March is Here! Time to Think Ahead!

As spring and summer head towards us, it’s time to start thinking about what you will do to engage with the community and with the City during the warm season.

Here are a few reminders about upcoming City of Lansing Events:

Neighborhoods in Bloom (May 20th)

Neighborhoods in Bloom is an excellent way to gather your neighbors for a beautification project in your community. The City of Lansing will provide flowers for planting in your neighborhoods, which must be planted in a public area, such as a sidewalk or road divider.

Applications will be available starting March 23rd.

LOVE Lansing Celebration (May 30th):

This is a FREE celebration of neighbors, neighborhoods, and local organizations held at the Lansing Center. Come out and celebrate all the excellent work you’ve done, and that you will continue to do.

Registration will be available March 23rd, and you must register in advance. In the meantime, you can find additional information here.

Walking Wednesday- Schedule Today!

Walking Wednesdays will be held throughout the summer as a way to display your neighborhood, connect with City of Lansing staff, and address issues that need City attention. Please contact Erika Campbell ECampbell@lansingmi.gov to schedule today.

One more thing….

In addition to these City-sponsored events, now is a great time to consider what kinds of events your neighborhood organization will hold or take part in this year. If you’re a leader, assemble your community organization to begin these talks, and if you’re a community member, reach out to your neighborhood organization to offer your ideas, volunteer, or give other support to the organization.

Feel free to reach out to the Neighborhood Resource Team to assist in planning, idea generation, or general support. Take a look at the City of Lansing’s Neighborhood Handbook (found on the City website) for event ideas and logistical reminders.

Happy Planning!
