  1. In the past I’d heard DeVos family opposed casino gaming. That may have been just Rich DeVos…
  2. That’s a fun dream. After hearing a lot about Miami struggling with attendance at football games because they don’t have an on-campus stadium, I have to wonder if any schools have done well with stadiums that are not on their main campus…
  3. Geographic fit is my question about OVC… closest school in the league is almost 350 miles from G.R. It’s really a TN/KY league.
  4. This kind of begs the question of WSU... they've got to be making same calculations and looking at their options...
  5. Relevant article from The Lanthorn: Moving On Up? GV Athletics disputes football recruits’ claims of a move to DI – Grand Valley Lanthorn
  6. I wonder if there are other GLIAC schools making this move with GVSU. It would be challenging to have 100% of away games be so far away for fans, and disappointing for the rivalries to all disappear...
  7. why on earth would they join OVC instead of MAC? The regional alignment is awful...
  8. If I’m not mistaken, Grand Rapids does have a noise ordinance. There are (were?) scattered signs posted around town noting enforcement intentions of this ordinance. Not that is practical to actually enforce, but if we have laws on the books that are literally never enforced, then their value is nil.
  9. I live along the route, and it is definitely operating at a low volume compared to the ridership pre-covid on the line it replaced. I think it will be a long recovery curve to see ridership at the levels it would have been at otherwise...
  10. Someone suggested a Red Lion food truck in that lot, which would be a really fun idea.
  11. Almost two and a half years they've been working on this?
  12. Just playing devil's advocate here, but couldn't that be kind of confusing to all the people who have no frame of reference for that sign? That's an advertisement for a restaurant, but if you pulled over to check it out, there isn't one.
  13. I wonder if the building Khorasaurus was noting in this pic is maybe a take on the ramp/liner building that was once envisioned for that lot behind the arena.
  14. I would guess that the internal alignment of the arena with a below-grade dock would create some issues. You would conceivably off-load a show on a floor below the arena floor that way and I'd think that very problematic...
  15. From this morning's DDA meeting...
  16. When did First Companies acquire that building? or are they brokering it?
  17. The eruption on We Are Westsiders on FB would be epic...
  18. False alarm... upon further review, it's 'available' not 'for sale...'
  19. Noticed last evening that there's a for sale sign on the Westdale property at Covell/LMD
  20. I was guessing the lamprey barrier would be first thing. Without going back to look it up, seems like there was a mussel that needed to be relocated too before work in the river. Those environmental permitting processes, I would think, are the things slowing down the start of work. The public will become cynical about this if things don't start to happen though. And if it drags out for another decade of crawling process, it will REALLY lose people's interest/confidence.
  21. I also think managing drainage from that hillside is a pretty big deal for those downhill with an apartment development. I'd be very concerned if I were below that property...
  22. It feels like their desperation is creating some real bad communication, including mischaracterizing the proposed development, motivations of people in the city government (I actually saw a post where they said that too many gay people are involved in these businesses, so people want them out), etc. They're going to squander what goodwill people have for them very quickly. MANY years ago, there was a similar (same?) bunch of antique dealers (booths) in Lowell (Flat River Antique Mall), then some of them migrated to Bridge St., and moved around a bit til they wound up at Sligh. I suspect they'll unearth another suitable building, undoubtedly without the same historic character though. People love these shops and will support them as they move...
