City to sell $20M in bonds for downtown convention center

MUSKEGON, MI — City officials plan to sell $20 million in bonds to pay for the construction and furnishing of a proposed $15 million convention center in the heart of downtown Muskegon.

 

The Muskegon City Commission approved a resolution of intent to sell capital improvement bonds Tuesday.

 

City and county leaders hope the convention center will boost tourism throughout the year. It is also expected to help bolster sagging winter occupancy numbers for downtown and surrounding Muskegon-area hotels.
