Pilot project to add paint, pop-up vending to Division Avenue – Grand Rapids, MI
The Downtown Development Authority in Grand Rapids, Michigan approved up to $50,000 in funding to roll out a “tactical build-out” on South Division Avenue near Logan Street, the area where the Inner City Christian Federation is building its Tapestry Square senior living development.
The plans call for testing whether pavement paint, pop-up vending and other “lighter, quicker, cheaper deployments” can improve safety and proper use of bus lanes, bike lanes, and crosswalks.
Team Better Block powered by WGI and Aligned Planning will partner for the pilot project, which includes planning, recruiting volunteers, building out the site and gathering data daily, including noise levels and traffic speeds. The group plans to add QR codes to the area to explain what’s happening to visitors.
