  • Keeping neighbors informed about what’s happening in the neighborhood
  • Crime

Why would someone want to live in your neighborhood?

It’s a full of great neighbors that look out for each other. People that live in the neighborhood have lived here for a long time – there’s a lot of history here. The location is unbeatable (close to East Lansing, #1 bus, downtown Lansing/MSU, bikable, walkable, commercial storefronts along Michigan Ave, unique feel to each home). Overall it’s a very welcoming community.
