Trailhead grant awarded to Vicksburg

Vicksburg residents are one step closer to enjoying a new nature trailhead in their neighborhood with help from a Blight Elimination Program grant awarded by the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority.
The $33,000 grant will be used to demolish an old car wash on the future site of the Vicksburg Nature Trailhead. The proposed trailhead will be a municipal-owned public park that connects Vicksburg Recreation Trail to the north and the new trail development to the south that will run through downtown Vicksburg to Angels Crossing Golf Course.
In October 2015, the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority received a $1 million grant from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority to continue efforts to demolish vacant and abandoned structures and promote public safety.
To be eligible for this round of funding, demolition projects had to be blighted residential structures or blighted buildings in business districts, downtowns or commercial corridors.
