The City of Grand Rapids will hold a series of accountability sessions beginning this Monday. Organized in response to community feedback gleaned from multiple forums and listening sessions, these five update and community response sessions will:
- Provide greater transparency to questions posed by residents -- especially related to community and police relations
- Provide updates on actions taken, current work, and future plans
- Engage residents in responding to the update provided to determine if the city is moving in the right direction and what may still be missing from existing and pending plans.
“We hope residents take the time to visit one of our sessions and share their thoughts and recommendations. We hope to hear themes emerge from the community meetings that will provide the agenda for future discussions on specific topics. Information gained from these meetings will provide the discussion topics for the community to find solutions and tangible outcomes to address racial equity.” City Manager Greg Sundstrom said.
