“The state has rejected a proposal to dredge 22.5 miles of the Grand River in West Michigan to open it up to power boating.
The proposal came from a group led by West Michigan developer Dan Hibma.
The group, called Grand River Waterway, commissioned an economic impact study that found the project could add $5.7 million per year to the region’s economy.
It would have made a power-boating route available from downtown Grand Rapids to Lake Michigan.”
