This live episode of Catalyst Radio brings to the WYCE studio Nicole Weichelt with Grand Rapids’ Downtown Alliance.

The Downtown Alliance is responsible for maintenance and beautification efforts downtown, as well as marketing, events and business advocacy.

We talk about new business and development activity in downtown Grand Rapids, along with a number of upcoming events highlighting the city.



Music featured this week on Catalyst Radio is samplings from the new disc from local band Tokyo Morose, called Sequence of Steps.
