Plans for Lansing Car Assembly Plant Buildings

By  | 

General Motors owns the property but has not discussed any future plans for the plant. Many area residents are concerned the buildings will sit empty for years devaluing their homes and the community in general.

United Auto Workers unions hope the space can be used to create new jobs by using it for suppliers or warehouses.

Lansing City Council member Carol Wood would like plans for the soon-to-be empty buildings soon.

Council member Geneva Smith represents the ward where the plant sits. She says there are many unanswered questions. She will hold an open meeting on March 9 at 6 p.m. at the Verlinden Elementary School to inform the public and discuss future options. She hopes to have a representative from the U.A.W., General Motors and the City of Lansing at the meeting.
