About Us

The Brookfield Heritage Neighborhood in East Lansing, Michigan is a beautiful place to live. With approximately 100 homes, our streets are lined with elegant trees that provide a comforting shade to the neighborhood. The homes, built between 1920 and 1950, are largely owner-occupied in this friendly, safe neighborhood. The mature trees on our streets provide the perfect ambiance for our annual neighborhood picnic in September.

Is CATA-BRT coming to Grand River?

By BHNA board members

Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) has been strongly promoting a new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) plan. CATA asserts that BRT will streamline transit, promote development, improve safety and sustainability along the Grand River/Michigan Ave corridor between Marsh Road (Meridian Township) and the Capitol in Lansing.

Keeping Our Trees Healthy

Brookfield Heritage Neighborhood Association was formed in the 1970s to renew the Neighborhood covenants and also to protect and restore the streetscape of silver maple trees. Initially, the Association was able to obtain small grants from the City for tree replacement but when these grants ceased, the Neighborhood took over funding for tree replacement. Forty trees have been replaced and paid for by donations, fund-raising activities, and dues. At present, each tree costs approximately $350 plus planting and therefore represents a considerable investment by the Neighborhood.
