New Buffalo to Redevelop Waterfront


The city of New Buffalo, Michigan, will be creating a master plan to redevelop its waterfront thanks to a $51,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Rural Development. 

“With the redevelopment of our downtown completed over the last few years we have been wanting to shift our focus to the waterfront area as it is both an important resource to our local residents and a significant economic driver for the community attracting tens of thousands of visitors every year,” New Buffalo Mayor Lou O’Donnell said in a statement. “This project will continue the strategy of making investments that benefit our residents and the overall sustainability of the community.” 

The planning phase will begin this fall and will be completed in the spring of 2020. The planning area stretches from the Whittaker Street Bridge to Lake Michigan.
