Lansing Mayor Andy Schor has decided to slow down the process of redeveloping City Hall, saying "this is a fifty year decision."
Schor explains that before moving forward, the city needs to know more about the future location of district courts and police lock-up. "This is one of the biggest long-term decisions that we can make," Schor continues, "and we need to take the appropriate time to make sure that if there are efficiencies possible, if there are options, we should be looking at those options."
Schor continues to express optimism that there will be a move, saying that developer Beitler Real Estate Services has not bowed out of plans to convert the building into a hotel. He declined to put a new timetable on the project.
