“Dan Hibma, a prominent West Michigan developer, is the lead supporter of the Grand River Waterway project, a controversial push to open the river to larger powerboats by dredging a stretch between Grand Rapids and Lake Michigan.
He’s also one of the biggest private property owners along the river.
An MLive analysis of property records shows Hibma owns 145 acres of undeveloped property along the river near the M-11 bridge in Walker, making him the third largest private land owner along the 23-mile portion of the river covered by the proposed project. Hibma also owns three adjacent parcels that don’t touch the river but encompass about 43 acres.”
