​​​Project Description

The 721 North Main project, a component of the North Main-Huron River Corridor Project​, is intended to determine the best use of this site as part of the overall vision developed by the North Main - Huron River Visio​n Task Force.

A 721 North Main Technical Committee will be providing the necessary technical expertise and input needed to develop a conceptual plan as a basis for potential grant applications. ​​ 

Project Update:

The City applied for a Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) Trust Fund Grant for the project in the floodway portion of 721 N Main. The City's project was not selected for the MDNR Trust Fund grant. The City's application was among 142 grant applications MDNR received.
