The Bay City Housing Commission is planning multi-unit developments along Columbus Ave.

56 units are proposed for the former YMCA property at Columbus and Madison once the existing structure is demolished. Another 21-31 loft style apartments are planned for a former warehouse at Columbus and Jackson.

City Commissioners voted to back the projects Monday, September 16. The City Manager will be asked to write support letters when the Housing Commission applies to the state for financial aid. That application deadline is April 1. The combined investment for both initiatives is  $18 million.
