In about a month, the corner of Macomb and Meridian is expected to be more user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing.
After about a year in the planning stages, a Downtown Development Authority project at Macomb Commons has begun.
The DDA reviewed the landscaping design last summer and received bids in the fall, Township Manager Dale Reaume said.
B & L Landscaping of Allen Park won the project. The projected $225,587 cost will come from DDA funds.
Before the work began, a lot of trees were around the perimeter of the site, Reaume said.
The Ile Camera: Work continues this week at the corner of Meridian and Macomb. Supervisor Kurt Kobiljak said yesterday that the area, which will be used for Chair-Arty, will be ready for IslandFest weekend. "I was told today that the charity event will go on and it will be finished," he said. This weekend, residents can use the sidewalks and the gazebo, but people will be asked to stay off the sod, he said. Some finishing touches will be completed later.

The plan is under the Grosse Ile Recreation Department's master plan for 2005-2010.
The current Water's Edge marina master plan especially highlighted the introduction of a new waterfront park at Water's Edge, among other facility upgrades.
