ROGERS CITY, Mich. – Rogers City’s Downtown Development Authority met Tuesday to discuss several issues of business including upcoming plans for celebrating the city’s one hundred and 150th anniversary.
Presque Isle County which includes Rogers City will celebrate the city’s sesquicentennial as community in the summer of 2021. The DDA said plans are underway which includes putting together a committee to help plan summer events. Also discussed were the DDA’s efforts to apply for a bid in the Michigan Main Street Program.
The program assists communities interested in revitalizing and preserving their traditional commercial districts. DDA members said while the process to earn a bid is tedious, their commitment is a huge factor in being part of the program.
“Is the board active, and are they participating, and are they going to support the initiative, that’s critical,” said Rogers City DDA Board member Scott McLennan.
The organization plans to submit their bid application for Michigan Main Street in July of 2021.
