Those hoping Towne Center would be home to a Target received disappointing news recently when it was announced the retailer would open a store in the Legends shopping center in Kansas City, Kan.
It's a disappointment also to those at City Hall who had hoped for Target in Lansing's development crown jewel. That won't be the case now, with a Target opening just down the road.
The jewel continues to sit empty.
Word from City Hall is that ground will be broken soon on one of the two banks that has announced plans to build in Towne Center. While waiting for that to happen, city leaders should reassess and redouble their efforts to get more going in to the center.
To do otherwise is to invite more disappointment (from) down the road.
