Railroad Square Nears Completion

Kalkaska’s Railroad Square sits on a former contaminated brownfield site at the heart of the village’s downtown. Once an abandoned lumberyard, this community hub will include a permanent home for the farmer’s market, a food truck court with a fire pit, a four-season pavilion with restrooms and an incubator kitchen, facade improvements for the historical museum, a new clock tower fronting US-131, and street parking and storm water runoff improvements at the adjacent Maple Street. An event lawn with bench seating, a pedestrian trail, and a plant buffer to guard the existing rail line are among the anticipated landscape additions.
