COMMUNITY PARTY PLATFORM
Village of Lansing
The Community Party is dedicated to bringing together residents of the Village of Lansing, irrespective of national political affiliation, to maintain a livable place in which to reside and work, to preserve important open spaces, and to provide for orderly, controlled development. Open communication and a thrifty budget are top priorities.
We have the following broad objectives:
1. Planned Development
Manage orderly growth and protect the environment consistent with the Village’s Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Law. Protection of the environment includes finding ways to solve the deer population problems and strengthening the conservation of green spaces/viewsheds, buffer zones and dark sky.
2. Roads and Traffic
Mitigate the impact of traffic by controlling vehicular flow and reducing vehicle-related pollution. Continue to improve pedestrian and bicycle convenience and safety. Promote expansion of public transportation options.
3. Business Climate
Support and enhance the economic viability of business in the Village through well designed roads, consistent signage and appropriate lighting. Encourage improved appearance of our commercial areas.
4. Taxes and Revenue
Keep taxes at the lowest possible level consistent with the interests of the Village. Cooperate with neighboring municipalities to maintain Village infrastructure and services.
Provide appropriate stewardship of Village infrastructure.
6. Recreation and Open Space
Increase recreational opportunities for Village residents of all ages through the Recreation Partnership and strengthen implementation of the Greenway Plan, bikeways and parks. Be proactive in preserving open space.
Encourage participation in Village affairs by frequently providing information through newsletters, supplemented by the Web, e-mail and posted notices of public meetings.
