SECOND SATURDAY VIDEOS:
Lots of relevant issues to the southside of Lansing (MI) came up and were discussed at today's "Second Saturday" meeting sponsored by City Council-member A'Lynne Robinson. It was held at the Hill Vocational Center, the site of yet-to-open Southside Community Center.
- Homeowner reaction to the opening of a new liquor store on the northeast corner of Holmes and Logan.
- Chemical spraying of grass on the boulevards and rights-of-way on Martin Luther King as a means to kill grass so money doesn't have to be spent to cut it.
- Reaction to rising tensions between some citizen commenters at Lansing City Council meetings and council-members raising concerns for public safety.
- A report about the "On The Boulevard" Business Association and their plans to plan southside community events.
I share this information as an interested citizen who lives in the southside. I have short video segments taken with my small Flip video camera. I was also limited in the number of questions I was able to ask to clarify and expand points. I will try to point out those information gaps as I come to them.
The videos will be on my "The Lansing Blog" and may be cross posted to my neighborhood blog.
I welcome comments and questions.
