Organizers seek community input to transform Grand River Avenue corridor

May 1, 2013

The stretch of Grand River Avenue and Michigan Avenue from the Capitol building all the way east to Webberville is this region’s busiest corridor. A new plan, led by the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, is in the works to transform this corridor with more attractive design, improved rapid transit, and sustainable business and infrastructure improvements.  

This is still in the early stages of the design phase and they’re calling for the public’s help.  Starting today and through May 7, there will be a design charrette open to residents of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties, where feedback and suggestions from the community are not only welcome, but essential to the design process.

Sue Pigg, the executive director of the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission and Victor Dover, principle of a Florida-based planning and design firm, discuss plans for the Grand River Avenue corridor.

The Charrette Studio is located at 333 E. Grand River Avenue, and will be open Thursday May 2 through Monday May 6.
