Farewell, Elisa!

We are full of mixed emotions! We are very excited for Elisa to join the wonderful staff at Macatawa Area Express Transit but also sad that we won’t get to see her each and every day here at our office!

Lucky for us though, this isn’t goodbye. MAX has been a long-time partner of the Macatawa Area Coordinating Council, so we will still be working on projects together and will see Elisa monthly at our Technical Committee meetings!

Over the past ten years, Elisa has developed multiple Long Range Transportation Plans, has been the coordinator for the West Michigan Clean Air Coalition here in the Holland/Zeeland area, she was instrumental in starting our area’s annual Green Commute Week, and has helped our local transportation system grow in amazing ways.

Elisa, we sincerely appreciate your commitment and service to our community.
Thank you!

Communtiy Transportation Survey

The MACC wants your input! We are in the process of updating our Transportation Improvement and Long Range Transportation Plans (LRTP). The LRTP specifically looks ahead 25+ years at the needs of our community. Twenty-five years is a substantial amount of time, so taking this survey will help us create better plans well into the future!

The 2018 Transportation Survey should take around 8 minutes to complete.

If you or someone you know needs an alternative format of this survey, give us a call or email us, we’d love for everyone to be able to participate! MACC office: (616) 395-2688 or email: info@the-macc.org

Leaves and Storm Drains

If you live in the City of Holland or Zeeland and have curbside leaf pickup, here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare your leaf pile for pickup:
  • Only leaves in the pile. No branches or other yard waste.
  • Piles must be in the street, not in your yard.
  • Keep piles away from utility poles, guy wires, fire hydrants, and mailboxes that may block equipment access.
  • Only place piles on your property, not your neighbors.
  • Do not pile leaves on storm drains. Leaves can become water pollution and/or block the storm sewer which could lead to flooding.
