If East Lansing voters approve a pair of tax proposals on the November 7 ballot, the resultant fall in City property taxes could have serious negative implications for various development deals. ELi's Alice Dreger explains.
The Downtown Development Authority has decided to spend $20,000 to hire a PR firm to try to help businesses downtown survive anticipated major construction from the Park District and Center City District projects. Why aren't those projects moving forward yet?

Lead developer for the Center City District project, Mark Bell of Harbor Bay Real Estate, tells ELi today, “Let me please be very clear, I am making no representations that should be mistaken as facts.”
