Ideas for downtown Port Huron pour in!

Posted on March 28, 2008

The Destination: Port Huron task force has been overwhelmed with ideas and suggestions from other organizations, businesses and people.  Since early March the task force has been asking the public to submit their ideas on how to revitalize Port Huron’s downtown.  Well over 250 ideas were submitted.

The task force will weed out duplicates and narrow the submissions down to a more manageable number for a public vote that will be held April 3rd at the Port Huron High School Performing Arts Center.  The public is invited to attend this session, which begins at 6:00 p.m.  The first 200 people will be able to participate in the voting process using a hand-held wireless voting system.

The Destination: Port Huron project was created by local residents and organizations to help create a vision plan for the downtown.  Among the partnering organizations are the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce, Port Huron Downtown Development Authority, Community Foundation of St. Clair County, Mainstreet Port Huron and the Blue Water Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. 

Beginning later in April and continuing through the rest of the year, the task force will make efforts to implement and develop those ideas that are feasible and have the greatest potential for impact. 

Through at least the end of 2009 the Community Foundation has pledged its support for efforts to revitalize all of the waterfront downtowns stretching from Algonac up to Sanilac County.
