Wyoming City Manager's Blog - What's new

From: http://wyomingmi.gov

As I go through my daily routine – shopping at the grocery store, walking in the neighborhood, golfing or watching some sporting event at a school or in the park -- people will often ask me what’s new in the City of Wyoming.  Many times I say same old stuff, and then it occurred to me that for most people my “same old stuff” is probably pretty “new.”  So I thought I would take a little space today and talk about some of the “same old stuff” that residents may not actually have heard of yet.

Wyoming eyes Crescent St. project to revatilize city

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - The City of Wyoming is looking into building a downtown area from scratch. The project is called 28 West.

The city would create Crescent Street between Clyde Park Ave. and Burlingame Ave. SW, along the 28th Street corridor. Rezoning could happen as soon as this fall. It would involved a mixed-use town center area with a new Main Street.

In total, 28 West would allow for 660,000 square feet of business space and about 600 new apartments.

The project evolved from the former Turn on 28th Street' initiative. Some existing businesses would have to be moved and the project itself would take about 15 years to complete.

Local residents killed in Livingston County crash

HOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (Lansing State Journal) - A third victim in a Sunday fatal crash in Howell Township has died from her injuries.
Sheriff Bob Bezotte said 49-year-old Susan Bloomstine, of Wyoming, Mich., died from her injuries during the night at the University of Michigan Medical Center.

Also killed in the 5:21 p.m. crash were 80-year-old Charles Wright, of Wyoming, and George Tissen, 54, of Fowlerville.
Bezotte said witnesses indicated that Tissen, who was driving a 2002 Ford Ranger eastbound on Interstate 96, went into the median, traveled about 300 yards in the opposite direction and crossed to the westbound lanes where his vehicle collided with a 2007 Ford Taurus in the center lane, just west of M-59.
Police speculate Tissen experienced a medical event. "Witnesses said they couldn't see him driving," Bezotte said. "It was like he was lying down in the seat."

Silver Line add-on, just one perk of 2011 millage

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- A new bus line for Grand Rapids transportation is set to open up thanks to the millage that passed in 2011.

The tax is generating $15 million each year, and will do so for the next five years. The tax plan will provide more funding for the Rapid Transit System services.

The new Silver Line would run down Division Street from the Grand Rapids Central Business District to 60th Street.

Monday night, the City of Wyoming is holding a "Walkability Meeting" for the public. It will start at 5:30 p.m. in the Godwin Heights High School auditorium. Organizers will be on hand to explain the plan and answer any questions the public might have.

If all goes according to plan, the high-speed Silver Line bus service will open in two years.
