LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – The $175 million bond for a new Lansing public safety complex has passed.

The vote was 19,479 yes votes (54%) to 16,911 no votes (46%).

The bond is set up to tackle a long list of infrastructural issues and consolidate the offices of the city’s police, fire, and courts under one single roof.

“We can’t thank the residents of Lansing enough. This bond will help us to move forward and create a new facility that is very needed. Plus, it allows multiple city departments to operate in a safer and more efficient manner. It will also help aid in recruitment and retention of officers,” Chief Ellery Sosebee said.

The bond will also fund renovations to three stations, replace another, and move fire training and administration to the new building.

The new proposed complex will also house the district court and detention areas.

Lansing police offices will move from the downtown and Wise Road locations to also be included in the new complex.
