Council may approve grant submission for Ludington Ave improvements

March 18, 2013

LUDINGTON — Ludington City Council will take a step forward in improving the west end of Ludington Avenue tonight during its regular meeting. It is expected to adopt a resolution to submit a $300,000 grant with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. The grant will help offset costs of the $479,000 project.

The city  is looking to create improved pedestrian access at the Lake Michigan waterfront. The project would provide universal access to people with disabilities by constructing a concrete walkway through the sandy beach area to connect the existing north breakwater leading to the lighthouse to the west end of Ludington Avenue. It would also include a promenade designed to hold a 60-foot by 100-foot tent for special events.

Council meets at 6:30 p.m. at city hall.
