Welcome to the GRAM GoSite Concept Survey #1

Let’s Create a 21st Century Information and Interactive Space in the Heart of Downtown Grand Rapids!

The GoSite is a true collaboration with the many organizations, neighborhoods, businesses, activities, and individuals providing input and sharing content about all the great things in Grand Rapids and West Michigan.

An initial GoSite Coalition has been formed with members from the Cultural Marketing Group (representing over 20 arts & cultural organizations), the Arena District (providing a representative for restaurants and nightlife), Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc. (Downtown Development Authority and Downtown Alliance), Experience Grand Rapids (Convention and Visitors Bureau) and GRAM (providing a representative of intended space utilized on Rosa Parks Circle/Monroe Center). An Inclusion Committee is also forming that will include 20-30 members representing diverse backgrounds, neighborhoods, perspectives, etc.

The goal is to utilize engaging technology and comprehensive information sharing, inviting all to participate in a centralized platform that shines a light on our metro region. It will take many voices to fully represent all the wonderful things to share!

We need your help in this very early formative stage!

This survey has 10 questions and should only take a couple of minutes to complete. You may choose to remain anonymous, or you may choose to enter your contact information for a chance to win a GRAM Membership.

Thank you for taking the time to offer insight and feedback. Community input is vital to creating an innovative and useful space for information sharing in downtown Grand Rapids. The proposed space, located in the glass enclosed area on the northwest corner of the Grand Rapids Art Museum and facing Rosa Parks Circle and Monroe Center, is a place for tourists and locals alike to become more engaged with the many things to see and do in the area.

You may follow along with the planning progress on the GRAM GoSite page at artmuseumgr.org, where results of this survey along with future opportunities for involvement will be posted.
