Jonathan Oosting The Detroit News Published 2:30 PM EDT Mar 28, 2019 Grand Rapids — Thousands of supporters clad in stars, stripes and Make American Great Again hats wrapped around the Van Andel Arena and lined side streets Thursday afternoon ahead of President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign rally. The first-term New York Republican is set to speak at 7 p.m., but die-hard fans Ron Smith and Todd Nordberg lined up outside the arena at 3:30 a.m. after driving to Grand Rapids from Flint in the middle of the night. “He gets us,” Nordberg, 54, said of Trump as he stood outside the arena, where he and his friend were among the first 100 or so supporters awaiting entrance. Smith agreed. The retired cabinet maker, 51, who claimed his work dried up because of an influx of “illegal immigrants" would do his job for half the pay, said the president is “doing his best to keep his promises” and put the American people first. … [Read more...] about Trump faithful line streets of Grand Rapids for rally
The Colorado Springs City Council soon will be asked to declare 40 acres of untouched foothills on the Air Force Academy as an urban renewal area.That designation, typically for blighted areas, would earmark millions of dollars in tax revenue for a new visitors center at the academy.Supporters say state law allows vacant land to be declared blighted, qualifying it for urban renewal status.

Mike Martindale The Detroit News Published 11:30 PM EST Feb 11, 2019 Royal Oak — Controversial developments appear to be surfacing in Royal Oak as quickly as city-owned parking spaces disappear. Developer Anthony Yezbick, a Royal Oak attorney, will go before the Royal Oak Planning Commission on Tuesday seeking major variances on a former gas station site for a five-story, 60-unit apartment building. His request comes on the heels of vocal opposition to a $67 million downtown development project and its elimination of 225 surface parking spaces on Williams Street near City Hall. Yezbick wants the site, now zoned business residential, changed to planned unit development to allow construction several stories higher than nearby buildings and for the city to waive a requirement to provide two parking spaces per living unit. Yezbick covets a 110-space Center Street city lot across an alley just west of the shuttered gas station. Nearly … [Read more...] about Royal Oak faces fresh development controversy
