City Connection (November, 2023)
On November 6th the community access show "City Connection" hosted Kyle Van Strien, current chair of the Grand Rapids Planning Commission, and City Commissioner Melinda Ysasi (2nd Ward). In the show's traditional format the host interviews the Commissioner Ysasis, then Planning Commissioner Van Strien, and then the two together.
While no specific policies were discussed in any depth the conversation did include the tabling of the Corewell's proposed demolition of Monroe North, as well as the upcoming master plan.
Note: Commissioner Van Strien's term on the Grand Rapids Planning Commission ends at the end of the year (2023). A new Planning Commission chair will then be chosen.
