A group of Lansing residents gathered at the Scott Sunken Garden on Sunday to speak out against a city proposal that would turn the park into a substation for the Lansing Board of Water & Light.

The group included members from the Garden Club of Lansing, Preservation Lansing, and the Cherry Hill Neighborhood Association. 

One opponent of the proposal said if the project goes forward it could set a dangerous precedent. 

If the project goes forward, the 98-year-old Scott House will be moved to a vacant lot on the corner of MLK and Hillsdale Streets. The Sunken Garden would be moved a short distance from where it sits now. 

BWL says the project has widespread community support.
