Advancing Macomb, in partnership with the City of Mount Clemens, the Anton Art Center and the Macomb Family YMCA, has released a call for artists to design and manage the installation of four separate public outdoor paintings. This project will execute the vision of the KaBoom! "Play Everywhere" challenge to bring “play to unexpected but everyday spaces, making it easy and available for kids and families.”
Advancing Macomb, a Macomb County business and community leadership organization representing nearly 900,000 residents and 18,000 businesses, is seeking an executive director. David Girodat, president and chief executive officer of Fifth Third Bank for Eastern Michigan and Advancing Macomb board chair, made the announcement today.
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 announces the addition of two new board members – Thom Lipari of Lipari Foods and Jim Sawyer, President of Macomb Community College.
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.
