GROUND BREAKING

GROUND BREAKING

 Spring is finally here and Middleville is ready to begin the construction of a new community pavilion in Sesquicentennial Park!  Construction is slated to commence during the week of April 6th and you are invited to join us on Thursday, April 2nd at 11:30am for the Groundbreaking Ceremony!  This exciting project is the culmination of three years of planning by the Village of Middleville.  The pavilion, funded in part through a MDNR Trust Fund Grant of $300,000 is also made possible with financial help from village bond proceeds, the Thornapple Trail Association, the Downtown Development Authority, and the Local Development Finance Authority.  The total project cost of $673,510 will cover the construction of the pavilion and parking area, the construction of a new canoe/kayak launch, and the relocation of utilities.  Shortly  following the pavilion groundbreaking, the replacement of the Main Street Bridge, the extension of the Paul Henry Trail, and the installation of a Veterans Memorial will occur.

The pavilion will be a fantastic improvement to the space located across the street from the Thornapple/Paul Henry Trail head.  It will be situated along the East Bank of the Thornapple River right downtown in the heart of the community.  Upon completion, the pavilion will establish itself as a key component in the revitalization of downtown Middleville.  Complimenting other riverbank improvements to the park and trail, the pavilion will act as a gathering place for Middleville residents and visitors alike and serve as an access point to the river and the extended trail.  It will also provide a permanent home for the Farmers Market and will host existing community events and future enrichments.  The pavilion will be a space where everyone has the opportunity to connect, to build and strengthen relationships among community members, visitors and businesses.  It will strengthen Middleville's sense of place and enhance community pride and ownership.  So Make sure you take a few minutes to "Meet in the Middle" and take advantage of all that Middleville has to offer.
