Lansing’s City Council voted unanimously Monday night to approve a purchase and development agreement of a new mixed-use development project on land along the Red Cedar River. Construction could start as early as spring of 2019.

The land is the site of the former Red Cedar Golf Course, but the city has been talking about building something new on it since at least 2011.
