The City of New Buffalo’s Lake Michigan waterfront is both an important amenity for local residents and a significant economic driver supporting hundreds of jobs in the community every year. Abonmarche has been a community partner for many years and was engaged to provide technical expertise in developing a Waterfront Master Plan to support the City’s goal of redeveloping the waterfront area to ensure it continues to be a key part of the local economy as well as meet the needs and expectation of local residents.
The Abonmarche team worked with local staff and stakeholders through a public process to create a vision for the waterfront, identify priority projects and design the community that they could all be proud of. This process involved several opportunities for the public to be involved in decision making and setting goals.
