Lighthouse conservancy seeks grant

Grand Haven is seeking a grant to be used toward the lighthouses on the south pier.

A grant could result in up to $75,758 being used toward Grand Haven’s lighthouses.

The Grand Haven City Council on Monday approved applying for a Coastal Zone Management grant on behalf of the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy.

The promotion of that federal navigational structure as a tourist destination is wrong. A review of the Injury/death incidents over the years shows that there are no 'safe' days to go out there. I sign at the approach to the south pier clearly says that it was designed as a navigational structure only and advises persons not to go out there, as it was not designed for pedestrian use. My sentiment is that feel free to make the choice to go out on it, but do not influence the decisions of others, except for me of course warning you not to go out, especially with small children.
