Holland's progressive initiatives, such as the current redevelopment along 8th street, have been a long time coming and DeBoer has been pivotal in assuring they come to life.
DRIVEN WITH CITY PLANNING
After 20 years of discussions, DeBoer spearheaded the remodeling of the Civic Center without any additional tax burdens to the people of Holland.
DRIVEN TO FINISH WHAT SHE STARTED
The Waterfront Initiative under DeBoer's influence is utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach to set a vision to transform our community's former coal burning power plant acreage into a treasured waterfront property.
SINCERE TO HER PROMISES
Nancy "tied herself to the railroad tracks" to get the Civic Center accomplished. It became a reality with all those she appointed and volunteered to make a difference. From Cub Scout meetings to reading nights to 100 year old birthday parties, Nancy tries to help educate and celebrate the community we love.
SINCERE TO OUR PEOPLE
Festivals that celebrate the diversity in nationalities who make up the fabric of Holland such as Fiesta, Family Freedom Festival (Juneteenth), and Cinco de Mayo. Nancy believes all of Holland's people matter.
SINCERE TO HERSELF
At the culmination of her time in Michigan West Coast Leadership, she committed to building into the success of others, whatever form that took.
More people want to live here than can find housing, at all levels of the housing spectrum. I'm invested in growing the Holland Community, creatively and responsibly.
Holland's waterfront is the current creative conversation in Holland. Let's envision it's future development, together.
Holland's community has an abundance of jobs without enough job-seekers. With regional public and private partnerships, we can strategize for a better future.
