02/02/21 - 60 wind turbines are being planned for in Southeast Ingham County by Apex Clean Energy. This could potentially impact 5 rural townships. Each turbine would be 650 ft. high, and combined, they could produce up to 300MW.

Demolition of Lansing Community College's (LCC's) Gannon Parking Ramp began on January 04, 2021. The plan is to take down the current structure and then erect a new structure on the same site, for a net increase of about 700 - 800 parking spaces. Construction completion is estimated for August 2022 (which seems to me like a long while for a parking deck, even with demolition activities and potential COVID-19 delays considered) -

Here's two renderings of the Montgomery Drain / Ramney Park project. It's a pretty cool, fairly massive, ongoing project by the County Drain Commissioner to improve stormwater mitigation in neighborhoods along the Red Cedar River in East Lansing. It involves daylighting the Montgomery Drain and bringing various forms of green infrastructure to the Ramney Park site. It will restore natural habitats and clean up the pollution in the Red Cedar River -
