CELEBRATING MUSKEGON – Public Art Initiative

Following in the footsteps of Moxie, the giant bronze mastodon sculpture outside the Lakeshore Museum Center, and her Minis, who invaded downtown last fall, Muskegon needs your support in introducing its next installation of public art: CELEBRATING MUSKEGON. The city’s wonderful collection of public art has been growing in recent years, and this work in the new traffic circle at Beach and Lakeshore entering the city’s Pere Marquette Park will be the next great addition.

. This is a community effort and cannot happen without your support. Every donation is tax deductible, and 100% of your contribution goes to the public art piece presented below!

Additionally, the Muskegon community is in a position to leverage a dollar-for-dollar match program with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) through its Public Spaces Community Places crowdgranting program. If the $50,000 funding goal is met, every dollar raised through this crowdfunding effort will be matched, dollar-for-dollar by the MEDC; this is an opportunity to essentially double your donation, bringing the total raised to $100,000! Please, support Muskegon’s next public art piece today!

MATS for the 2nd Round of Public Meetings

In July, you spoke, we listened.

On Tuesday, September 24th, we will present potential service improvement scenarios, based on a comprehensive analysis of existing services and feedback received from riders and non-riders through surveys and at the previous round of public meetings, held in July.

Whether you are an existing transit user or simply an interested citizen, we encourage you to attend one of the public outreach sessions to learn about the potential service improvements and share your views on how well each scenario meets the mobility needs of your community.

Public transportation is vital to the future of the Muskegon region. MATS is currently engaged in a Route Study and Comprehensive Operational Analysis that will help set priorities for transit service in the region. The aim of the study is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the existing transit network, and highlight opportunities for service improvement and expansion.

Community participation is vital to the success of this effort.
