GRDC CELEBRATES 25th ANNIVERSARY 

Dear Friends,

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation. Throughout the years, GRDC has steadfastly pursued its mission to preserve the Grandmont Rosedale neighborhoods and improve the quality of life for all who live and work here.

I am pleased and proud to say that these years of hard work are paying off as Grandmont Rosedale remains a vibrant, diverse, community of choice. This success is due to the dozens of committed board members, hundreds of volunteers, generous donors, and dedicated supporters like you who make our good work possible.

GRDC takes the visions and aspirations of our community and puts them into action. Our broad spectrum of programs includes housing renovation, commercial revitalization, public safety, neighborhood beautification, youth-serving programs and community organizing.

As our city and our community emerge from one of the most challenging periods in our history, GRDC is more committed than ever to building a sustainable community in Grandmont Rosedale neighborhoods. We thank you for your interest and enthusiasm and invite you to continue to join us as we forge a stronger, brighter future for our city and our community in the years to come.

Kind Regards,

Tom Goddeeris
