Communities band together on Michigan Avenue project

Leaders from East Lansing, Lansing and Lansing Township today announced plans to create a regional authority to promote and develop the Michigan Avenue corridor.

The authority, to be formed in the next two to three months under the state's Corridor Improvement Act of 2005, could take on projects to improve the strip's sidewalks, streets, lighting and other public infrastructure, officials said. The authority also could market the area.

I'm always felt that Lansing and East Lansing work very well together. It's good to see that regionalism works at least somewhere in Michigan.
