** East Lansing Family Aquatic Center Opens for 2022 Summer Season
------------------------------------------------------------

The City of East Lansing is pleased to announce that the East Lansing Family Aquatic Center (ELFAC), 6400 Abbot Road, opened for its 2022 summer season today, July 15.

The ELFAC is an interactive outdoor water facility that provides a safe, family-oriented aquatic experience for patrons. Features at the site include tube and body water slides, a diving board, a drop slide, a large sunbathing deck, a splash park, a youth slide, water-play structures, a concession area, zero-depth pool entry and more! Weather permitting, the ELFAC will be open seven days a week this summer from 11 a.m.-7 p.m.* from July 15-Sept. 5 (Labor Day).

Due to the shorter season, season passes will not be sold this year and 10-visit passes can be used during both the 2022 and 2023 summer seasons. Community members can learn more about ELFAC’s rates and passes here: https://www.cityofeastlansing.com/855/Rates-Passes.

The ELFAC underwent several renovations and upgrades over the past year, including conversion of the sand play area to a grass play area, refurbishment (repair and repainting) of the water slides, painting of the locker rooms, the addition of a second all gender restroom/family changing room, repair of the concrete around the pool deck and installation of a new pool liner.

“We are excited to finally be able to open and show off the updated Aquatic Center, and we want to thank our community members for their patience as final construction was completed out at the facility,” said East Lansing Parks, Recreation and Arts Director Cathy DeShambo. “The improvements that have been made at the facility will ensure many more years of recreational, water play fun for community members.”

Community members can learn more about the ELFAC and find directions to the facility at www.cityofeastlansing.com/aquaticcenter.

*Please note that hours of operation may be modified slightly later in the season when school starts due to staffing limitations. Updates will be provided on the Aquatic Center webpage, www.cityofeastlansing.com/aquaticcenter.

** Election Inspectors Play Key Role in East Lansing Elections
------------------------------------------------------------

Did you know that it takes at least 200 people serving as election inspectors to conduct an election just in East Lansing? These civically-engaged individuals help run the 17 different precincts in East Lansing, operate the Absentee Voter Counting Board and serve on the Receiving Board to ensure that all eligible voters in the City of East Lansing are fully able to exercise their right to vote for each election.

This week, East Lansing City Clerk Jennifer Shuster started conducting in-depth training sessions for the election inspectors, which are specific to the upcoming State Primary Election being held on August 2, 2022. These required and paid training sessions also certify these individuals to work elections for the next two years.

“We have an amazing team of election inspectors that include both experienced and new workers. We are very fortunate to have such dedicated people who are committed to the citizens of East Lansing by making sure they have the best experience in exercising their right to vote,” said Clerk Shuster.

Community members interested in learning more about serving as a paid election inspector for the State General Election on November 8, 2022 are encouraged to click here (https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cityofeastlansing.com%2F1902%2FElection-Inspectors&data=05%7C01%7Cmfrey%40cityofeastlansing.com%7Cdd6a8692943e4376abaf08da6665ec9a%7C42c2237340d243c6b22f2c6f445fa115%7C0%7C0%7C637934885220032970%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=F8qd3crvUs3wIaJXVR8K7Sc3nDYLh6ZAtoEEDMln8qY%3D&reserved=0) for more information. Election inspectors must be registered to vote in the state of Michigan or a student (ages 16-17). East Lansing election inspectors do not need to be a registered voter in East Lansing.

** City of East Lansing Seeks Proposals for Housing Project at Coleman and West Roads
------------------------------------------------------------
The City of East Lansing is seeking proposals from qualified housing developers for the development of a City-owned property located at the southwest corner of Coleman and West roads, which was recently appraised at approximately $2.8 million.

The property is approximately 26.83 acres, and it has been approved by East Lansing voters to be sold. The City is seeking a development partner who can develop an economically viable project on the property, while also creating significant housing opportunities at price points suitable to meet demand from low- and moderate-income households currently experiencing difficulties entering the East Lansing housing market.

“Our hope is that a housing project can be developed on the property that will serve as an initial step in addressing the affordability and attainability gaps in East Lansing’s market,” said East Lansing City Manager George Lahanas. “We envision that this type of development would serve as an example project that will inform updates to the City’s Master Plan, specifically as it relates to future housing objectives in our Northern Tier.”

Prospective, qualified housing developers can learn more by viewing the Request for Qualifications/Proposals issued today: www.cityofeastlansing.com/colemanwest. Statements of qualifications and proposals will be accepted electronically on or before 10 a.m. EST on Friday, September 30, 2022.

** Northern Tier Trail Improvement Project to Begin this Month
------------------------------------------------------------
Community members are advised that an improvement project is scheduled to begin at the end of July to relocate a portion of the Northern Tier Trail away from the Sanderson Drain and reconstruct a portion of the trail.

During this work, sections of the trail between the East Lansing Soccer Complex and Abbey Road (view site plan (https://www.cityofeastlansing.com/DocumentCenter/View/12517/Site-Plan_7-8-2022-PDF) ) will be closed and trail users will be detoured around the construction area. Barricades and signs will be in place. Once it has begun, this relocation and reconstruction project is expected to take approximately six to eight weeks to be completed.

The community’s patience is appreciated during this important work along the trail. Funding for this trail improvement project has been provided by the Ingham County Trails and Parks Millage.
