We are committed to interacting with developers as they prepare for commission hearings such as Special Land Use. Our Development Committee now has regularly scheduled meetings to begin vetting projects on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm at our office at 700 Clancy for your convenience.  You will need to alert our staff member, Elianna Bootzin (see footer for contact info), or committee chair, Loren Sturrus ( or 616-481-1655), by noon on the Friday before the scheduled meeting that you have a project to present (including the address and type of development). Without a scheduled agenda item, we will cancel any given monthly meeting. Please refer to the outline prepared by our Development Committee for additional information on what to expect during this process.

Below you’ll find a variety of resources. If you have additional content to recommend, please let us know.
