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.

Congratulations to Brookfield resident Jim Cunningham for receiving a 2013 East Lansing Crystal Award. This annual award is given to "honor individuals, businesses and community groups that have made an outstanding contribution to community life in East Lansing." This year marks the 26th time that the city has given the award.
Mr. Cunningham was honored for the many ways he has contributed to the community, including a sculpture entitled “Recycling for a Sustainable World” (located on the east plaza of the East Lansing Marriott) and Little Free Libraries for Red Cedar Elementary and Trowbridge Plaza.
As you may know, a new movie theater has opened at Meridian Mall. The East Lansing Film Society is sponsoring a series of international and "art house" films there. The new theater is called Studio C. For details on the East Lansing Film Society's offerings, go to https://celebrationcinema.com/elfs.
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. For this reason, it is vital that we take care of all our trees and especially the newly planted trees until they are well established. The following guidelines for homeowners will assist in this.
