Kalamazoo’s Foundation for Excellence is actively planning for the future of Kalamazoo. Connect had a chance to talk with City Manager Jim Ritsema, as well as sit in on a special work session regarding the memorandum of understanding. Community members and city commissioners alike were able to speak their minds on the foundation, future plans, like Imagine Kalamazoo 2025, and the memorandum itself.
The memorandum passed, voting was 6 to 1 in favor. You can view the meeting in its entirety here.

This is just the beginning, open communication and involvement from community members is welcomed and encouraged throughout the entire process!
