Ludington City Council held a meeting Monday night at the Municipal Building. Many issues on the agenda were addressed after the new public comment portion was explored. There is now a three minute agenda specific public comment time at the opening of the meeting followed by a two minute public comment period at the close of the meeting.
The first large item on the agenda was discussion of the West End of Ludington Avenue. The plan involves cement work and beautification of the area directly at the end of the Ludington Avenue.
Next up came the approval of the several agreements that deal with the ‘Bowling Alley Block’ and the possible construction of a new fire station on the former Lake Shore Lumber Site on Tinkham Avenue. Along with a new fire station the old one would be demolished in one plan with the construction of commercial and residential rental properties to occupy the site. The buildings would be four stories with commercial occupying the first floor and 60 units in two proposed buildings to be available to the elderly on the second through fourth floors and the other building would be low-income housing on the second through fourth floors.
