Earlier this year the Northern Lakes Economic Alliance (NLEA) announced that the Village of Central Lake was working on an application for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). The grant covered several phases of items, including:
- Phase 1 – five new permanent docks in Thurston Park (Complete)
- Phase 2 – a 40’x70’ pavilion with adjacent public restrooms, and a 21’x19’ storage room on the corner of North and Main Street.
Project elements also include a water and sewer line for the restrooms, tree removal at the pavilion site, and preparation of the pavilion parking lot.
In May, the Village was officially awarded over $250,000 to complete this project. GFA provided engineering and design for the docks. Now complete, residents and visitors of Central Lake will be able to enjoy these docks year-round.
GFA will continue to work with Village Council to complete the design and plans for the new pavilion and restrooms, looking to construct by early fall 2019. Stay tuned for pavilion updates. Read the full article here!
