In late 2014, a new grassroots organization formed to try to improve the quality of life in south Lansing. ‘Rejuvenating South Lansing’ was founded by Elaine Womboldt, who’s lived in that part of the city since 1971.  

Womboldt says the group’s aim is to create positive changes in the quality of life for residents and businesses, and to create a safe environment. One focus has been eliminating blight and attracting more quality businesses to the area.

Current State speaks with Elaine Womboldt and group member Melissa Quon Huber, who also serves as president of the Averill Woods Neighborhood Association in Lansing.
