  1. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2011/08/steve_ford_talks_about_fued_at.html After reading this article today, I am wondering if maybe the Ford museum upgrade is what the guy at Rockford Construction was talking about.
  2. Not sure if this is completely relevant to the topic, but I talked with a guy this morning at Rockford Construction who said that they will have a pretty large project announced for DT GR in the next couple of months. Anyone care to elaborate on this?!
  3. Suydam- Here are some of the other parties and events (got this from the ArtPrize website; there are more listed there, too): Thursday, September 23 Westside Neighborhood Party 8 – 10:30pm Location: Corner of Seward Ave and 5th St Details: Westside residents and ArtPrize fans are invited to gather together for a night at the movies... in an untraditional way. Bring your chair and blanket and escape to mid-1950’s Manhattan for a special outdoor screening of West Side Story. The concessions are on the house! Brought to you by Celebration! Cinema. Friday, Septembe
  4. So this does not directly refer to our airport in GR, but this is something that would be great to see as the next phase: Airports pitch sites as all-purpose transport hubs http://www.usatoday.com/travel/flights/2010-07-20-airporthubs20_CV_N.htm
  5. While I appreciate your opinion, if I was told that I had to sell my property even if I did not want to, then I would consider that getting "ripped off" to put it in your terms. In this situation, Devries was willing to discuss selling the property to GVSU; it is just that GVSU did not like the terms that were presented and therefore is going to just take the land. Again, the right of a property owner is to own their land. It should not be so easy to just take it from them. Otherwise, what is the point of owning it in the first place?! I don't like it any more than anyone else that we
  6. Eminent Domain sucks. Repeal Eminent Domain laws...all of them. If you own property, you should be able to sell or not sell if you want to.
  7. So if GVSU is looking to tear down the old A & P Building and put a 100,000 sq. ft. building up, I am guessing that it will be a 3-4 Story building, correct? Just looking at that lot, it would seem that the building would be about that size.
  8. I volunteered and will be one of a few hundred "way finders" next week!
  9. Is there/does anyone have a list of the current "spinoff" events that have planned because of ArtPrize (i.e. ShirtPrize)?
  10. We are; have about a dozen friends coming in for it! A lot from New York!
  11. On the east wall of the Grand Rapids Community Foundation's new building (the Icehouse building) there is an artist who has, for the last couple of weeks, been performing prep work. I think that it is this guy: http://www.artprize.org/artist/id/3217 Being that it will be finished with ..."an exterior UV resistant varnish..." this will be a long lasting piece of the first ArtPrize. Cannot wait to see how this one turns out!
  12. This is a great big deal! How cool is it that lil ol' GR is going to host 1000 artists from around the world and have the chance to interact with many of the artists and talk about their art?!! This is turning out to be a bigger event than I would have ever imagined! Anyone volunteering? I think that I am going to sign up to help! Sounds like they are going to need every hand available. And, what a great opportunity to promote Grand Rapids and West Michigan!
  13. QUOTE (Yankee Fan @ Jul 23 2009, 10:02 AM) I don't know much about this proposal (looks like it has been in the works for a couple of years) but this is pretty cool. I know that there are some who would look at this and think that we should focus on more localized things, first. However, after reading the article, going to this company's website, and learning about what this could do, I really like this. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/ind...ail_from_g.html Why? What makes this idea silly? What is it that I am missing?
  14. You can now fly on Allegiant direct to Phoenix. http://www.mlive.com/business/west-michiga...irect_flig.html
  15. So they are going to announce new air service at the Ford; anyone want to spill the beans before woodtv? http://www.woodtv.com/dpp/news/local/grand..._for_GR_airport
