Grand Rapids "Gets" Housing

The 2024-04-11 meeting of the City Planning Commission was an update of the current Master Plan process, this being a recap of phase#3. There is one more phase (phase#4) to go.

A key result so far from the process is that the citizens of Grand Rapids understand the need for housing, and are ready for it. In many ways the citizens of this city are out ahead of their leadership, by a considerable distance.

These three slides from the presentation illustrate the support for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), duplexes, and quad and triplexes

Accessory Dwelling Units


Triplexes and Quadplexes

In summary: the majority of citizens of Grand Rapids believe infill housing development of various types should be allowed everywhere in every neighborhood.
