Lansing City Council postpones Abigail vote

MONDAY, June 16 Lansing City Council will wait until June 30 to determine the outcome of the Abigail Building on the former campus of the Michigan School for the Blind.

Council will consider a plan to renovate the historic building to create 44 low and moderate income housing units. The issue was originally set for a vote during Monday's meeting, but it was not formally moved out of the Committee of the Whole.

Lansing City Council also unanimously approved funding allocations of $2,000 for the upcoming Men Making A Difference Youth Festival and $1,050 in funding for William Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors Charity Event on June 30.

Councilwomen Tina Houghton and Jessica Yorko were absent from Monday's meeting.
