Please provide your input on potential ways to improve the educational capacity, use of green space, and available infrastructure at the FishPass (Union Street Dam) site. Your responses will be used to inform the project team’s efforts to complete a preliminary engineering and architectural design for this one-of-a-kind space!
The existing site is used in various educational capacities by various groups including residents, tourists, the children’s museum, and Northwestern Michigan College.
The existing site provides some limited green space, which has been used for public leisure, transportation routes, and fishing.
The existing site provides a bridge to cross the Boardman River, a walkway along the south bank, and a fishing/viewing platform.
