The former Red Cedar Golf Course is filled with overgrown grass and is largely abandoned.
In November 2011, Lansing voters approved the sale of 12 acres of the land and now, the city is getting ready to take the next step to begin what they call the Red Cedar Renaissance project.
"Now it's time to request proposals and see who's interested in purchasing the property and then proposing the development," said Karl Dorshimer, CEO of the Lansing Economic Development Corporation.
Dorshimer is leading the request for qualification and proposal process. Proposals are due by July 6th.
"We're looking for developers that have the financial ability to be able to get the project done, get it done on time," Dorshimer said.
On Tuesday night, the project team updated residents on the development and also listened to their input.
"I want to make sure they're very accessible and that the residents have access to the park and to the new businesses," said Lansing resident Maria Garcia.
"I would like to see people playing, I would like to see people enjoying themselves with a respect for nature," said Lansing resident Dwight Washington.
The possibility for what could stand on the land is still a moving target with just a general sense of direction for now.
"You could have retail, it could be office...We want to see a mix of development in there, not just one type," Dorshimer said.
The Red Cedar Renaissance project is also tied to a proposal to manage storm water runoff and revamp the rest of Red Cedar Park.
The project team hopes to decide on a developer by July 16th. The city administration will then negotiate a development agreement, followed by a public hearing and a vote from council as early as September 6th.
