On behalf of the City, the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP) applied for, and was awarded, a $2.5M grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation for the Lakeshore Boulevard Reconstruction Project.

The Marquette Lakeshore Restoration grant is funded through the National Coastal Resiliency Program administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Although 35 coastal resiliency projects were funded nationally, only two projects were located on the Great Lakes (see map). If the project is approved by the City Commission, the City will be required to provide a local match of $3M. The SWP will also provide $50,000 in match funds.

There will be a public information session on this topic held on April 3rd in the Citizens' Forum room at Lakeview Arena. More information can be found at: www.marquettemi.gov/lakeshoreblvd/
