GOVERNOR GRANHOLM'S COOL CITIES INTIATIVE MAKES LIFE BETTER FOR EVERYONE!
Kalamazoo County is already benefiting from Michigan’s Cool Cities Initiative grants program for economic development and more jobs, which was introduced in 2003. Cool Cities are places where talented and imaginative individuals find places to work and to enjoy the benefits of rich cultural, social and recreational opportunities. Kalamazoo has an abundance of these ingredients that are already combining for an outstanding lifestyle. Community leaders and business owners agree on the importance of attracting and encouraging young adults to reside, work, shop and help create the Cool City in which they live.
