The Bailey Annual Meeting is this Thursday evening, May 2nd,
from 7:00 - 9:00 pm in the Orchard Street Pump House


The Bailey Annual Meeting is an opportunity for all Bailey residents to hear about the Bailey Community Association's work over the past year, to elect new officers and members to the board, and the topic of the evening is discussion of the City of East Lansing's plan to revise the Comprehensive Plan in later 2013.

The City's Director of Planning and Development, Tim Dempsey, will discuss the Comprehensive Plan -- this issue affects all Bailey residents:

Residential areas, rental units, green space, downtown -- what is the big picture for East Lansing and where does the Bailey Neighborhood fit in?  The Comprehensive Plan is the city's guidebook for land use and development.


We encourage you to attend the Annual Meeting and we look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening!
