Grants in Action Across the County
This month Boyne City finalized the purchase of a prime property on the waterfront of Lake Charlevoix. This 4.2-acre property sat abandoned for almost ten years and will now be used for public open space in perpetuity.
Charlevoix Historical Society wrapped up the renovation of The Depot just before snowflakes began flying! The updates include new shakes, glazed windows, abundant masonry and carpentry repairs, and restoration to the 1892 paint colors. The new roof is up next on the to-do list thanks to plenty of donor support.
The fourth Green Light East Jordan Business Model Competition recently awarded $15,000 to a variety of categories of hopeful entrepreneurs. This economic development program sends a clear message that East Jordan is welcoming for entrepreneurs and open for business. (Click the logo to see the video!)
Beaver Island Historical Society is making terrific progress toward their goal of replacing the museum’s front porch and building a new addition on the back of the building. These improvements will be safer for visitors and will better display and preserve the collections.
