Byron and Gaines townships are targeting improvements along Division Avenue, between 60th and 84th streets.
Over the next 20 years, more than $2.4 million in improvements in the corridor are projected. Each township has established a Corridor Improvement Authority for the locale. A 60-day waiting period is in place, during which time governmental units collecting taxes from the townships - Kent County, Kent District Library and Grand Rapids Community College - can opt out.
The improvement plan could be approved this spring. Improvements are planned for the streetscape, sidewalks, non-motorized trails, parking, public transportation, storefronts, signage and parks.
