East Tawas is a Cool City!

In 2005, East Tawas was one of 8 communities chosen as one of Michigan’s Cool Cities.  Governor Jennifer Granholm kicked off the Cool Cities Initiative in 2003 throughout the State as a strategy to revitalize communities, build community spirit, and retain and attract the jobs and people critical to the emerging economies of the 21st century.  East Tawas received a $15,000 grant to have HyettPalma, a nationally-recognized consulting firm, create a downtown action plan for the City which resulted in the East Tawas Downtown Blueprint 2006.  This designation and blueprint study gives East Tawas additional marketing tools and specific guidelines to promote revitalization efforts throughout downtown.
