Share your vision for the Eastern Ave neighborhood!

Posted: 10-29-2012

We have an exciting opportunity for you to become involved in the design and future development of the Eastern Ave neighborhood.

With funding from Dyer-Ives, LINC is leading a community-driven area planning and opportunity mapping project for the neighborhoods surrounding Eastern/Franklin and Eastern/Wealthy. During the open house sessions listed below you will have a chance to join a walking tour, speak with architects from Isaac V. Norris & Associates, and share your vision for this area.

This project is going above and beyond the traditional area specific plan to identify gaps in the social fabric of the neighborhood and design opportunities to more fully meet the needs of the families that live here.

We want everyone to have a chance to lift their voice and share their ideas. There are eight opportunities for you to speak up:

  • Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at the Grand Rapids Urban League (745 Eastern Ave SE) from 12pm-2pm and 6pm-8pm.
  • Thursday, November 8, 2012 at Reagan Marketing (912 Wealthy Street SE) from 12pm-2pm and 6pm-8pm.

The neighborhood is changing, so help guide the development of your community!
