NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - Negaunee residents Wednesday night got an update on the city's 'Moving Forward' project. City officials and partners, including the Lake Superior Community Partnership, held a meeting on the project and also gave a state of the city presentation inside the Negaunee High School auditorium.

City Manager Nate Heffron spearheaded the project about two years ago. It's an economic development plan that's seen the rebirth of the city's downtown development authority along with many other projects.

"All municipalities, all companies, all non-profits, we all have plans, now it depends where they sit, are they on the desk being worked on or are they on the shelf somewhere needing to be dusted off, with this partnership we put those plans into action and that makes a big difference in moving a plan forward," said CEO for the LSCP, Amy Clickner.

"We just want folks to understand that we're trying to make government work better for everybody we're here to improve the community as much as possible, we have a comprehensive plan, it's a long-term strategic plan to carry out a lot of different initiatives that the city has needed for a long time," said Negaunee City Manager, Nate Heffron.

Heffron also said if you missed tonight's meeting there will be many other chances for public input as the 'Moving Forward' project continues.
