(New Buffalo, MI) - Improvements at the lakefront are planned in New Buffalo. The city has obtained a $250,000 state grant, according to City Manager, David Richards. Richards said the money will help pay for a new dune walk at the beach. The existing one with stairs will be replaced with one that has all ramps, he said.
Richards said the grant will pay for just over half of the project estimated at $450,000. Money from the city and the casino will be sought to cover the rest of the expenses. He expects the new dune walk to be finished by next summer. Richard said the existing dune walk is now closed because of falling into disrepair.
