    Mr. Harrington,
    I work with the Department of Natural Resources' federal Land and Water
    Conservation Fund (LWCF} program. The LWCF is a federal grant program
    through the National Park Service. This program provided a grant to the
    City of Muskegon to develop Fisherman's Landing in 1976. I spoke with
    Tom Hamilton at a recent conference we both attended regarding this
    project. He sent me an article from the Muskegon Chronicle that states
    the operation of the site will be done by Fisherman's Landing, Inc.
    under a seven year agreement between the city and the organization.

    Our office had been contacted a few years back regarding the possible
    sale of the property to a developer. This would have resulted in what
    we refer to as a conversion of use. When the city received the grant,
    they agreed to keep the property in public outdoor recreation in
    perpetuity.

    In light of this agreement With Fisherman's Landing, Inc., has the city
    dropped the proposed sale of the land? If so, how would I get a copy of
    the agreement? Since there were federal funds used to develop this
    site, we will also need to send the agreement to the National Park
    Service for their review.

    Thank you for your assistance. If you have any questions, please feel
    free to contact me.

               THIS AGREEMENT is made effective on the 1st day of August, 2006 between
MUSKEGON/MUSKEGON HEIGHTS OPERATION WEED AND SEED of Muskegon,
Michigan ("Weed & Seed") and THE MUSKEGON POLICE DEPARTMENT of 980
Jefferson Street, Muskegon, MI 49440 the Muskegon Heights Police Department, 2715 Baker St
Muskegon Heights, Michigan 49444 ("Police Departments").

                                      Preliminary Statement

               Weed & Seed is an organization, funded in majority by federal grants, whose
purpose is to improve the lives of the residents and business owners in a community by working
with local law enforcement to identify and correct problem areas in the community and to
provide assistance to residents through the implementation of social programs. Weed & Seed
has two target areas: one is located in Muskegon Heights and includes census tracts 12 and 13.
The second target area is located in Muskegon and includes census tracts 2,3,4,5,6.01,6.02 and 7.
("Communities"). Residents, businesses, and community-based organizations identified several
areas of concern in their neighborhoods. Foremost among these concerns are reducing loitering
and juvenile crime, reducing recidivism rates of offenders.

              Based upon the priorities identified, Weed & Seed submitted a grant proposal
requesting federal funds to be used to assist the Police Department in addressing the law
enforcement concerns of the Community. Weed & Seed was awarded a grant in the amount of
Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000.) Weed & Seed has agreed to designate Ninety Seven
Thousand ($97,000) for the Weed component implemented by the Police Departments for Fiscal
Year 2006/07. This amount will be divided equality between Muskegon and Muskegon Heights.

The Police Departments and community proposed several initiatives geared toward addressing
the residents' concerns. They include Juvenile Crime, Recidivism, Increased Police Presence
(the "Initiatives"). The Weed & Seed grant monies will address the above initiatives and other
areas that fall within the Department of Justice guidelines for grant monies as determined by the
members of the Steering Committees. Weed & Seed and the Police Departments desire to
document the terms under which the proceeds shall be applied towards the implementation of the
Initiatives, in a manner that will comply with the federal restrictions on the use of grant proceeds.



                                            Agreement

         IN CONSIDERATION OF THE FOREGOING AND THE MUTUAL

each of the twelve (12) months following the execution of this Agreement the Police
Departments shall provide Weed & Seed with a monthly report summarizing the steps taken
towards accomplishing the Initiatives and detailing the costs incurred by the Police Departments
in pursuit of the Initiatives (the "Monthly Report"). Weed & Seed shall review the Monthly
Report and shall reimburse the Police Departments for all costs, which, in Weed & Seed's
discretion, are incurred in furtherance of the Initiatives as provided in this Agreement. All
reimbursements shall be made from the grant proceeds, up to Ninety Seven Thousand Dollars
($97,000) (the "Grant"). Weed & Seed shall make all reimbursement payments by check.

                2.      Police Departments Initiatives. The Police Department shall implement
the Initiatives as designated in the Official Recognition and subsequent applications for funding
to the Department of Justice.

                3.     Use of Grant. Use of the Grant monies shall be at the discretion of the
Police Departments and Weed & Seed towards the accomplishment of the Initiatives, within the
criteria established in this Agreement. The majority shall be used to bring officers into the
Community on an overtime basis working towards accomplishment of the Initiatives. The Grant
shall be expended by the Police Departments within the twelve (12) months following the date of
this Agreement. Any monies that will not be expended in the twelve (12) month period will
automatically revert to funds that are administered by Weed & Seed.

                4.     Restrictions on Source of Police Department Manpower. When
possible, officers regularly assigned to the Service Areas with Weed & Seed sites shall be used
for the overtime due to their familiarity with the area. Officers from other units such as Vice and

enforcement activities as deemed necessary by the Police Departments.

                                      May 10, 2007



Hearing; Case 2007-14: Staff initiated request to amend Section 401, (Special Land
Uses Permitted), Article IV, ( R-1, One Family Residential Districts) of the zoning
ordinance to add bed and breakfast facilities as a special land use (in the Clay-
Western and National Register historic districts) in an R-1 district, with conditions.

BACKGROUND

Similar to the previous case, the H, Heritage District, allows for bed and breakfast facilities
with a special land use permit. There are some already existing in thls area, and it seems to be a
good use to be located near our downtown. Short of allowing them in all R-1 zoning districts,
which could trigger a barrage ofrequests to Planning Commission, staff would recommend that
they be allowed only in the Clay-Western and National Register historic districts. The same
conditions presently imposed in the H district are recommended, except condition "a." was
added.

NEW LANGUAGE

Deletions are erossed out and additions are in bold:


7.       Bed & Breakfast facilities, under the following conditions:

         a.      The home must be located in the Clay-Western or National Register
                 Historic District, as identified by the City of Muskegon Historic District
                 Commission map.

         b.      The owner or operator of the tourist home shall live full-time on the
                 premises.

         c.      No structural additions or enlargements shall be made to accommodate
                 the tourist home use and no exterior alterations to the structure shall be
                 made which will change the residential appearance of the structure.

         d.      Breakfast may be served on the premises, only for guests of the facility,
                 and no other meals shall be provided to guests.

         e.      No long-term rental of rooms for more than fourteen (14) consecutive

                days shall be permitted. No guest may stay for more than twenty-eight
                (28) nights in any given year.

        f.      There shall be a maximum of five (5) guestrooms. No more than two (2)
                adults are permitted to stay in any guestroom.

One Family Residential Districts, of the City of Muskegon Zoning Ordinance to allow bed and
breakfast facilities under certain conditions, be recommended to the City Commission for
(approval/denial).

                                        May 10, 2007



Hearing; Case 2007-15: Staff initiated request to amend Section 1200, (Principal Uses
Permitted #1), of Article XII, (B-3. Central Business District), of the zoning ordinance
to clarify allowed retail sales.

BACKGROUND

A question was raised to staff as to whether the sale of"merchandise" included "commodities".
Since other sections of the ordinance (B-1, ad B-2), call out "commodities", staff felt it might be
prudent to clarify the B-3 language so the intent of this section of the ordinance is clear, and
make the language more consistent with other Business zonings. The intent of the B-3 district is
"to create a shopping, living, cultural, governmental, office, heritage and institutional focal point
for the City of Muskegon and Muskegon area".

NEW LANGUAGE

Deletions are erossed out and additions are in bold:


  1.      Retail sales of new merchandise and commodities, provided that all sales are made
          from a completely enclosed building except that this section shall not prohibit the sales
          of antique collector items, this section shall prohibit the operation of a store whose
          primary sales are previously used products, except as fiuther regulated.

DELIBERATION

I move that the amendment to Section 1200 (Principal Uses Permitted, #1), of Article XII, B-3,
Central Business District, of the City of Muskegon Zoning Ordinance, be recommended to the
City Commission for (approval/denial).

                                    May 10, 2007



Hearing; Case 2007-13: Staff initiated request to amend Section 1202, (Special
Land Uses Permitted), Article XII, (B-3 Central Business District), of the zoning
ordinance to allow additional special uses.

BACKGROUND

If the properties in the H, Heritage District are rezoned, as recommended in the previous case,
some uses previously allowed in the H district would no longer be allowed in the downtown
area, even under a special land use pennit. In addition, Galleries and museums are presently
only allowed in OSR, Open Space Recreation, and therefore, the Muskegon Museum would
continue to be nonconfonning. Staff believes our downtown is an appropriate place for
galleries and museums, and so proposes adding them as special uses.

Also included in this request are private clubs, lodge halls, social and similar organizations,
including assembly or rental halls, as well as antique shops. By allowing these uses through
special land use permit, certain properties, such as the Eagles, remain conforming, but requires
a special permit for any additional such uses in the future.


NEW LANGUAGE

Deletions are eressed out and additions are in bold.

8.      Private clubs, lodge halls, social and similar organizations, including assembly or
        rental halls.

9.      Galleries and museums.

10.     Antique shops.


DELIBERATION

I move that the amendment to Section 1201, (Special Land Uses Pennitted), of Article XII, B-
3, Central business District, of the City of Muskegon Zoning Ordinance to allow additional
special land uses in the district, be recommended to the City Commission for
(approval/denial).

                                  CITY OF MUSKEGON

                          CONTRACT FOR TAX ABATEMENT
                              Act 198 Public Acts of 1974


       AGREEMENT between CITY OF MUSKEGON, a municipal corporation of933
Terrace Street, Muskegon, Michigan 49441, ("City") and RESOURCE INDUSTRIES,
1485 S. Getty Street, Muskegon, MI 49442 ("Company").

                                          Recitals:

A.      The Company has applied to City for the establishment of an industrial
development district or industrial rehabilitation district pursuant to the provisions of Act
198 of the Public Acts of 1974, as amended, which act requires a contract between the
City and the Company to be agreed and submitted with the Company's subsequent
anticipated application for an industrial facilities exemption certificate.

B.        That in addition to the statutory requirement, the City has determined that it is in
the best interests of the taxpayers, property owners and residents of the City that this
Agreement be approved and executed prior to the establishment of the requested district,
and the City deems this Contract, together with the conditions set forth in the said Act to
constitute a necessary element in the City's determination whether or not to create the
district.

C.      The Company intends to install the project set forth in its application ("project")
which it believes qualifies for the process of establishing the district and the application
for industrial facilities exemption certificate.

D.      The City, provided this Agreement is executed, will determine whether to create
the district based upon the potential for the production of permanent jobs, the
continuation, stabilization or increase of economic activity, planning and zoning
considerations and the City's general plan and intentions regarding economic
development. In addition to the City policy considerations and predictions that the
Company's proposed district and certificate benefit the community in those ways, the
City has further determined that the contractual commitments made by the Company to
thereby assist the community shall be binding on the Company and necessary to continue
the tax exemption made possible by the certificate.

E.    This contract shall become effective upon the issuance of an Industrial Facilities
Tax Exemption Certificate.

       NOW THEREFORE THE PARTIES AGREE:

I.     COMPANY AGREEMENT. The Company irrevocably commits to the
investment, job retention and job creation promises made in its application, a copy of
which is attached hereto and incorporated herein. In particular the Company agrees:


                                                                                        Page 1
I.I That 100% of the jobs shall be filled and in existence with full-time
    employees by a date no later than two (2) years from the date of the granting
    of the certificate by the State Tax Commission, subject to the provisions of
    section 3.4 of this agreement.

1.2 That the amount of jobs listed on the application, whether new or retained,
    will be maintained through the life of the abatement, subject to the
    provisions of section 3.4 of this agreement.

1.3 The Company shall meet the affirmative action goal included in the
    application or in any documents supplied by the City and utilized by the

    employment diversity during the period of the certificate, subject to the
    provisions of section 3 .4 of this agreement.

1.4 The Company, by the end of two (2) years from the date of the grant of the

1.6 The Company shall pay its specific taxes required by the act in a timely
    manner, and shall not delay payments so as to incur any penalties or interest.

I. 7 The Company shall fully cooperate with the City representatives in
     supplying all requested and required documentation regarding jobs,
     investment, the meeting of all goals and the timely installation and utilization
     of equipment and improvements. The City shall be entitled to inspect at
     reasonable hours the Company's premises where the said improvements and
     equipment have been installed and where the said jobs are performed.

1.8 The Company shall maintain, during the entire period for which the tax
    abatement is granted, the level of jobs, affirmative action goals, production
    and utilization of the improvements and equipment at the site where the
    district has been created and for which the tax exemption has been granted.

1.9 The Company shall not cause or fail to cure the release of any hazardous
    substance, or the violation of any environmental law on its premises in the
    City. It shall report any releases to the appropriate governmental authority in
    a timely and complete manner, and provide copies of said report

exemption cettificate. The City may consider this contract in a meeting separate from
and prior to the meeting in which the City considers the creation of the district and/or
approval of the application for certificate. Further, the City shall require the submission
of this contract signed by the Company together with its applications, before creating the
district.

3.     EVENTS OF DEFAULT. The following actions or failures to comply shall be
considered events of default by the Company:

       3.1 Failure to meet any of the commitments set forth above.

       3.2 The closing of the Company's facilities in the City. Closing shall mean for
       purpose of this Agreement, the removal, without transfer to another site within the
       City of substantially all of the production facilities, and the elimination of
       substantially all the jobs created or retained thereby, which are set forth in the
       Company's application.

       3.3 Failure to afford to the City the documentation and reporting required.

       3.4 The failure to create or retain jobs, meet affirmative action goals or expend
       the funds on equipment and improvements as represented in the application
       within the times required hereby, unless the company can show that there has
       been a loss ofrevenue and employment due to circumstances beyond the control
       of the company. In order to make that showing the company shall have the
       burden of supplying, to the City's satisfaction, complete and convincing
       documentation supporting and justifying reductions in investment, failures to
       attain affirmative action goals or job losses, such as, without limitation, written
       evidence of lost contracts, accounting information showing reduced revenues due
       to the loss of business, (not due to diversion of production to affiliate companies
       or divisions of the company), production records showing reduced quantities over
       significant periods of time, and such other information required by the City to
       support the Company's claim that the failure to invest, failure to achieve
       affirmative action goals, or loss of jobs should not form the basis for a finding of
       default.
                                                                                      Page 3
       3.5 The bankruptcy or insolvency of the Company.

       3.6 The failure to pay any and all taxes and assessments levied on the
       Company's property or any other taxes, local, state or federal, including but not
       limited to City income taxes and the withholding of said City income taxes from
       employees as required by the City Income Tax Ordinance.

       3. 7 The performance or omission of any act which would lead to revocation
       under MCLA 207.565, being §15 of the Act.

       3.8 The violation of any provisions, promises, commitments, considerations or
       covenants of this Agreement.

4. REMEDIES ON DEFAULT. In the event of any of the above defaults the City
shall have the following remedies which it may invoke without notice, except as may be
reasonably required by the Company's rights to due process:

       4.1 In the event of closing as determined after investigation of the facts and a
       public hearing, the Company shall be immediately liable for penalties to be paid
       forthwith to the city as determined as follows:

              4.1.1 The Company shall pay to the City for prorata distribution to the
              taxing units experiencing the abatement, an amount equal to the difference
              between the industrial facilities tax which it has paid, and the total
              property taxes to the relevant taxing units which it would have paid, given
              its installations of improvements and equipment, during the years for
              which the certificate was in effect.

              4.1.2 Immediate Revocation. The Company hereby consents to
              revocation to the IFT certificate before the State Tax Commission, without
              hearing, and the City shall submit a copy of this Agreement to the State
              Tax Commission in connection with its revocation procedure, giving
              notice that the default has occurred and immediate revocation should
              occur.

       4.2 In the event the improvements and equipment have not been installed before
       the two (2) year period, in addition to the revocation procedures before the State
       Tax Commission, the abatement should immediately be reduced by the City
       proportionately, and any installations which have not been finished at the end of
       said two (2) year period shall not be eligible for the abatement thereafter and shall
       be placed on the regular tax roll.

       4.3 Failure to Expend the Funds Represented. In the event, (whether or not the
       installations have been completed), the Company has not expended the funds it
       has represented on its application that it would invest for the installation of
       equipment, the abatement shall be reduced prorata, and any remaining value of
                                                                                     Page 4
     equipment shall be placed on the regular tax roll, unless the company can show,
     through receipts, etc. that the cost of the equipment was actually less than the
     amount estimated by the company (i.e., the same equipment was purchased as
     listed in the !FT application, but the bids came in less then expected).

     4.4 Job Creation and Retention. In the event the promised number of jobs have
     not been created or retained at the end of the two (2) years after the grant of the
     certificate by the State Tax Commission, the abatement shall be proportionately
     reduced, unless the company can show that the loss of jobs, or inability to hire as
     many people as expected, is due to circumstances beyond the control of the
     company (such as an economic downturn).


     4.5 Affirmative Action Goals. In the event, after one (1) year from the grant of
     the certificate by the State Tax Commission, the affirmative action goals of the
     City for additional jobs have not been met on a prorata basis, the abatement shall
     be revoked.


     4.6 For other violations of this Agreement or for actions or omissions by the
     Company amounting to grounds for revocation by statue, the City shall
     recommend to the State Tax Commission immediate revocation of the certificate.


     4.7 Special Assessment. For any amount due to be paid to the City, under this
     Section 4, the Company consents that the City shall have a personal action against
     the Company for the said amount, and in addition, cumulatively, and not by
     election, the City shall have a special assessment lien on all the property of the
     Company personal and real, located in the City, for the collection of the amounts
     due as and in the manner of property taxes and in such case the collection of the
     said special assessment shall be accomplished by addition by the City to the
     Company's property tax statement regularly rendered.


5. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance
with the laws of the State of Michigan applicable to contracts made and to be
performed within the State of Michigan.


6. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts.
Notwithstanding such execution all such counterparts shall constitute one and the same
Agreement.

7. Benefit. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the
respective parties, their successors and personal representatives.




                                                                                  Page 5
8. Effective Date. This Agreement shall be effective on the date the State of
Michigan Tax Commission grants the company at Industrial Facilities Exemption
Certificate.

contractor, related to the owner, did ask for an extension which was granted but
no final building inspections have been scheduled. The case was scheduled
before City Commission 10/24/06 but was removed from agenda because
owner scheduled final inspection but cancelled appointment and there has been
no owner contact since that time.

Jill Foreman from the Conventions and Visitors Bureau (CVB) contacted me yesterday to let me know that
Muskegon has been selected for a visit by travel writers on June 9th . Attached is information from Jill about this
visit and you will see that this is a very good event for our community. Jill would like the ability to use the beach
somewhere in Pere Marquette Park (probably between Captain Jack's and the Coast Guard station) for a small
beach party. I think we would be able to accommodate this activity quite easily. However, they would also like to
serve alcohol (beer and wine), which is prohibited in City parks unless approved by the City Commission.
Because there isn't another City Commission meeting before this event, I would like to add it to the agenda for the
meeting this Tuesday. Thank you for your consideration and please contact me if you have any questions.
