Previous Planning Efforts
For over ten years, Traverse City has been part of a precedent setting regional initiative that has garnered national and international attention to restore the Boardman River, including the removal or modification of four dams on the river. The fruits of this initiative will all come to bear in the downtown vicinity.
There have been several interconnected initiatives designed and employed to develop concepts for use and protection of the river and watershed as it unites through Traverse City. In addition to public engagement, previously planning efforts will be reviewed and taken into consideration when crafting the Unified Plan. We encourage you to review the planning efforts, studies, and additional resources and find what intrigues you!
