Selection Meeting Schedule

The East Lansing City Council approved the following meeting schedule to review and discuss the preferred development partner for the Park District Planning Area.

After City Council selects a preferred development partner, the City of East Lansing would enter into a pre-development agreement to work through the due diligence phase which would include further project definition based upon market studies, public meetings, design work and financial analysis. If a desirable project is eventually deemed feasible, then the City would consider entering into a development agreement with the private development partner in advance of work starting.
