Thursday evening July 6 from 7-9 P.M. we are calling to order the July meeting of the Friends of the Grande. This is a public meeting that is open to anyone interested in contributing to the cause of preserving and restoring the Grande Ballroom building. As of this spring, the current owners Chapel Hill Missionary Baptist Church have granted approval to pursue nomination of the building to the National Register of Historic Places and to investigate restoration/redevelopment potential.
Of particular importance for this meeting will be the latest on a structural integrity report and the national historic registry nomination. Most specifics are not published publicly and are privy only to attendees.
We will be holding this meeting in the Theater of Techshop Detroit. Techshop is a membership-based, open-access, DIY workshop and fabrication studio that welcomes people of all skill levels to come in and use industrial tools and equipment to build their own projects.
We hope to have all stakeholders present and look forward to seeing YOU there!
