Overlay District

The City of East Lansing's Overlay Ordinance is a tool available to residents to restrict rental licenses in a particular neighborhood. The ordinance calls for 2/3 signatures of the neighborhood in order to bring the issue of rental license restrictions before City Council.

The Red Cedar / Ivanhoe Neighborhood has a RO3 Rental Restriction Overlay, which prohibits any new rental licenses that are not owner-occupied. View the Red Cedar / Ivanhoe Neighborhood Overlay District map.
