The River Rapids Pedestrian Bridge Committee campaignto raise funds for the Cole Park Improvements Project is succeeding in a big way.
The centerpiece of the planned improvements is the replacement of the historic pedestrian bridge
across the Shiawassee River, which was destroyed by ice floes more than three years ago.
Sen. Roger Kahn and Rep. Ben Glardon present a $300,000 check Monday from the Department of Natural Resources to Chesaning Village President Joe Sedlar, for a project that would create a pedestrian bridge in Cole Park. A separate check, for $10,000, from the Chesaning Downtown Development Authority also was presented. ~snip~
