Come Tell Mike Bonin You Care About Kentwood

Saturday is our Kentwood Home Guardians Annual Member Meeting and Councilman Mike Bonin is our Guest Speaker. This is your chance to meet Mike in a small group setting when he is present to talk to us specifically about our local quality of life in Kentwood.

Mike has been asked to specifically address Kentwood crime, multi-family development density (esp. the Grinder project), ADUs, the old Westchester fire station and our upcoming Community Plan update.

This is your chance to meet Mike and share your concerns! Feel shy? Just showing up lets him know that we are an engaged community.

The meeting starts at 1 pm at the Westchester Firestation in the Community Room. You can find the agenda at here. Come at 12:30 if you’d like to join us for a light lunch, but please RSVP for food at https://www.facebook.com/events/1805751176135409/ (click “going”) or by emailing the KHG office at info@kentwoodhomeguardians.com.

Please Note: Parking at the fire station is restricted to the street in front of the station and the dirt lot just south of the station. Please do not park in the fire station parking lot, including the spots near the community room. That area is reserved for firefighters on duty. You can access the dirt lot and street parking from Westchester Parkway. You can also park on the streets outside the grounds and walk in from the north side.
