Got Questions? Hope Network to hold informational meeting this Friday
At the last White Cloud City Council meeting on Tuesday, November 12, a presentation by Hope Network on a proposed apartment project drew an avalanche of questions from the packed gallery. After close to 45 minutes the question period was ended to allow for a resumption of the meeting agenda.
As for those who attended and were not able to get their queries responded to as well as the folks who may have not been at the meeting and have questions of their own?
Well, there’s a meeting for that.
A press release by the organization sent out on Monday (November 18th) includes an invitation to:
“A Neighborhood Meeting to discuss the proposed Riverbank Place Apartments at:
Leighton Hall 601 N. Evergreen Dr. White Cloud, MI 49349 Conveniently located one mile north of the traffic light in White Cloud on M-37 Friday, November 22, 2019, 3-6 pm.”
Per the release:
This will be conducted as an informal drop-in format with three information stations. Development team representatives will be available to provide general information, answer specific questions, and keep a record of questions posed or comments offered by attendees. The three information stations are:
1. Location/Design Considerations: Information regarding why the White Cloud community has been chosen for these apartments, the scope and size of the project, what the site requirements are, and the preliminary design elements.
2. Asset/Property Management, Maintenance, and Affordable Apartments Tenant Selection: Information regarding the long-term care of the apartments, the ongoing property management and maintenance, and how tenants of the affordable/workforce apartments will be selected.
3. Transportation Services, Supportive Housing Services, and Tenant Selection: Information regarding the type and level of services provided to all tenants, including work- related transportation, and those specific to tenants of supportive housing apartments. This will also cover the supportive housing tenant identification and referral process.
Here is your opportunity to learn about the initiative as well as chime in on any thoughts you might have regarding this proposed project.
