Topics of discussion will include cooperative efforts among local, state, and federal agencies; local communities; and citizens as they all strive to achieve a vision of West Michigan's transportation needs through 2035.

Resident knowledge of their area and input in the planning process is crucial to developing the best overall plan, according to the Grand Valley Metropolitan Council, which will oversee the forums.

Here is an article from the "Rapids Growth" publication

The article talks about the growth of ridership on the Rapid and mentions that Grand Rapids Metro is moving forward with plans for larger mass transit system.

Thanks for the heads up francishsu. I'm surprised the Press didn't have anything listed on these meetings.

Hey Western Michigan Urban Planners :shades:

If any of you have time this morning (Friday) between 10am and 11:30 at The Rapid Central Station (300 Ellsworth St. SW in Grand Rapids) there will be a Mass Transit public hearing put on by the GVMC. This will be a great way to voice our concerns and suggestions to the Planning Board. It would be great to show them public interest in these types of projects. I hope some of you will be able to attend :thumbsup:

This is a repeat of what I posted on the main page, but it is related to this topic as well.
