The Traverse City Bayfront Project That Thinks It Can, Thinks It Can

Meeting Announcement

Tonight the City Commission will hold a study session concerning the 2012 construction project at Clinch park, including the fate of the mini-steam engine train ride. If you have a concern about what the direction that this space will take over the next 40-50 years, please consider attending or sending an email to the commissioners. At this point, they need to be reminded that people have high expectations for a re-imagined waterfront. For a few, that may include keeping a train ride, for many others it does not.

You can view the City Commission packet here or embedded below.

Same train, two views

Also on the agenda and of interest is a discussion of major projects and a 2-year strategic planning process…I know these two topics don’t jump out at you with excitement, but it is an opportunity to see the direction of staff and the commissioners.

If you want to help get the Bayfront project back on a path towards something great, please take a moment today to contact the City Commissioners. They need to be shown some love and support for a waterfront that City residents can be proud of.

    How about making national news by donating the train to the Railroaders Memorial Museum in Altoona, PA. (see http://www.railroadcity.com/) That place has the railroad heritage, and would be a great fit. Would be fantastic national PR for TC to make such a donation.

    Nice article highlighting the best Waterfront Cities and Waterfront Places in the world: http://www.pps.org/articles/greatwaterfronts/ . Many of the “Places” on this list are parks, boardwalks or promenades that make people and place the top priorities, not automobiles or trains.
