Boat Launch and Trailhead Improvements
The Village of Saranac had plans on improving trail facilities and water access on a 2-acre site adjacent to the Boat Launch Park along the Fred Meijer Grand River Trail. The Village applied for and received a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) grant to develop and construct a trailhead parking lot, a restroom/pavilion building and universally accessible trail connections, parking and fishing pier.
F&V assisted the Village with conceptual design stage development grant application preparation, topographical survey, design engineering, EGLE permitting (construction in the floodway/floodplain), bidding and construction engineering.
The Village improved recreational facilities and provided access and parking for boats and kayaks to the Grand River and a family-oriented, user-friendly staging area for all trail enthusiasts.
