UPDATE: East Lansing land sale to go on ballot
East Lansing voters will decide next year if the city should sell land it owns downtown to the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union.
The credit union wants to construct a five to eight-story branch and innovation space at the northwest corner of Abbot Road and Albert Street.
City Council voted Tuesday night 4-1 in favor of the ballot proposal for the land sale.
The proposal will be placed on the March 10, 2020 Presidential Primary Election ballot.
The parcel of city-owned land proposed for the MSFCU building is approximately 13,000 square feet.
MSUFCU’s plans for the building include a branch office on the ground level, a community gathering space for public events/activities and office space.
