TRAVERSE CITY- The City of Traverse City is moving forward through the design process for the proposed public pier and the project team will present the results of the design workshops at the City Commission meeting on Monday, February 2, 2015 (in the Commission Chambers at the Government Center, located at 400 Boardman Avenue) at 7:00 p.m.
The workshops held over the last three months focused on considering the best site for the proposed pier, and what activities it should include. The consensus built through a series of stakeholder and public meetings is that the pier should be located on the west side of the mouth of the Boardman River.
A workshop on December 11, 2014 further considered pier design options for the selected site, as well as opportunities to link the site to downtown. The consultant team will present the Schematic Design to the commission for the identified site, as well as initial thoughts on phasing and funding approaches.

The City Commission will be asked to approve the Schematic Design Phase to move the project into the Preliminary Design Phase. This study and design development is fully funded by a $232,000 Great Lakes Fishery Trust Grant.
