In excellent news, Granite Ridge has just announced they will not be pursuing the unaccompanied minors program! The full announcement is shown below. They will continue to pursue partners and tenants such as caterers and event planners, sports and camps, performing arts and theater groups and much, much more.
Again, this is the news we have been waiting for and now, perhaps with some great ideas from the entire community, Granite Ridge will become the positive partner for North East we all hoped it would be and know it can be.
UPDATE: There has been some feedback about this announcement concerning the qualifying words “At this time …” and “It is always possible that circumstances may change in the future.” That’s understood and everyone in North East will be watching to be sure they don’t reverse course, but this statement is a huge step in the right direction.
If the community will offer ideas and, if possible, assist with introductions to help find good tenants and partners for the property, we can all play a role in making Granite Ridge a good neighbor and something we can all be proud of. Let’s try to be a part of the solution because that helps everyone.
