Event Title: Dedication of Soren Wolff Way
Date/Time: Sat, Sep 14th 1:30pm
Location: Hope College, Ray and Sue Smith Football Stadium, 313 Fairbanks Ave., Holland, MI
UPDATE: See video of the dedication here.
In honor of Soren Wolff’s over 25 years of service to the City of Holland, the Holland City Council has renamed the entrance road into the Hope athletic facilities and Smallenburg Park as Soren Wolff Way. Mayor Kurt Dykstra will be making this dedication during halftime at this Saturday’s (September 14, 2013) Hope College football game. The timing of this is especially appropriate as Saturday is the annual Community Day celebration.
Soren served the residents of the City of Holland as an Assistant City Manager from 1975-1979; and as City Manager from 1988-2011. Soren was the driving force behind numerous capital improvements in the City, including the initial construction of the football stadium to benefit the residents of the City of Holland, Holland Public Schools and Hope College.
Soren implemented innovative programs to make city government more efficient and responsive; advocated for area wide cooperation and consolidation of services; and played a key role in cooperative efforts between private industries, associations, and individuals with the City. He set the standard for honest, transparent, and ethical conduct in all government affairs of the City.
Soren Wolff retired on September 6, 2011.
