Public hearing planned over proposed GR hotel

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Residents in the city of Grand Rapids are invited to weigh-in on a developer's plans to build a 13-story hotel downtown Grand Rapids.

The Grand Rapids city commission will host a meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, over whether or not to allow a $36 million hotel project at 10 Ionia Avenue NW in downtown Grand Rapids.

The meeting will consider an application for a reimbursement worth more than $2 million, since the project is going up on an old commercial site.

The project would include retail space, and more than 140 hotel rooms and  it would also create as many as 70 jobs.

    The City Commission is actually going to invite public opinion on a project before it starts? Kind of a novel idea for Grand Rapids. Asking for input from the people that might be directly or indirectly impacted before deciding to proceed with the project regardless.

    Is your film crew and news department so lazy that they can’t find any better B-roll, besides a project that is happening two miles away from the actual building site? A few google earth images would have made more sense than this.
