EAST LANSING, MI (WILX) -- The possibility of more skyscrapers in East Lansing has been put on hold.

The East Lansing City Council unanimously opposed a measure to rezone more properties along Evergreen Avenue. The properties were owned by the city's Downtown Development Authority.

The topic was discussed during a form public hearing Tuesday night.

The rezoning would have allowed construction of new buildings up to eight stories, or 112 feet high.
