Join the OTCA in celebrating over 25 years as an organization dedicated to the development and promotion of Old Town Lansing.
Many years ago, a group of very dedicated people, including the late Robert Busby, decided they’d had enough of the decay of Old Town. For the last 30+ years, these urban pioneers have worked hard to revitalize Old Town into a place where you want to live, work, dine, shop and play. In 1996 the Old Town Commercial Association (OTCA) was created and the Main Street program was established. Since then we’ve seen building vacancy rates drop from 90% to less than 3%. Old Town is now the home of 95 businesses, 51 service businesses, 36 boutique retailers, 14 restaurants and bars, five art galleries, nine non-profits and curated outdoor spaces filled with murals and outdoor art. With a lot of hard work and dedication, Old Town has become the premier Arts and Culture District of the Lansing region and the Midwest.
