On February 28 the Michigamme Downtown Development Authority received a $258,581.00 grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.
Michigamme Township received the check Saturday morning at their community building at 202 West Main Street in Michigamme.
The Michigamme DDA applied for a streetscape improvement grant. The application included replacing sidewalks, new energy efficient lighting, storm water filtering and retaining rain gardens, handicap accessible sidewalk ramps and gateway signage.
The township is committing $65,000 to match the grant.
Construction is expected to start mid-summer.
