BOYNE CITY MAIN STREET EARNS NATIONAL DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION AWARD

Boyne City Main Street in Boyne City, Michigan is one of three winners of the 2020 Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA), which recognizes communities for their excellence in comprehensive preservation-based commercial district revitalization. Selected by a national jury of community development professionals and leaders in the fields of economic development and historic preservation, Boyne City is being recognized for turning their previously industrial downtown into a thriving destination to live, work, and play.
“Boyne City’s inspiring transformation serves as a model for downtowns looking to appeal to tourists while investing in the quality of life of year-round residents,” said National Main Street Center President and CEO Patrice Frey. “Boyne City Main Street has demonstrated the power of community engagement, strategic business development, and public and private partnerships to revitalize Main Street.”

Located along Lake Charlevoix and the Boyne River in Northern Michigan, Boyne City has harnessed its picturesque waterfront location to become a hub for year-round outdoor recreation. The Main Street program has both enhanced access to natural resources and improved the sense of place downtown, thanks to a streetscape redevelopment project, developing a boardwalk and marina, adding public art, and implementing a façade grant program. A strong roster of events, from outdoor music to food festivals, along with a dedicated volunteer base, has also brought vitality back to downtown.

The Boyne City Main Street program has been a catalyst for economic development. Since the Main Street program got its start, the downtown has seen 91 net new businesses and has a vacancy rate of just 1 percent, down from 5 percent in 2003. The program supports a diverse mix of year-round small businesses, regularly convenes business owners to find new ways to support them, and has championed data-based recruitment and retention efforts.
Throughout the pandemic, Boyne City Main Street has ramped up their small business support, completing multiple rounds of calls to every downtown business owner to check on their needs. The Main Street program has focused on connecting business owners to funding opportunities, helping them get online, and connecting merchants with resources to safely reopen.
While Boyne City has become a popular tourist destination, the Main Street program has deeply invested in its residents. As its downtown grew, Boyne City Main Street has helped tackle an issue facing developing commercial districts across the country: workforce housing. In partnership with the Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Boyne City, several workforce housing initiatives are underway downtown. These multi-use projects will provide income-adjusted housing units, commercial space for shops and restaurants, and market-rate units, which will add substantial revenue to the Main Street budget, provide much-needed housing for the workforce, and add to the vibrancy of downtown.

“The partnerships Boyne City Main Street has been able to build helped get them where they are today,” said Laura Krizov, Manager of Michigan Main Street. “They are so deserving of this award because of the great program they have been able to build. They have worked the Main Street mythology over the last 17 years and the comprehensive approach to revitalizing and managing their downtown is what has brought them to where they are today.”
Boyne City Main Street has developed strong partnerships to move their initiatives forward, raising $16,412,766 in public reinvestment and $29,132,799 in private reinvestment since 2003. When Boyne City needed to move their farmers market inside for the winter, they worked with a range of partners to rehab a pavilion downtown. After seven years of fundraising, Boyne City completed the pavilion, which now hosts the farmers market and other events.

“Although the Great American Main Street Award says ‘Boyne City Main Street’ on the plaque, the award is really for every member of our community,” said Kelsie King-Duff, Executive Director of Boyne City Main Street. “It is for anyone who has shopped at our unique stores, eaten at one of our restaurants, attended an event, and helped make Boyne City what it is today. This is a wonderful way to celebrate what we’ve accomplished so far, and a great reminder that we’re just getting started.”

 
ABOUT THE GREAT AMERICAN MAIN STREET AWARDS
Each year, Main Street America, a program of the National Main Street Center, celebrates the country's best examples of comprehensive commercial district revitalization. Winners are selected from a nationwide pool of applicants by a national jury based on successful and innovative uses of the Main Street Approach.™ Criteria for winning include: overall community transformation; strength of community engagement; entrepreneurship development; approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion; commitment to historic preservation; implementation of model partnerships, and demonstrated success of the Main Street Approach.™
 
ABOUT THE NATIONAL MAIN STREET CENTER

ABOUT BOYNE CITY MAIN STREET
Boyne City Main Street is a grassroots, volunteer-driven program dedicated to the historic preservation and economic development of Boyne City’s downtown. The program follows the national “Main Street Four-Point Approach” to revitalization developed by the National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The four points focus on Organization, Promotion, Economic Vitality, and Design. Boyne City Main Street has been recognized by the state as Michigan’s “Premier Main Street.” In both 2011 & 2019, Boyne City Main Street was a semi-finalist for the Great American Main Street Award, placing in the top 10 for main street programs nationally.

Earlier than the Bird Event

Boyne City Main Street will be kicking off the 2020 holiday season with two fun events – Earlier than the Bird and the Santa Parade & Holiday Open House.

The 13th Annual Earlier than the Bird shopping event is planned for Saturday, November 21 ALL DAY LONG. Kick off the holiday season with friends, family, and shopping specials.

By holding the event the Saturday before Thanksgiving, Boyne City merchants are inviting customers to get an "early bird" preview of all the great holiday shopping available. Shoppers wearing their pajamas receive special deals at many of the stores. Sweats and workout clothes are not considered pajamas. Stop by the log cabin in Sunset Park to drop off your receipt or e-mail a photocopy of your receipt to bcmainstreet@gmail.com to be entered in the drawing to win an Earlier than the Bird coffee mug.

Boyne City Main Street is pleased to partner with the Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce on this event.

Businesses – please submit your Earlier than the Bird special, hours the special will run, and if you offer online shopping, curbside pickup, or delivery to bcmainstreet@gmail.com
Santa Parade & Holiday Open House
 
The Santa Parade & Holiday Open House will take place on Friday, November 27 (the day after Thanksgiving). 
 
This year the parade will be stationary - meaning the floats will stay in one spot and the people watching will be the ones moving. The floats will be set up around the loop in Veteran's Park. Cars can enter from State Street and drive the loop to view the floats (with Santa at the end, as always!). The drive-thru parade will take place from 6-8 p.m. You can view the official parade poster here. If you would like to have a float of your own the application can be found here. Be sure to visit your favorite downtown restaurant for a bite to eat before or after the parade, and the shops are sure to have a ton of unique gifts for everyone on your list!
 
Family Fare partners with Good Neighbors Food Pantry during scan campaign to provide hunger relief

Store guests who visit Family Fare in Boyne City through Sunday, Nov. 8 will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5, $10, or round up their purchase at any checkout lane—and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit Boyne City’s Good Neighbors Food Pantry.

Throughout the year, SpartanNash—and its family of retail stores, including Family Fare—underwrites companywide retail scan campaigns in partnership with its charitable giving arm, the SpartanNash Foundation. The current campaign supports the Foundation’s mission of providing hunger relief in our communities, and each of SpartanNash’s corporate-owned stores is partnering with a nearby food pantry.

In 2019, The SpartanNash Foundation’s scan campaign to provide hunger relief raised $271,000 to support more than 100 local food pantries and food banks. This year’s campaign will happen over the course of 12 days, with participating stores and fuel centers in eight states.

One hundred percent of all funds raised by Family Fare in Boyne City will go directly to Good Neighbors, which will in turn have a huge impact on the food insecure families it serves through its onsite community food pantry.

For more information on the SpartanNash’s campaigns, visit https://www.spartannash.com/corp-responsibility/foundation/retail-scan-partners/. For more information on Good Neighbors Food Pantry, visit www.goodneighborsboyne.org, email goodneighborsboyne@gmail.com, or call 231-497-8677.
Grants Awarded for Beaver Island, Boyne City, Charlevoix, and East Jordan

The Community Foundation responded to requests from nonprofit partners in four geographic areas in Charlevoix County in October. Thanks to donors who look to the Community Foundation to make a difference close to home, grants have been awarded to nonprofits who will work to improve the quality of life on Beaver Island, in Boyne City, Charlevoix and East Jordan. In all, over $93,000 was awarded during the Geographic Enrichment cycle.

On Beaver Island, grants will help the Beaver Island Historical Society to replace the flooring of the Print Shop Museum; the Baroque on Beaver Festival will work on rebranding and redesigning their website, and the Dorothy Gerber Strings Program will again be available to Beaver Island students.

In Boyne City, the City of Boyne City will be installing wayfinding signage along the new bike trail that runs from Boyne City to Boyne Falls, and an important children’s bereavement program will be available to Boyne City students through the McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation.

Charlevoix will feel a focus on its rich history; the Charlevoix Historical Society will archive a large donation of historic documents, photos, slides and more, and the City of Charlevoix will work with them to also install new signage designating the Earl Young Historic District, making it easier for visitors to find their way around. The Charlevoix Circle of Arts will make an important improvement to their facility.

East Jordan will see a new childcare center open, called Training Wheels Childcare Center. This program will provide much needed childcare to support working parents. East Jordan Public Schools will embark on a vape sensor pilot program and they will also provide more outdoor learning experiences for students, including snowshoeing and more classes being held outdoors. The City of East Jordan will continue improving City parks, including those along the waterfront. Visit c3f.org for a complete list of grants made through the Geographic Enrichment cycle.

A charitable organization dedicated to improving and enriching life in the area, the Charlevoix County Community Foundation accepts gifts from individuals, families, businesses and civic groups and manages them as permanent endowments. While a portion of the funds are utilized to support grantmaking, the principal of the endowment continues to grow, providing ongoing charitable capital to benefit Charlevoix County’s residents—now and in the future.

The next grant cycle will focus on Environment, Land Use, and Recreation projects. Applications will become available in December and will be due by Monday, February 1, 2021. The Community Foundation welcomes inquiries about applying for grants anytime by emailing Ashley Cousens at acousens@c3f.org. More information about each grant cycle can be found at c3f.org on the “Apply for a Grant” page.

Health Department of Northwest Michigan COVID-19 Update

November 4th - The Health Department of Northwest Michigan is reporting 28 new confirmed cases in Antrim (8), Charlevoix (4), Emmet (13), and Otsego (3) counties. Today we are also reporting 2 deaths in Emmet county. Case investigation and contact tracing are in progress, and relevant information will be shared when it is available.

If you have been notified that you were exposed to someone with COVID-19, we will ask that you stay home for 14 days from your last exposure to that individual. A negative test does not replace or end the 14-day quarantine because one can still develop symptoms and test positive for COVID-19. If you develop symptoms, we will assist you in locating and getting tested in addition to receiving any necessary medical care.
“We have received several questions daily from residents about possible exposures in our communities,” stated Lisa Peacock, Health Officer. “This is a reminder that if you decide to go into a public place, you are at risk of coming into contact with COVID-19. If you are contacted by the Health Department, we ask you to stay in quarantine for the full 14 days to stop the spread and contact your primary care provider or the health department if you start showing symptoms to help get you tested. We extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the community members we have lost to this illness and encourage everyone to do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19.” Today we are reporting case investigation information for 34 confirmed COVID-19 cases. All 34 cases are being reported in our jurisdiction.

Stay up to date on the latest information in the Health Department jurisdiction by liking and following our Facebook page and visiting our COVID-19 Data Dashboard. To locate a testing facility, visit the Michigan COVID-19 Test Finder website. To track the risk levels of COVID-19 pandemic indicators, visit the MI Safe Start Map website.

Flu season 2020: “Give it a shot”

Staying protected during the flu season is more important than ever. Not only is the flu a serious illness, it can also be a huge burden due to stress placed on our health care system, costs related to medical treatment, sick days and lost productivity from employees being off work.

The flu vaccine is a smart way to reduce an individual’s chance of getting the flu and benefits everyone around them. Encourage your members to “give it a shot” this year. Share the attached helpful tips and resources to make sure they get the right information, understand the importance of the flu shot and know where to get vaccinated.
Charlevoix County Conservation District Seeks Input on County Plat Book

The County plat book is a small fundraiser for the Charlevoix Conservation District, and a service we've provided every 3-4 years, dating back to the 1980's. In recent years publishing costs have increased making it challenging for the district to do much more than break even. Ads from local businesses assist tremendously with publishing costs, however as you are well aware, the current health crisis has caused many businesses to reprioritize their advertising budget, among other things.
 
In this brief (1 minute), 5 question survey we would greatly appreciate hearing from you - our local landowners (year-round or summer), businesses owners and partners - to learn how important the county plat book is to you.
 
Your answers will help us determine if we should postpone yet another year, or consider ending this service entirely.  For questions about the plat book, please contact District Manager, Alison Adams at 231-582-6193, or alison.adams@macd.org. Thank you for your support!
