Request for Proposals

Caledonia Township

Sub Area Plan and Development Strategy: Caledonia Township is a rapidly growing suburb of Grand Rapids, seeing positive growth trends in all segments of development. Once a predominantly rural area, the M37 corridor is transitioning from small-scale retail to large format nationally-recognized businesses. From the Township’s northern boundary near M-6, to its southern boundary at 108th Street, the M37 corridor shifts from auto-oriented strip commercial to agricultural. Two of the largest remaining farms on the corridor, located on the east side of Cherry Valley Avenue from the 8800 block to the 9400 block are the Ward and Rodger’s farms. As growth continues to evolve, the fate of these farms is uncertain as well as for immediately adjacent development. Well-reasoned and visionary land planning and development strategy is necessary to ensure these lands transition in a manner that respects the unique qualities of the Township and our community’s desires.

Please email your qualifications package by 10am on Monday, October 11 by 10am. You will be notified if selected for an interview; however, we may choose to enter into negotiations without interviewing. If you have any questions, please contact Township Planner, Lynée Wells, AICP via email at [email protected].
