The North Quarter CIA (Corridor Improvement Authority) is located in Grand Rapids, MI. It is a city board of volunteers that have been appointed by the mayor. Together they work to revitalize the commercial and mixed-use business corridors within the CIA boundaries. They do this by:

  • making permanent, one time improvements in their district
  • hosting marketing and promotional activities
  • providing a forum for discussions on investment and development projects.

The North Quarter CIA includes the Cheshire and Creston business districts along with a portion of North Monroe.
