From: http://wyomingmi.gov

This week our planning commission had the opportunity to review and ultimately approve the “Turn on 28th Street” plan.  Although the vote was not unanimous, I believe most recognized the efforts, planning and vision associated with the project.  This process began nearly two years ago and included numerous stakeholder meetings of business owners, property owners, and residents.  There were also design charrettes, public hearings and committee meetings, giving everyone in the community the opportunity to be involved.  Overall, the process was recognized as complete, inclusive and well thought out.  In addition, the Michigan Planning Association recognized the City of Wyoming with an award for its public engagement efforts in formulating this plan.
