The conservancy is calling these “tipping point projects.”
There are four total, including a trail system at Saginaw State University, the cleaning of 10 vacant lots across the city, the renovation of 16-acres at Celebration Square, and a newly paved trail along the city’s riverfront.
Zachary Branigan is the executive director of the Saginaw Basin Conservancy. He said they decided to launch projects in the city a few years ago…
“One thing we really wanted to do is reach out the the community. So over the past year before we started these projects we did a community engagement process. That really involved us going into the community and listening and looking for projects that made sense.”
Branigan said the conservancy is performing around 300 thousand dollars worth of work in the city. He says if all goes as planned, the projects should be completed next year.

Michigan and China have a larger trading relationship than many consumers know. In the past decade, Michigan exports to China have grown by over 200 percent… and the state wants to see that number increase even more.
Officials with the state Department of Agriculture and Rural Development said, Chinese consumers like Michigan dairy products and cherries, and they hope to introduce more Michigan products to Chinese distributors.
Jamie Zmitko-Somers is the International Marketing Program Manager for the department. She said the trade mission aims to represent all Michigan companies.
“This would be for any Michigan companies looking to further their exports into the Chinese market or break into the China market for the first time. So it could be smaller companies or larger companies as well.”
Zmitko-Somers said, the trade mission is planned for this upcoming November. Companies interested in participating can find a link to the application at http://www.michigan.gov/documents/mdard/China-Company_profile_form_528113_7.pdf
