While some residents are excited for The Common Ground Music Festival taking place this week in downtown Lansing, others are concerned by the traffic, noise and crowds it will generate.
“I plan on going to the Common Ground concert and having a great time. The only downfall about this event is that it can become very crowded,” local resident Robert Ray said.
Common Ground does affect Lansing because there will be streets blocked off, and people who don’t even want to go to the event will have to experience traffic.
“I live in downtown Lansing close to where they host the Common Ground concert. I love the fact that artist are coming to our town to have performances but the one thing that bothered me is the fact that I was so loud and lasted for a long time” local resident Mario Harlon said.
There will be law enforcement provided at this event to minimize any issues that could possibly occur.
“I am excited for the Common Ground concert. This is my favorite time of the year, when summer concerts occur,” local resident Terry Morris said.
