Lansing City Council Approves Shuffleboard and Social Club
The Lansing City Council has been very busy this week with all kinds of important meetings taking place.
According to the Lansing State Journal, Lansing Council voted to approve a $3 million redevelopment of the Lansing City Market facility during one of those meetings.
Here's what it all comes down to:
The redevelopment will turn the former City Market facility alongside the Grand River into the Lansing Shuffleboard & Social Club with food and drink vendors as well as space for community events. (LSJ)
I love this whole concept of having shuffleboard teams and a social club all at one location.
Shuffleboard is such a fun game to play and it's not that easy to play. It does require a little bit of skill.
It's a game which players use cues to push weighted discs, sending them gliding down a narrow court, with the purpose of having them come to rest within a marked scoring area.
Lansing mayor Andy Schor said the former City Market area is a riverfront space that has the opportunity to bring more vibrancy to Lansing's Stadium District, Downtown and Eastside.
The Detroit Rising Development team is working to secure final financing for the project. This will include requesting loans from the Lansing economic Development Corporation and the Lansing Brownfield Redevelopment Authority to support operations and make improvements to the City owned building.
