On Tuesday, April 11, 2017 the leadership team from the Grand Rapids Neighborhood Summit debuted a video highlighting this past Summit's record number of attendees, workshops, sponsors and community participation to the Grand Rapids City Commission.

Stacy Stout, Assistant to the City Manager said, "The Grand Rapids Neighborhood Summit is not just an event, it's a call to action. This video is a reminder of what we learned and a reminder of that call to action. Our hope is that people will continue to host block parties or do so for the first time, continue to reach out to their neighbors, continue to organize."
