From the Desk of Mayor Kepley

Greetings, my name is Stephen Kepley and I am the Mayor of The City of Kentwood.  I am proud to say that Kentwood is a dynamic community of 49,184 unique individuals who are well educated and equipped for today’s and tomorrow’s jobs. We are poised to assist and work with any enterprise that wishes to begin and grow the American Dream.   


Ed Swanson's Passing | 7/17/2015
Ed served our Planning Commission from 2002- 2014. He also served on the zoning board from 2005-2009. He assisted the Engineering Department many times on traffic issues. Ed was able to educate City Officials and Leaders bringing changes to the City’s traffic system including the Breton/Walma round-a-bout.

Ed will be greatly missed.

Division Avenue Construction Update of 7-15-15 | 7/15/2015
Curb work will begin on the east side today or tomorrow. Commercial properties will have continued access via part-width construction or alternate access routes, although that access may not always be convenient. Single family homes may be without access for a period of 3 to 5 days; the contractor will give at least three days of notice before closing a driveway. Contact Dan Vanderheide at 616.554.0740 for more info if needed.
