Downtown development authority gets ready to blossom into Spring

ISHPEMING — Now that the snow is gone, one local development authority is looking to make sure spring is in full bloom.

The Ishpeming Downtown Development Authority discussed numerous topics at their meeting Monday and one of the biggest issues focused around the problem getting volunteers for the beautification committee. The Spring Clean–Up date has yet to be finalized but the DDA would like to have volunteers ready to start cleaning up the flower beds around the area to prep for new flowers to be planted.

Also discussed at the meeting were issues concerning the facade improvement grant program and the possibility of holding another joint meeting with the City Council. The next DDA meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 18.
