Owosso DDA seeks improvements

Posted: Tuesday, September 17, 2013 11:15 am
OWOSSO — Council Monday gave its nod of approval to the Downtown Development Authority to seek 
a grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation that would help redevelop several aspects 
of  the area along the Shiawassee River near the former National Guard armory.

Assistant City Manager and DDA Manager Adam Zettel presented the plan, which would include expanded
parking on Curwood Drive, the demolition and relocation of the Shiawassee Chamber of Commerce 
building on North Water Street, reconfiguration of parking at the armory, additional kayak launches,
a Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee trail head and more if the potential $700,000 Downtown Infrastructure Grant
is received.

With potential matches from DDA ($200,000), the city ($125,000) and others,

 the total project cost could be closer to $1.5 million, Zettel said.
