While the major restoration project is moving forward, there's one thing that must be done first.

According to ABC12, the state must sign off on a plan to remove two Genesee County Dams before the Flint Riverfront project can fully move forward. So it's not a 100% done deal but things are looking positive. I fully support any changes in the downtown area help clear up any eyes sores.

Residents still have ten days to reach out to the Michigan DEQ, then they'll decide whether or not to issue the permit to proceed.
