LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Community College will move forward with its plans to demolish and rebuild the Gannon Parking ramp located on North Grand Avenue but will no longer seek to build a proposed five-story parking garage at the corners of Capitol Avenue and Shiawassee Street.
After careful consideration, community feedback, and support from the City of Lansing in providing more available parking spaces, the college can now put other viable options in place.
“Our goal has always been to be a good neighbor in downtown Lansing and create better partnerships with the community,” said President Brent Knight. “We want to provide ample, convenient parking for our students while being a good steward of the space we occupy. This solution works for all parties involved.”
In his tenure at LCC Knight has gone to great lengths to provide a wonderful learning experience for students that includes his ambient learning approach. Additionally, he has worked to create a supportive environment for faculty and staff. Knight has positioned LCC as an asset to the downtown area with a redesign of the campus grounds that includes colorful sculptures and lush landscaping.
The modified parking plan provides a win-win for all stakeholders and results from the development of stronger local partnerships and effective community ties.
