New Baltimore Marina
This public marina redevelopment will help provide additional public access to Lake St. Clair and support development throughout the community.  New Baltimore is home to an historic downtown and public beach.  This project will be a major addition to the waterfront assets in the Detroit Region for boaters and non-boaters alike.

Roseville downtown redevelopment
The City of Roseville is at the intersection of 4 main corridors in Macomb County.  These corridors are major regional corridors that connect the community and economic assets throughout the Detroit Region.  The city has embarked on an aggressive redevelopment strategy that includes the successful redevelopment of the Macomb Mall and several established properties throughout the city.  Roseville was the first city in Michigan to attain “Redevelopment Ready” status.

Macomb Children’s Museum
A project proposed by a several key community leaders in Macomb County, the Macomb Children’s Museum seeks to provide a “hands-on” experience for children throughout Macomb and the Detroit Region.  The museum will provide the basis for STEAM education in order to encourage continued technical capability in our children and future talent base.

Water Towns
Organized by the Clinton River Watershed, the WaterTowns program provides a basis for place-making and environmental stewardship for communities located along the Clinton River.

Macomb Bike Trails
Spearheaded by the Macomb County Department of Planning and Economic Development, the bike trails program seeks to develop a 70-mile loop through the county and connection to the state-wide Iron Belle trail system.  Building on the already popular Macomb Orchard Trail and Freedom Trail, the county will be completing new trail connections in the fall of 2016 and spring of 2017.
