Look What’s Happening in Georgetown Township (Jenison, MI)!

It’s finally happening!  After experiencing years of businesses, restaurants and store fronts leaving our area primarily to relocate closer to Rivertown Mall we are now beginning to see a new resurgence in business coming back into our community.

After a recent, strong public opposition that caused a new, planned Georgetown Township complex to be cancelled  8.1 Million Georgetown Township Complex Scrapped  the Georgetown Township Board is moving forward and now requesting from its community both their ideas and input in the development of 200 Baldwin St.. They would also like to hear the people’s opinion on more long term plans currently being directed towards the senior center and library.  Baldwin St. Development Ideas Sought

The first bit of good news came for me when I heard the empty Target Building would be the new location of an at home store.  New At Home Store in Jenison  This is the first of it’s kind in our area, carrying a great assortment of merchandise from home interior and outdoor items, garden and patio elements along with houseware items and much, much more.  If you haven’t already shopped there it should be a must on your Spring “To Do” list!

Another great piece of information came when I learned from the Georgetown Township facebook page that the long empty Perkins Restaurant has been sold and will be the new location for a Sophia’s House of Pancakes …there is no opening date as of yet but I’m sure our residents will be ready for a new place to relax and enjoy pancakes, waffles and a hot cup of coffee or two!

We are also lucky to have the addition of a new fitness studio called Get Empowered Fitness located at 666 Baldwin St. Jenision.  Please check out what they have to offer you here at Get Empowered Fitness Studio.  Another welcome addition to our community!

And finally, again from the townships facebook page….”Georgetown Charter Township has recently reached an agreement to purchase a home located at 111 Baldwin St. This property is to be part of the townships plan to create access for our residents to the Grand River for kayaking, boating and also a bicycle trail. I am incredibly happy to hear of this as I love the idea of our community finally getting an area of access to the Grand River and be able to enjoy a variety of water activities and a bicycle trail too!

I think it’s great that the township is now striving to keep this community informed and up to date on it’s current events, general information and topics of interest by way of facebook.  If you would like to keep “in the loop” too, please take a moment to check out and “Like” their page here… Georgetown facebook Page
