Friends of the Grand Blanc Grid support improved infrastructure for pedestrians, cyclists, people with disabilities and mass transit users on roads in Grand Blanc and throughout Genesee County.
Our vision is an equitable Genesee County road system that supports transportation choice. Equitable and accessible infrastructure improves air quality, lowers carbon emissions, improves public health, and supports community engagement and economic development.
Have you said "I wish there was a path here". There can be. We have the room, construction is being done. Paths should be included. Join us - attend our meetings, donate, spread the word. This can be done but we need YOU. We cannot do this without YOU.
