The Streetscape project is the result of a $500,000 grant from the state of Michigan. In addition, the DDA applied for a Transportation Enhancement Grant (TEA) from MDOT. In October 2010, the grant was approved for $366,000. The TEA Grant will help add details to the streetscape enhancement. All totaled, we will have $866,000 to enhance downtown.
The project will replace the sidewalks on both north and south Main Street from the tracks to Fennville Tire Center, along with other details. Currently, the state has released the job for bidding. Once the bid has been accepted, we will have a Business Advantage meeting with all businesses affected by the construction. At that time, the construction schedule will be announced.
