Lansing announces plans for new City Hall
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – The City of Lansing has chosen the location for a new city hall.
Under the plan, the seat of the Lansing government will move two blocks south to the former Masonic Temple Building at 217 S. Capitol. The move is supported by a $40 million investment from Michigan’s 2023-23 state budget signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer and is taking effect on Oct. 1.
“As downtown Lansing continues to transform and grow, we have a real opportunity to change City government operations, provide great customer service and access to local government for residents, and support the future of our City,” said Lansing Mayor Andy Schor. “I am excited to rehabilitate and help breathe new life into another of our historic, iconic downtown buildings and to make it an effective place for city services to be provided.”
