Project Summary

In the heart of the City of Cheboygan, the Cheboygan River runs with steelhead salmon, rainbow trout, walleye, bass, and sunfish before entering Lake Huron. Its desirable fishing lacks safe access. This project proposes to design permanent or removable fishing piers. The public will be engaged through surveys, a workgroup, and public meetings. Adjacent amenities will include educational signage and an ADA kayak launcher.
