Muskegon Community College’s downtown project gets financial boost
MUSKEGON, MI – A new entrepreneurial “makerspace” under development downtown by Muskegon Community College has received a $105,000 boost from regional community foundations.
The Grand Haven Area Community Foundation has donated $75,000 and the Community Foundation for Muskegon County has donated $30,000 for the project that will be located in the former Masonic Temple on Third Street.
The prototype development center will be part of the Rooks/Sarnicola Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies. The institute will be physically linked to the college’s Downtown Center being developed in the former Muskegon Chronicle building to house comprehensive applied technology programs, such as welding, CAD and plastics technology.
