the number of units, the demands on the surrounding roadways and on the
utility systems will be reduced.

8. IS THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT CONSISTENT


WITH THE INTENT AND PURPOSE OF THE ZONING CODE AND THE
OBJECTIVES OF THE CURRENT COMPREHENSIVE PLAN?

The proposal is consistent with the intent and purpose of the Zoning Code and with the
objectives of the Northeast Area Comprehensive Plan and the Boys Training School
Development Plan. The "C" Residential Zoning District permits up to 11 dwelling units per
acre. The Northeast Area Comprehensive Plan designates the property for up to 14 units per
acre while the BTS Development Plan recommended a maximum density of 10.5 units per
PRD-1-2010 East Village Condominium Development Page 6

acre. The original PRD represented a density of 7.5 units per acre. The current proposal
would reduce the density to 5.3 units per acre, which is still well within the density range
being advanced in all of these documents. In fact, the proposal will actually make the density
of the subject property even more consistent with the density of the surrounding residential
areas which is approximately 6-7 dwelling units per acre.

The proposal will also be consistent with the report from the BTS Advisory Committee dated
April 3, 2003 which specifically recommended:

"That the developer incorporate design modifications recommended by the


Committee that would enable more single family detached homes to be constructed."

At the time, housing market conditions did not support this recommendation. However, the
housing market has drastically changed and the new developer feels that single family
detached condominiums are for more favorable to the current market conditions than the
multiple family condominiums that were originally proposed.

9. WILL THE PROPOSED PLANNED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT MEET THE


DIMENSIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE DISTRICT IN WHICH THE
PROPERTY IS LOCATED?

The proposal will either meet or exceed all dimensional requirements of the Zoning
Ordinance.

SUMMARY

This is a request by Creekside Asset Management to revise the approved Planned Residential
Development for the East Village development located on the south side of Saginaw Street, between
Pennsylvania Avenue and Marshall Street. The applicant proposes to reduce the number of multiple
family buildings/units and increase the number of single family detached residential units, resulting
in a total reduction of the number of units in the development from 177 to 125.

RECOMMENDATION

Staff recommends that PRD-1-2010 be approved to revise the approved Planned Residential
Development (PRD-1-03) plan for the East Village condominium development to reduce the number
of residential units from 177 to 125, as depicted on the plan dated 7-15-2010, based on the findings
of fact as outlined in this staff report, with the following conditions:
BZA #3959.10 130 Regent Street, 131 & 135 Leslie Street Page 7

• The developer offer a variety of color choices and avoid repetition in exterior design
and housing type; and

The design of the buildings adhere to the concept of traditional neighborhood design
with front porches as a prominent feature of the structure and garages less visible
from the street.

BY THE
RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF LANSING

WHEREAS, the City of Lansing (Employer) established the City of Lansing Public or
Section 501 Tax - Exempt Employer Deferred Compensation Plan Pursuant to Section 457 of
the Internal Revenue Code, a/k/a the Deferred Compensation Plan (the 457 Plan), effective
July 1, 1985; and

WHEREAS, the new collective bargaining agreement between the City of Lansing and
UAW Local 2256, Lansing City Unit, ratified March 8, 2010, (the CAB) provides in part for the
City, as the Employer, to match a participating union employee's 457 Plan annual contribution
of $250; and

WHEREAS, the existing 457 Plan must first be amended to permit Employer plan
contributions before this CAB provision can be effectuated; and

WHEREAS, the City, as Employer, desires to modify the 457 Plan by amending Section
4.02 and adding a new subsection 4.02g to conform to IRS Code requirements and to permit
Employer contributions to be made under the 457 Plan; and

WHEREAS, the federal government enacted the Pension Protection Act of 2006
("PPA") that provided for certain amendments to the Internal Revenue Code ("IRC") and
requires Employer sponsored 457 Plans must be amended to comply with PPA changes; and

WHEREAS, the IRC requires the City's 457 Plan be amended specifically to make the
following changes:
All required distribution notices (for example, Notice of the employee's right to
make a direct rollover to an IRA) had been subject to a 90-day maximum notice
period. This maximum notice period is now 180 days.
Distributions made to both spouse beneficiaries and non-spouse beneficiaries
are eligible distributions that may be rolled into an IRA. Distributions made to a
spouse beneficiary may also be rolled into another eligible retirement plane.
Certain Employer contributions (such as discretionary matching contribution)
made to the Plan for a year during which the participant is in "qualified military
service" are required to be made for the benefit of the participant's surviving
spouse.

WHEREAS, the City Attorney has presented the proposed 457 Plan amendments;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City, as Employer, hereby amends the
City of Lansing 457 Deferred Compensation Plan as follows, with the effective dates as set
forth:

1. Effective for limitation years beginning on and after January 1, 2008, the

first paragraph of Section 2.03a. is replaced with the following:


Normal Limitations: The maximum amount that may be deferred
under this Plan for Participant's taxable year (except as provided in
Subsections 2.03b. and 2.03c) is the amount prescribed under
Code Sections 415 and 457(e)(15) and the related Treasury
regulations that are incorporated herein by reference.

2. Section 2.05 is replaced with the following:

Separation From Service: The severance of the Participant's


employment with the Employer whereby the Participant thereafter is
not providing services to the Employer; provided, however, in the
event a Participant terminates employment with the Employer and
then resumes employment with the Employer within six (6) months
of said termination date, there shall be a rebuttable presumption
that the prior termination was not a Separation from Service and
therefore, not an event that, in itself, allows the Participant to
commence (or continue to receive) benefit payments under the
Plan.

3. The second sentence of Section 4.02a. is replaced with the following:

The Participation Agreement will become effective no earlier than


the first day of the calendar month following the date on which the
Agreement is executed or any subsequent date that is
administratively feasible as determined by the Employer.

4. Effective on and after the first day of the month immediately following

the date this Amendment is adopted, Section 4.02 is amended by the addition of the following

subsection 4.02g.:

g. The Employer may, in its sole discretion, declare a


contribution to the Plan. Any such contribution shall be in the
amount determined by the Employer's governing Board (subject to
the overall annual contribution limits under the Plan as set forth in
Plan Section 2.03 and Code Sections 414(v), 415 and 457(e) as
applicable) and shall be allocated to such employee groups as
determined by the governing Board.

5. Section 6.01 a.(i) is amended by the addition of the following paragraph:

Subject to subsection c. below, benefits payable under the Plan


may be distributed, at the Participant's election, upon the
Participant's Separation from Service; provided however, if a
Participant has elected to receive benefit payments on account of a
Separation from Service and his termination is then deemed to not
meet the requirements of a Separation from Service pursuant to
Section 2.05 above, then benefit payments shall not commence (or
if applicable, any remaining benefit payments shall cease) and shall
not commence (or if applicable, resume) until the occurrence of a
distribution event otherwise permitted under the Plan.
6. Section 6.01 b. is amended by the addition of the following paragraph at

the end thereof:

All distributions under the Plan shall be made in accordance with


Code Section 401(a)(9), the incidental death benefit rule and a
special rules requiring death benefit to be paid at least as rapidly as
any pre-death benefits and over a period no longer than fifteen (15)
years or the life expectancy of the Participant's surviving spouse.

7. Effective in the case of a death occurring on or after January 1, 2007,

Article VIII is amended by the addition of the following Section 8.03:

If a Participant dies while performing qualified service (as defined in


Code Section 414(u)), the survivors of the Participant are entitled to
any additional benefits (other than benefits relating to the period of
qualified military service) provided under the Plan as if the
Participant had resumed employment and then terminated
employment on account of his death.

8. Effective for distributions made after December 13, 2007, Section 12.01 is

amended by the addition of the following subsection 12.01e.:

e. The election described in subsection a. also applies to a


non-spouse beneficiary who is a "designated beneficiary" under
Code Section 401(a)(9)(E) and the regulations thereunder. Such
beneficiary may, by a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer ("direct
rollover"), roll over all or any portion of his distribution to an
individual retirement account established by the beneficiary for
purposes of receiving the distribution. In order to be able to roll over
the distribution, the distribution otherwise must satisfy the definition
of an eligible rollover distribution. If a non-spouse beneficiary
receives a distribution from the Plan, the distribution is not eligible
for a "60-day" rollover.

If the Participant's named beneficiary is a trust, the Plan may make


a direct rollover to an individual retirement account on behalf of the
trust, provided the trust satisfies the requirements to be a
designated beneficiary within the meaning of Code Section
401(a)(9)(E).

A non-spouse beneficiary may not roll over an amount that is a


required minimum distribution, as determined under applicable
Treasury regulations and other Internal Revenue Service guidance.
If the Participant dies before his required beginning date and the
non-spouse beneficiary rolls over to an IRA the maximum amount
eligible for rollover, the beneficiary may elect to use either the 5-
year rule or the life expectancy rule, pursuant to Treas. Reg.
Section 1.401(a)(9)-3, A-4(c), in determining the required minimum
distributions from the IRA that receives the non-spouse
beneficiary's distribution.

9. Effective for distributions made after December 31, 2006, Section 12.02 is

replaced with the following:

Written Explanation Rollover Eligibility Provided: Within a


reasonable period of time, not to exceed 180 days, in advance of
making an eligible rollover distribution from the Plan, the Plan's
administrator shall provide a written explanation of rollover
eligibility to the recipient as required by Code Section 402(f).

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that the City of Lansing Deferred Compensation


Committee is hereby authorized to pass resolutions, sign documents and take such other
action necessary and appropriate to effectuate and administer subsection 4.02g in conformity
with the Employer's UAW $250 match contribution pursuant to the March 8, 2010 CAB and
any other duly established Employer contributions made pursuant to the new subsection 4.02g
of the 457 Plan.
TO: MAYOR VIRG BERNERO

FROM: JOHN M. ROBERT JR., SPECIAL ASSISTANT CITY ATTORNEY

DATE: August 12, 2010

SUBJECT: DEFERRED COMPENSATION PLAN CONTRIBUTION AMENDMENT

As part of this years UAW contract extension, ratified in March, the City (as Employer) agreed to match
the contribution of a Deferred Compensation Plan UAW participant whose annual contribution is $250.

Before this UAW provision can be implemented, the City's 457 Deferred Compensation Plan (457 Plan)
must be amended to provide for plan inclusion of Employer contributions. The 457 Plan Amendment
must to be adopted by the City Council by resolution and then the Employer contribution can be
implemented by the appropriate Deferred Compensation Commission (the Board) action. At its July 8,
2010 meeting, the Board reviewed the proposed Employer contribution amendment to the 457 Plan, as
contained in a new subsection 40.2q, and concurs in the amendment.

Additionally, on account of a change in the federal law called the Pension Protection Act of 2006, there
are certain 457 Plan amendments that have been mandated for inclusion in such plans by the IRS. The
IRS requires that the PPA amendments be made at the time of the plan's next amendment. Because of the
Employer contribution amendment, the PPA amendments are also included in the resolution for approval.
The PPA amendments are mandated so the plan remains qualified under the IRC.

Finally, based on the experience of the City with the 2010 Retirement Incentive Program, there is a need
for clarity in the meaning of "Separation from service" under the 457 Plan. Consistent with IRS
interpretations in this area, the 457 Plan amendments also include a rebuttable presumption that an
employee who retires, but then comes back to work for the City within 6 months, did not intend the
separation from service as required by IRS to receive distribution under the plan.

It is requested that you forward this matter to the City Council for appropriate action and to implement the
UAW contract. If there are any questions, please contact me.

a. How will the state prison commitment rate be reduced or maintained if IOW as a result of the implementation of the plan.
Ingham County's overall 2009 prison commitment rate (PCR) of 11.1% continues to be significantly lower than the State's average rate of
20.6%. PCRs also remain lower than State average rates in all subcategories. The FY2011 Plan focuses on the continuation of policies,
practices and programs that have successfully maintained low PCRs. Probation supervisor review of all agent recommended prison
sentences will continue to identify and modify recommendations where local retention is appropriate. Priority target populations for local
retention will continue to be straddle cell offenders and probation violators, Ingham County's ability to control jail overcrowding continues to
be critical to successfully maintain a low PCR. Community Corrections, along with other criminal justice departments will be working with
Dr. Marie VanNostrand yet this FY to evaluate the pretrial jail population and to implement recommendations for reducing this population.
Education and training focused on increasing program utilization for targeted populations will also continue to be a priority.

b How will the use of the jail be improved as a result of the implementation of the plan
OUIL III, probation violators and pretrial defendants will continue to be targeted populations for reduced jail stays. Earned Early Release
policies will contiue, including day for day credit for inmate workers and credit for in jail program participation. Probation supervisor review
of all agent recommended jail sentences will focus on reducing jail time ; targeting probation violators for Day Reporting or repeat PRS
commitments in lieu of or in reduction of jail time. Efforts will continue to maximize utilization of the electronic monitoring program
(implemented in FY09) for use by the Sheriff's Office as an early release mechanism for work release and other sentenced inmates and
Pretrial Services; and, by using CCAB Jail Based Case Management Services to facilitate the timely transfer of all inmates (felonies and
misdemeanors) sentenced to residential treatment. Efforts to reduce the incarcerated pretrial will focus on working with Dr. Marie
VanNostrand yet this FY to evaluate the pretrial jail population and to implement recommendations for reducing this population. Early
releases pursuant to the Jail Population Management Plan will continue as needed.
c How will community`correctlon funds including residential;servaes) be Used'to meet your objectives
All PA511 funded programs, including residential are used for targeted populations pursuant to identified objectives for maintaining a low
PCR and improving jail utiliation. All programs, including residential services are used in lieu of or in reduction of incarceration. Treatment
and services address criminal thinking and criminal conduct, substance abuse, and add monioring and supervision for targeted populations
to reduce recidivism..

1- The proposed honorary street name of Cesar E. Chavez Ave, commencing at Oakland and East Grand
River Ave and ending at Pine Street and West Grand River Avenue. The Lansing for Cesar E. Chavez
Committee and the Old Town Commercial Association is requesting the name of an American hero
whose struggle for justice and equality for all Americans is well recognized and documented. He, like
Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa and others, understood the meaning of non
violent social change and used it to elevate the human condition. Cesar E. Chavez was a social activist
who founded the first successful Farm Workers union in American history whose mission was to reclaim
dignity, fair wages, medical coverage, benefits and humane living conditions for millions of Americans.
Cesar E. Chavez inspired millions of Americans and was a recipient of the Martin Luther King Jr. Peace
Prize and also awarded the presidential Medal of Freedom America's highest civilian honor. His
philosophy, "Si se Puede" or "Yes we can," influenced millions of Americans to seek economic and social
equality since the 1960's and that philosophy is still alive and well today. Cesar E. Chavez, a United
States veteran served in the Navy and served in World War II. His life was dedicated to advancing the
cause and improving the life of all farm workers and of all oppressed people in the United States and the
world.

2 -The effect of the proposed honorary name upon residents is very positive. We have found zero
negative impact and believe the honorary signs for Chavez will give an opportunity to raise awareness
about who he was and what he did. Other potential positive effects include the increase of commerce,
and in turn increased property values, in the area. The signage will illustrate that Lansing, Michigan is a
city that believes in diversity and understands the importance of tolerance and inclusion of honoring
Americans who have made a difference for all.

3 -The effect of the proposed honorary name upon business is very positive. We have found zero
negative impact and believe the honorary signs for Chavez will give an opportunity to raise awareness
about who he was and what he did, while limiting the proposed cost of a complete street name change.
The proposed additional signage will addresses three main concerns from Old Town businesses and
property owners. 1) It maintains the historic integrity of Grand River Ave. as a heritage trail and main
artery through the state of Michigan used first by the Native Americans. 2) The additional signage does
not demand extra cost or confusion for businesses that are currently within the proposed area or the
customers that patronize them. And lastly, 3) the decision to move forward on a combination of
projects to honor Cesar E. Chavez and educate the community has been an inclusive one. The process
included many meetings, letters, signatures, and heightened awareness and respect for what both
Lansing for Cesar E. Chavez and the Old Town community want to achieve for the greater Lansing area.

4 - Implementation cost will be minimal to both the City and business owners. Maximum cost for sign
toppers for the 28 signs along the proposed section of Grand River Avenue is $100 each.

5 - In terms of anticipated support, each day citizens of Lansing and organizations continue to express
great support of a visible and honorable memorial for Cesar E. Chavez. A variety of local organizations
and stakeholders have clearly stated their support of both honorary street signs and Cesar E. Chavez
Plaza. This project will unite many of the citizens of Lansing to work together for the betterment of the
City of Lansing using Old Town as a vehicle to unify.

2 -The effect of the proposed plaza upon residents is very positive. We have found zero negative
impact and believe the signage and educational information throughout the plaza in honor of Chavez
will give an opportunity to raise awareness about who he was and what he did. Other potential positive
effects include the increase of commerce, and in turn increased property values, in the area. The Plaza
will give residents and stakeholders a safe and welcoming area to gather and celebrate the power of
community. The signage will illustrate that Lansing, Michigan is a city that believes in diversity and
understands the importance of tolerance and inclusion of honoring Americans who have made a
difference for all.

3 -The effect of the proposed plaza upon business is very positive. We have found zero negative impact
and believe the signage and educational information throughout the plaza in honor of Chavez will give
an opportunity to raise awareness about who he was and what he did. Currently, the lot in the heart of
Lansing's culture and arts district is the stage for over 111 festivals and events attracting 125,000 people
and $146,000 in advertising. The plaza has acted as a gathering place for events celebrating the history
and diversity of Lansing and will now be named after a man that recognized the power of community.
The process in which this memorial was decided included many meetings, letters, signatures, and
heightened awareness and respect for what both Lansing for Cesar E. Chavez and the Old Town
community want to achieve for the greater Lansing area.

4- Implementation cost will be minimal to both the City and business owners. All improvements to
Cesar E. Chavez Plaza will be privately funded including archways, statues, gardens and educational
plaques. Lansing for Cesar Chavez will act as the fiduciary arm of the partnership while both Old Town

1
Commercial Association and Lansing for Cesar Chavez volunteers will donate time and resources to
make the memorial a reality.

5 In terms of anticipated support, each day citizens of Lansing and organizations continue to express
great support of a visible and honorable memorial for Cesar Chavez. A variety of local organizations and
stakeholders have clearly stated their support of both honorary street signs and Cesar E. Chavez Plaza.
This project will unite many of the citizens of Lansing to work together for the betterment of the City of
