    Advocacy in Action with the West Coast Chamber
    Public Policy Committee Meeting
    The West Coast Chamber serves as the region's advocate for business at the local, state and federal levels, representing the combined strength of our diverse industry sectors. Interested in governmental and political issues? The Public Policy Committee reviews issues of local and regional concern and makes position recommendations to the Board of Directors. Join us monthly for interesting and sometimes lively discussion about the issues that affect you and your business.

    Featured Topics for June's Public Policy:

    West Michigan Express Initiative 
    Hudsonville City Manager Patrick Waterman will be presenting on the West Michigan Express (WMX) initiative - a collaborative effort to link the communities along the Chicago Drive corridor (Holland, Zeeland, Hudsonville, Grandville, and Grand Rapids) with the mobility option of commuter-based public transportation beginning with express bus service and potentially leading to commuter rail. In partnership with Housing Next and other similar agencies that have aligned goals, WMX seeks to establish Chicago Drive as a “prosperity corridor” which is nationally recognized as a desirable area in which to live, work and run a business thanks to its direct access to express public transportation, job opportunities, vibrant communities, affordable housing and skilled workforce.
