LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Wayne Schmidt on Monday applauded the recent awarding of a Clean Michigan Initiative Brownfield Redevelopment Loan of $700,000 to the Grand Traverse County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority.

“Downtown Traverse City is thriving, and this is an important project that will help the city reach its full potential,” said Schmidt, R-Traverse City. “Redevelopment projects like this one have contributed to our state’s comeback, and I thank the DEQ for its continued support of northern Michigan.”

The project, which is for a property located at 124 W. Front St. in Traverse City, was approved in August and announced by the state Department of Environmental Quality last week.
