This post deals the what occurred at a neighborhood summit in Santa Rosa. The same Jim Diers who spoke in Santa Rosa will speak at the upcoming (Friday, March 13th, 2015) Strong Neighborhoods, Strong City: Grand Rapids Neighborhood Summit 2015 (http://grcity.us/city-manager/Pages/Neighborhoods0119-9843.aspx). If strong neighborhoods is a vital issue to you, I urge you to attend this event and observe first hand what transpires. I’ve read articles written by people who attended similar events. I’m curious as to what the objectives and outcome of the March 13th meeting will be.
The link below deciphers the Santa Rosa meeting’s intent. The update in red at the end of the post explains what actually happened.
