Since the project began, the Sustainable Small Harbors project team has led a diverse selection of Michigan coastal communities through an in-depth visioning process. Thanks to grant funding, the team has been able to provide highly interactive, public input-driven design events — typically valued at tens of thousands of dollars — at no direct cost to the communities.
