     ​EVENTS
    The City of Grand Rapids Planning Department is hosting community meetings to seek input on how best to support older adults to live active and healthy lives as they continue living in their homes and neighborhoods. Small table discussions facilitated by city staff will allow for older adults to have their voices be heard. These community conversations will focus on housing, transportation, outdoor spaces and buildings, employment, volunteerism, social events, communication, respect and intergenerational inclusion, and healthy and community services.
