It is no secret that Grand Haven is rich in natural beauty and has built a waterfront that attracts visitors from near and far. The City of Grand Haven has invested in the waterfront over may years, whether that be through the construction of popular public amenities, such as the Waterfront Stadium or Splash Pad, or through supporting local business growth downtown or at the Farmers Market. We are fortunate to see the fruits of this investment and are now tasked with continuing these improvements throughout the downtown.
Today we dream Beyond the Pier, looking at the downtown and the waterfront as one place to live, work, and play. Let’s improve equitable waterfront access, invest in the retention and expansion of local businesses, enhance our public spaces, protect our natural features, and support economic development efforts in Downtown and along the Riverfront. Let’s create a community-based vision to guide the right type of growth and continue to support the activity and people who make this community special. Let’s dream together.
