GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A redevelopment effort centered around the Grand River in Grand Rapids has gotten the green light from two important boards, but it’s not entirely in the clear yet.
The initiative is a series of improvements and policies to guide the future of downtown Grand Rapids.
After nearly three months of public input on the plan, various boards and other groups that are crucial to GR Forward are voting on it.
“I’m really hopeful that we’re going to get this plan done in the next 30 days or so. Then we’re going to get in the business of helping to build all of these great ideas and dreams that are included in it,” said Kris Larson, director with Downtown Grand Rapids Inc.
The plan next goes before the city commission on Dec. 15.
