East Lansing Housing Study


The City of East Lansing has engaged a team comprised of LandUse USA | Urban Strategies and CIB Planning to develop a comprehensive housing study. The intent of the study is to provide information about the City of East Lansing's  current housing market, especially the impacts of recent developments on housing demand in the area. The City of East Lansing is also seeking to answer some fundamental questions regarding projected trends to help understand the current conditions and assist in the future planning of the City in line with policy goals.  

A draft of the Target Market Analysis (PDF) was presented to the East Lansing City Council in April, with subsequent discussions occurring in May at the East Lansing Housing Commission and East Lansing Planning Commission.

Concurrently, City staff is working with the consultant team to review the City’s policies and, ultimately, produce a draft Housing Strategic Plan for review by the City Council, the City's boards and commissions and the community.

Links to draft documents will be provided on this webpage as they are available. Community members and stakeholders are encouraged to review the documents and provide feedback by attending any of the public meetings where the Housing Study will be discussed or by submitting feedback to City staff via this online form.
