HANCOCK -- The City of Hancock will hold a special City Council PUBLIC HEARING and Meeting at 6 p.m. TODAY, Tuesday, March 30, via Zoom, to consider the MNRTF (Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund) acquisition grant application for the Navy Street Trail. 

"The City of Hancock is  applying for the MNTRF acquisition grant to purchase 1000 feet of the Navy Street Trail," said Mary Babcock, Hancock City Manager. "The grant will allow public access to the waterfront trail that is currently unavailable. This property is owned by Carmody Lahti Real Estate and Finlandia University."

Should the City receive the grant, the trail would be non-motorized, Babcock added.
