East Jordan Cuts the Ribbon for Joining Jordan Project

On Monday, East Jordan cut the ribbon on the city’s new Joining Jordan project.

The project cost over $2 million with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation taking care of most of the funds.

It completely upgrades the walkway near the marina and links the east and west sides of the city together.

Along with the walkway, they also added two pavilions and a waterfront park.

Chairman of the East Jordan Downtown Development Authority, Tom Teske, said it also allows for the possibility of future projects. “We also feel very fortunate that it opens up some other parcels for redevelopment that we hope to have private redevelopment come forth,” he said.

Teske says East Jordan was responsible for only 10 percent of the money needed for the project.
