The City of Grand Rapids is updating the Grand Rapids Downtown Plan. The study will focus on the core area of downtown as shown in the figure below.
The current Downtown Redevelopment Master Plan was adopted in 2006 and has served the community well since adoption. In combination with the 2040 Comprehensive Plan, this document is utilized by the community to inform investment and policy decisions that support the vitality of Downtown Grand Rapids.

The Grand Rapids Downtown Plan Update will use public input, existing conditions, and changing trends to explore redevelopment opportunities, improvements to the public realm (e.g., streetscape, open spaces), changes to parking opportunities, and transportation safety considerations. As a result, the plan will solidify goals for Downtown Grand Rapids and a plan for implementation.
