Have a Walk or Run

Preset Route

The City of Lansing has developed a route at a reduced cost to the applicant. The walk or 5K run route is offered at a fee of $1,500. This fee includes the fee for barricading, traffic control plan, and ROW permits. This fee does not include parking meter capping. The approved Rivertrail route is offered at a price of $100 per day and guarantees that no other event will be held adjacent to the applicants event. Any additional services provided may result in additional charges. This standard street route is subject to change and can result in an alternate route per Public Service Department.

If you would like to prohibit vehicle parking on your route, you will want the parking meters capped. Review the Parking Meter Maps (PDF) to determine what meters you need capped and indicate this on page 2 of the SEPA form (PDF).

Please Note: the Traffic Division of Public Service may require meter capping or additional meter capping at their discretion. The City reserves the right to review your event plans for vehicle/pedestrian conflicts and require meter caps where concerns are identified.
