State Rep. Bob Bezotte today applauded the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) for its work with the Michigan Strategic Fund in approving a major project slated for downtown Fowlerville.
“This will be the first new development in downtown Fowlerville in several years,” said Bezotte, of Marion Township. “I am eager to see the finished product.”
The Ville Project will include the construction of a new two-story building in downtown Fowlerville. When completed, the mixed-use building will contain eight residential apartments and commercial space on the first floor. The project is expected to generate a total capital investment of $3.7 million, supported by a $1.45 million Michigan Community Revitalization Program performance-based loan. The village of Fowlerville is supporting the project through a 10-year Commercial Rehabilitation Act exemption valued at $451,196.
“This project will bring much-needed housing opportunities and vitality to downtown Fowlerville,” Bezotte said. “I hope this serves as a catalyst for future revitalization projects in the community.”

On July 31, the governor signed into law House Bill 4437, the general state budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1. The bill – together with the education budget, which I detailed last week – spends $81.7 billion of taxpayer money with an emphasis on pork and new, unsustainable programs. The new budget […]
The governor recently signed partisan legislation into law that was supposed to lay out guidelines for carrying out early in-person voting as approved by Michigan voters through Proposal 2 of 2022. Unfortunately, the bills make several changes beyond what voters approved in November – changes that disregard necessary safeguards that protect against election fraud. Some […]
