Event Details

Imagine if Greater Lansing just became Lansing - one consolidated city, the way New York City is just New York City. What could that mean for our region, to adopt regionalism? 

According to the Lansing Regional Chamber, "The tri-county region (Ingham, Eaton and Clinton) consists of 77 general purpose local governments including 12 cities, 14 villages and 48 townships. Collectively, the government functions delivered by those governments represent a $500 million enterprise." 

Could the governmental unification of our region bring about significant economic growth and change, and what would our "city" then look like? Could we adopt boroughs, like NYC, or suburbs like other places in the world? How would it work?

Then, on the flipside, could it be detrimental?

Come share your opinions with us on Feb. 27, at The Avenue Cafe on 2021 E. Michigan Ave. in Lansing, as we dissect this issue and talk to some folks who can share a thing or two about this topic!

Event registration begins at 6 p.m. and the conversation will occur from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with networking to follow.

Please be sure to register so we know to expect you for refreshments! 

Capital Gains’ Speaker Series is sponsored by the Michigan Housing Development Authority (MSHDA).
