Grant for Regional Ports Study Awarded

Thanks to Ray Spain for ther following story:

A regional study will be performed on ports in Alpena, Cheboygan and Rogers City.
The Northeast Michigan Council of Governments (NEMCOG) has received $26,000 from the state’s Coastal Management Program to perform the study, which over the long term could help expand opportunities for commerce and recreation at the three ports.
The short term goal is to provide the foundation for further development of existing ports by completing an inventory of port and community assets; and identifying opportunities and constraints, strategies for future activities, and opportunities for regional collaboration.
A new Regional Ports Committee will meet in the near future to discuss the project scope.
Michigan’s Coastal Management Program was developed under the federal Coastal Zone Management Act and approved in 1978. Since then, the program has assisted organizations in protecting and enhancing their coastal areas, funded studies related to coastal management and helped to increase recreational opportunities in Michigan’s Great Lakes coastal area.
