City planners reject CUs proposed branch
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (11/17/08)--A proposal to build a new branch of Consumers CU in Grand Rapids, Mich., has been rejected by city planners. More than 150 residents signed a petition opposing the plan, arguing that the drive-through branch would create noise and cause traffic congestion in a residential area (MLive.com Nov. 14). Kalamazoo-based Consumers CU will not pursue the proposal, CEO Kit Snyder told News Now. He cited economic factors in the credit union’s decision to hold off on the proposal.
