City to complete sale for parkland
Lansing Lansing residents are about to see the amount of city-owned parkland nearly triple.
The city is poised to complete a purchase from area developer Dan Sedlak of 128 acres of land about a mile west of the city on 4-H Road, City Administrator Mike Smith said Monday. After reviewing the sale contract Wednesday, Smith said, the city and Sedlak are expected to complete the sale early next week.
Smith said he would not comment on exact financial terms until the sale was completed, though he said the price was in the $600,000 range.
The Lansing City Council gave approval at its meeting Thursday to continue with efforts to purchase parkland.
Lansing currently has five recognized parks: City Park, Willow Park, Lost 80 Park, Highland Playground and the new Kelly Grove Park. Together, they account for about 76 acre of land.
