People are not happy with changes to a long-planned housing development on Lansing's old Red Cedar Golf Course.

They spoke up at Monday night's public hearing in front of Lansing City Council.

The public meeting was all about the land on Michigan Ave. just past 127.

It is where developers say they are planning to build the Red Cedar Project, a mixed-use proposal that would include housing, retail space, hotels, restaurants and entertainment,

A public hearing on the development was met with support and opposition.

Some residents say they are concerned about an over-saturation of student housing, the fear of building on wetland, and plans for future flooding.

Supporters say the development will reactivate the space, bring jobs to the area, and attract the young workforce back to Lansing.

City Council is expected to vote on the development's Brownfield Plan on April 22nd, which will move this project forward.

FOX 47 will continue to follow the developments and let you know what council decides.
