The Holland City Council has decided to not allow items to be placed in public right of ways as spot reservations the night before a parade part of a festival celebrating Holland's Dutch heritage.

The Holland Sentinel reports the council voted 6-2 Wednesday banning placing items to claim spots the night before Saturday's Muziekparade, an event included in the city's Tulip Time festival.

Placing blankets and other items on sidewalks and curbs was previously allowed starting at 9 p.m. the day before.

Tulip Time is right around the corner and the President of Art Bloom joins us to discuss the program, Beautiful Landscapes.

Advanced aged living facility Holland Home this week announced plans on a multi-million dollar expansion at their Breton Campus. Part of a $10 million dollar project entitled “Keeping the Promise, Securing the Future,” Holland Home announced that $3.3 million of that budget will go towards new assisted living facilities at their Breton Campus in Grand Rapids.

Executive Director of Holland Home Sara Heethuis says the demand for the new assisted living facility stems from the recent rise in residents after Holland Home expanded independent living facilities two years ago.

A frozen yogurt business is trying out the idea of making deliveries using a drone in Michigan.

A test run of Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt's drone delivery took place Tuesday at Hope College in Holland.

Dubbed "Project Flying Orange Unicorn," the business says it's planning to offer deliveries from its Orange Leaf Holland store located a few blocks from campus.

The effort is led by Jeremy Latchaw, franchise owner of Orange Leaf locations in Holland and Grandville.
