The future of Muskegon depends to a great extent on the future development of five key parcels on the lakefront. There are no other cities in Michigan that have such a valuable resource (the largest harbor in Western Michigan).
While the old industries are now off the lake….there is still a need for commercial property as well as maintaining the natural environment.
The key factor will be that each parcel meet the lifetime-long term value test. Muskegon Lake and the Great Lakes are valuable resources that should not be misused.
