The Grand Valley Metro Council will award $668,000 in grant funding to six community projects.
On Tuesday, a GVMC committee narrowed down the pool from 85 projects to seven. A day later, a study group met with the committee to whittle the finalists down to six.
The grant money will be divvyed up between Cannon Township, Jamestown Township, Rockford, Wyoming, Grand Rapids and the Kent County Parks Department. All of the projects are non-motorized, meaning they will not involve road improvements or construction. GVMC plans to release further details of the projects at a later date.
