Editorial: Path along Boardman could be link to downtown


It’s not often a city gets, essentially, a new downtown-like retail area, but that is what the Warehouse District has become. Once the hotel opens, a pedestrian bridge is built and the path on the north bank is built, links to Front Street and downtown should become even stronger.

Outgoing City Manager Ben Bifoss wants the land swaps complete before he retires June 28, which should help ensure they’re completed.

Combined with a proposal from University of Michigan architecture students for additional work along the river presented recently, the city may be discovering what a tremendous asset the Boardman really is, and ways to make use of it.

A new path along the river could help pave the way.
