City of Cadillac Receives Large Grant To Help The Heritage Park Project

"This was an absolute banner day for the city of Cadillac"

Excitement for a local city, as a downtown project gains more momentum for completion.

On Friday, Consumers Energy Foundation presented a check for $50,000 to help the development of the Heritage Park Project in Cadillac.

The city began working on upgrades for the park this week.

It’s part of several projects underway in the Cadillac Commons area.

This one is located off Lake Street, between Cass and Harris Streets.            

Cadillac’s city manager says it’s one of the larger grants they’ve received and will give them the momentum to finish the project.

"The plaza project is going to include some wonderful amenities that people of all ages can enjoy, ranging from an outdoor fireplace area, to a synthetic ice rink, to a splash pad" Says Cadillac City Manager, Marcus Peccia. "The grant that was received today from the Consumers Energy Foundation is going to really make this a reality"

Full construction for the park is set to begin in the coming weeks.
