State Representatives from the Grand Rapids area will be hosting a transportation town hall next Monday, June 10th, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Grand Rapids. The location will be at Grand Valley State University’s Pew Downtown Campus, in room 215A of the Eberhard Center. The address is 301 Fulton Street West, Grand Rapids MI, 48504. Parking is available in the Eberhard Lot, which is off Front Avenue.
The event is being hosted by the following State Representatives:
- State Rep. Tom Hooker, R-Byron Center
- State Rep. Lisa Posthumus Lyons, R-Alto
- State Rep. Peter MacGregor, R-Canon Township
- State Rep. Rob VerHeulen, R- Walker
- State Rep Ken Yonker, R-Caledonia
The Director of the Michigan Department of Transportation, Kirk Steudle, will also attend and be available for a question and answer session.
We encourage you to consider attending this town hall. Please help express the importance of local communities in the overall transportation system and how this system needs to be inclusive of all modes of transportation. This issue is more than about just building roads and the view from curb to curb. It is about building great places that contribute to the economic growth and success of Michigan.
