With a significant number of houses occupied by renters, we have an obligation to work with landlords, too. In earlier decades, Grand Rapids neighborhood associations’ crime prevention work helped put in place city ordinances requiring deadbolts and window locks to prevent break ins. We also continue to remind home owners – occupants and landlords alike – to maintain their properties in accordance with city codes. Today’s hot issue is affordable housing. We invite you to join the conversation to find cross-sector solutions that will make it possible for more of our neighbors to stay right here in Belknap Lookout.

Below you’ll find a variety of resources. If you have additional content to recommend, please let us know. When you have a chance, don’t forget to join – because we can accomplish more together than any of us could do alone.
