Cadillac Receives $1 Million Grant to Redevelop Property

A long-standing eyesore in Cadillac will soon be replaced with a project that will give the city new life.

The Mitchell Bentley manufacturing plant burned down about five years ago. 

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality recently awarded Cadillac with a million dollars to help revitalize the site.

They plan to remove debris, demolish the building and get rid of contaminated soil at the site.

Consumers Energy will invest $500,000 to install four acres of solar panels.

It will provide energy to municipal facilities and industrial businesses.
