TRAVERSE CITY — More than a half dozen local agencies and institutions received state grants for coastal zone management projects.
Among the recipients are the Fishtown Preservation Society in Leland and Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City. The state issued more than $1.4 million in grants across Michigan.
A $40,000 grant will be used to develop architectural plans to preserve historic structures in Fishtown, while a $38,000 grant will be used to continue NMC's hydrographic surveys in Grand Traverse Bay.
Funding for the grants came from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration through the state Department of Natural Resources and Environment's coastal management program.
