This morning, Alpine Township hosted the second annual Leadership Breakfast. Representatives from schools, churches, service organizations, the agricultural, business and residential communities met with Township Officials and enjoyed a special program presented by Greg Northrup, President of the West Michigan Regional Alliance, an organization whose mission is to serve as a catalyst for regional collaboration. In addition to local representation, the event was attended by County Commissioner Tom Antor, Under-sheriff Jon Hess and State Senator Mark Jansen.

Attendees at each table had the opportunity to discuss strengths and weaknesses of their local community
After some discussion, it was the general consensus that the strength of Alpine Township is its diversity and its people. Issues attendees like to see addressed are the traffic on Alpine Ave. and more sidewalks. Attendees also indicated they would like to meet more frequently than once a year to colaborate on these and other community issues.
