GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Grand Rapids City Commission Tuesday unanimously approved the ‘GR Forward’ plan.

The Downtown Development Authority and North Monroe TIFA previously voted to approve the plan at the Downtown Grand Rapids inc. office last Wednesday morning.

The plan focuses on restoring a five mile stretch of the Grand River corridor through downtown Grand Rapids.

Some of the proposals include creating an urban park with a trail system, designing public spaces to accommodate the winter weather and upgrading major streets like Fulton and Ionia Avenue.
