UPDATE (Thursday, Jan. 16)-- Walker Community Development Director Frank Wash says Feyen Zylstra has been given the green light to begin obtaining building permits to transform the former Fairview Elementary.
The planning commission approved the Grand Rapids' electrical contractor's final site plans Wednesday night.
Feyen Zylstra wants to transform the former Fairview Elementary into its corporate offices. The Grand Rapids firm plans to work with an architectural company to maintain the building’s historical design during the transformation. Feyen Zylstra also plans to add a warehouse on the southeast corner of the property, located at 2396 Hillside Dr. NW.
Wash says no community members showed up for Wednesday's public hearing about the proposed plan.
