The Advancing Macomb board answered a call to help provide gap funding for the new recreation and launch site on the Clinton River in Mt. Clemens. Final bids for the project came in much higher than anticipated due to additional engineering needed to lower ongoing maintenance costs. The Clinton River Watershed Council spearheaded the project as a part of its broader Watertowns® initiative.
Advancing Macomb completed the very first county-wide bike drive and give-away on Saturday, May 20th. The program began in the fall of 2016 with Macomb County and neighboring residents donating a total of 800 bikes to township and city hall offices.
It's a giveaway that puts smiles on the faces of hundreds of Macomb County children. The East Side Bike Giveaway, helping to hand out 600 bicycles. FOX 2's Ryan Ermanni has the story.
