If you have driven south on US-23, you know that you pass through several communities along the way. While driving through those communities on a recent trip to Lansing, I was reminded of different comments people had made to me throughout the years that compared our community to others. Why can't we have a streetscape like that community? Why doesn't our downtown look like theirs? How can we get lighting like they have along their sidewalks? Why can't our businesses stay open as late as theirs?
