Community Conversations: Tim Kelly, GR Forward – Part II

As a part of our Community Conversations series, our Director of Development, Monica Stiemle, sat down with Tim Kelly, Planning Manager for Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. and organizer of the GR Forward Downtown and River Action Plan.

For Part II of their conversation, Monica and Tim touched upon the following points that focus on the process to date of the GR Forward plan:

  • The GR Forward Plan will amend the city’s master plan and become public policy.
  • It will be presented at a public hearing before going to city commission for approval.
  • People are encouraged to find an area of the plan that catches their interest/expertise and get involved.
  • The plan is split into short, medium and long term goals.
