Water works to steam locomotive Shay Days celebrates legacy of creative man

Historical Society’s Shay Days returns July 20-21 Imagine Harbor Springs before running water. This was the case when Ephraim Shay retired here in 1888. Although he gained notoriety from his patented geared locomotive, Shay would make his impact on Harbor Springs by designing and building a complete water works system bringing running water to local households at the turn of the 20th century. Once again the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society is celebrating the ingenuity of Ephraim Shay on Friday and Saturday, July 20-21. Shay Days events will run between 10 am and 3 pm both days at Shay Park and the Shay Hexagon House as well as the Harbor Springs History Museum, 349 E. Main Street. Admission for Shay Days is FREE for children and Historical Society members, and a suggested $5 donation for adults. Admission is good for both days and most events are drop-in. Live steam trains will be up and running both days under the tent at Shay Park (the green space at Main and Judd streets). The steam up will include a steam-driven Shay Locomotive and other trains. Avid railroaders, like Dave Comer of Harbor Springs, say that live steam is an experience like to no other to be seen, smelled and heard. Stop by and visit with our steamers!

Consultant Chip Smith with Wade Trim/living Lab presents some of the findings of four days of focus groups and interviews about the future of downtown Harbor Springs. (Photo composite by Charles O’Neill)

Some 500 people participate during four days of visioning for downtown Harbor Springs Formal plan, recommendations to be presented to DDA next month Some 60 people came inside on a warm Saturday July afternoon this past weekend for an engaging look at what downtown Harbor Springs might be, could be, should be. There was a healthy inventory of things we as a community love and cherish about our small town, and what we hope to see evolve here: what we want to stay the same and what we want to change. The final session Saturday was a wrap-up of four days of focus groups and one-on-one discussions led by consultants and planners from Wade Trim/living Lab, the group contracted by the Harbor Springs Downtown Development Authority (DDA) to develop an action plan to help guide the future of downtown. From large community sessions to people walking into the group’s temporary downtown office on Bay Street, it was estimated some 500 people were part of the process. “Our expectations were exceeded in terms of attendance and input,” Rob Mossburg, DDA chairman, told the gathering Saturday, July 14. In addition to the sheer number of people, he said he was grateful for the diversity, from year round residents to summer visitors, grandparents to grandchildren, and everyone in between.

The four consultants looked physically drained and tired during Saturday’s community vision celebration, but enthusiastically offered their appreciation for all of the information and thoughts they were given over the course of the four days. “We even had a 13-year old girl come bounding into our offices and tell us ‘My grandmother said I need to come down here and talk to you,’” Chip Smith, one of the Wade Trim consultants, told the audience. “There was a lot of negotiation and people trying to sell their point of view on certain things,” Mossburg said. “But what was truly impressive was how much we agreed upon.” “The turnout was absolutely phenomenal,” Smith said. “The passion and sense of community was amazing. You have been a fantastic community to work with.” Smith emphasized that what was presented Saturday was more of a compilation, a reflection of what they had heard over the past few days, and not a formal plan or recommendation. That will come in mid-August, when the group will return to present its recommendations to the DDA and Harbor Springs Planning Commission. -CONTINUED on page 12.

Placemaking was clearly in action during the Harbor Springs City Council meeting Monday, July 16, as several small opportunities to improve Harbor Springs were presented-- and approved. Luther Kurtz, a resident of Harbor Springs who has been working to host free movie nights in downtown Harbor Springs during the summer months, requested the use of the city’s waterfront park (located next to the marina) for weekly outdoor movie showings. “There were at least a dozen, maybe up to 20 people at the meeting in support of this idea,” said city manager Tom Richards in a phone interview Tuesday morning. “Council had a fairly brief discussion about it before deciding to give it a try.” The first movie is scheduled for July 26, and movies will continue through August 30. Richards noted the films will all be family-friendly. Another family-oriented opportunity was brought to Council, Richards added, describing a proposal to replace the aged and slightly unsafe playground equipment at Kiwanis Park. -CONTINUED on page 18.

Two council seats, mayor up for election in November Harbor Springs is at a crossroad. With almost two years of near-continual discussion about how to create and maintain a vibrant, year-round city, while protecting its historic charm, it seems like interests and passions are stronger than ever in this small town. For residents who have lived within the city limits for two years, that passion can parlay into serving the community by running for a seat on the Harbor Springs City Council, or by running for Mayor of Harbor Springs. Anyone interested in running for an elected position in Harbor Springs must be a registered voter who has lived in the City of Harbor Springs for two years as of the date of the election (November 6, 2012). A petition must be picked up from City Hall and returned to the City Clerk (office located in City Hall), with a minimum of 25 signatures (from city voters), on or before noon on August 7, 2012. Mayor Al Dika has served two terms during his current run, and is able to run for a third term. City Council seats that will be up for reelection include Cecelia Johnson and Alan Hegedus.

Editor’s Corner


Kate Bassett

he first time I called Harbor Springs home, I was in my early 20s, standing knee-deep in the water just off the tip of the point. I looked toward our city: blocks of buildings, soft outlines of trees, blue lake leading up to town’s shore. And I whispered one word again and again, hoping it would sink into my skin, bones, being. Hoping to make it true.

Letters to the Editor Encourages students to apply for Service Award... To the Editor: Kudos to Grace Carbeck, who was featured in your July 11th issue, for earning the Michigan Student Services Award. Grace should be very proud of her accomplishments. We wanted to encourage other high school students to apply for the Michigan Student Service Award (MSSA) in the coming years. Locally, Char-Em United Way coordinates the MSSA. We partner with the Volunteer Center of Michigan to award MSSAs as a way to recognize exemplary high school students such as Grace. We would also like to acknowledge the Bank of Northern Michigan, which provided funding for the awards. The MSSA is one of the projects of United Way’s Volunteer Connections program, the virtual volunteer center for Emmet and Charlevoix counties. We started Volunteer Connections in 2009 to promote volunteerism, to connect people interested in volunteering with volunteer opportunities that meet their skills and passion, and to provide non-profit agencies with needed volunteers. Agencies post their volunteer needs on our searchable database, and members of the community can sign up to volunteer for them. This is a free service provided by Char-Em United Way to the agencies and the public. Volunteer Connections is an excellent resource for high school students wishing to complete the requirements for the MSSA or for people of any age to find volunteer opportunities in the area. We are very proud of Grace for her commitment and hard work, and we hope that other students also volunteer as much as she did to earn this prestigious award. Information on the requirements for the MSSA, as well as access to the volunteer opportunities database can be found at Casey Adams AmeriCorps VISTA Char-Em United Way

Here’s to Community! To the Editor: As I stood in Jean Jardine Park at the finish line for the Little Traverse Triathlon this past Sunday, hearing all the cheers and laughter, I was once again struck by how lucky I feel to live in this community. That we can gather in such a stunningly beautiful place to have people of all ages - from 3 to 61 years - come out to celebrate its waters, bike ways and running routes is so special. Here’s to the staff of Bay Tennis and Fitness for hosting this event and making it so family-friendly. (For a third year, a family from down state came up to compete in the race - 9 family members - and spend their week long vacation here.) Many thanks to the Harbor Springs police officers and all the volunteers who worked so hard to make it a safe, fun race. All the spectators who came out with cowbells and shouts of encouragement for the athletes made it an even better day! Molly Ames Baker The Outfitter of Harbor Springs

Home. Like many folks, moving “up north” was an intentional act for me. I wanted to raise a family in a place where community still means something real. A place where I’d grow as a person, mother, friend, because the pace is slow enough to develop deep, true relationships with people. A place with roots. A place that cradles its natural resources with gentle hands, holding up those gifts with humility and fierce protection. So I started my life here filled with gratitude. It was almost a religious fervor, really, the way I preached our town’s assets: the people! The places! The farms! The lake! I couldn’t imagine anyone ever wanting to live anywhere else. Until I started dreaming of bigger cities, mountains, new lakes. Until my “wish list” for what our community could have was far longer than my list appreciating what already exists. Of course, one swim in Lake Michigan, one great backyard meal with dear friends, one drive along the bluff with my children in the backseat, and I went right back to sighing, “how lucky we are, to live where we do.” It’s somewhere in between these extremes, however, that my family has found balance. The passion for our place, and the understanding that maybe it needs some help. Maybe a little more year-round stability. A little more opportunities for people to make a living, have fun downtown, and celebrate more the ideas and individuals that make it so unique. And when the Harbor Light Newspaper started a conversation with readers almost two years ago, we quickly discovered we were not alone in these thoughts. Input and encouragement

poured into our mailboxes and in-boxes. People called with suggestions, stories, hopes, fears. We watched a new wave of energy ride into town, and with it, a revitalized Downtown Development Authority to serve as leaders in change for the Central Business District. Which is why, when the DDA’s chosen planning firm, Wade Trim/living Lab arrived in town last week to gather information and provide a preliminary report on what the still developing Downtown Enhancement Plan might entail, it came as no surprise to us that nearly 500 people turned up to talk about Harbor Springs. The conversations that took place over those four days proved how strong this city’s heart still beats. It also proved how ready many people are to step up and do what it takes to see that vitality last long into the future. As I type, I am thinking about how in just a few hours I will be back in the lake. Back in the same spot I stood 12 years ago, when I was whispering the word “home” into the freshwater air, willing there to be a way for me to stay in this area forever. And I know I’ll feel a rush of gratitude all over again-- because I know now I’ve become part of this web, part of a place that continues, time and again, to redefine and strengthen the word “community.” We encourage you to keep watching for updates on the DDA’s Downtown Enhancement Plan, as well as other organizations, like HARBOR Inc., as we all help build a better future, together.

Farmers Market Report


The weather continues to smile down on us! Last week, the small downpour came at the very end of market and nearly everyone was already packed up and ready to go, so it was nice just to have a break in the heat. Gorgeous, colorful and delicious produce is coming in full force right now and we saw our first tomatoes this week. Yellow and red and full of flavor, it reminds us that winter tomatoes are poor substitutes for the real thing! Beets and radishes add to the mix for the makings of a superb salad. Flowers are everywhere in the market and they are flying off the tables to new homes all around Harbor; from the smallest place setting arrangements to boisterous sunflowers, you can pick up a day-brightener from our vendors! Our second carrot winner, Nancy Dykstra, was lucky her friends were watching Facebook. They spotted the picture of her carrot and called her to remind her to come down and claim her prize. She did....and went home with a bag of the best the market offers, including the market bag! Keep watching, a new carrot will be posted every week. If you haven’t made your carrot purchase in support of the market, it’s not too late! And we would like to do a couple of shout-outs to neighborhoods who are showing their support en masse.... Evergreen Ridge, Third Street and East Main Street all have multiple supporters on display! We want to thank all of Harbor Springs for helping make the market the special place that it is. This week--July 18 and 21-- the market will be hosting the Harbor Springs Garden Club on Wednesday (July 18). Club members will be on hand to answer your questions, talk about the work of the club ( you didn’t think those fantastic gardens planted and watered themselves, did you?!) and encourage you to become a part of the beauty of Harbor. On Saturday, July 21, we will be your healthy alternative on National Junk Food Day. Bring the kids down to taste the real difference. And again, as a reminder, if you are a musician or part of a musical group that would like to play at market, give us a call at (231) 330-5575. We are always looking for new and talented additions to the morning! See you at the market, Cyndi Kramer Market Master

American Life in Poetry BY TED KOOSER, U.S. POET LAUREATE

Jane Hirshfield, who lives in the San Francisco Bay area, is one of our country’s finest poets, and I have never seen a poem of hers that I didn’t admire. Here’s a fine one that I see as being about our inability to control the world beyond us.

The Promise Stay, I said to the cut flowers. They bowed their heads lower. Stay, I said to the spider, who fled. Stay, leaf. It reddened, embarrassed for me and itself. Stay, I said to my body. It sat as a dog does, obedient for a moment, soon starting to tremble. Stay, to the earth of riverine valley meadows, of fossiled escarpments, of limestone and sandstone. It looked back with a changing expression, in silence. Stay, I said to my loves. Each answered, Always. American Life in Poetry is made possible by The Poetry Foundation (, publisher of Poetry magazine. It is also supported by the Department of English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Poem copyright ©2011 by Jane Hirshfield, from her most recent book of poems, Come, Thief, Alfred A. Knopf, 2011. Poem reprinted by permission of Jane Hirshfield and the publisher. Introduction copyright © 2012 by The Poetry Foundation. The introduction’s author, Ted Kooser, served as United States Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress from 2004-2006.

Odawa language CD offered Kiogima, who authored the book The Complete Odawa Language, and Cindy Kerr, resident of West Traverse Township, collaborated during the winter of 2012 to make an audio CD that makes correct pronunciation of Odawa words more easily accessible to everyone. Kerr provided the technology and technical expertise, producing a CD that has Ray’s clear and concise pronunciation of each word in the Odawa to English dictionary found in his book. This MP3 CD is available for just $2 at both Between the Covers in downtown Harbor Springs and Indian Hills on M-119.

‘Conversations with Ray’, ‘Evenings at Longhouse’, among Blackbird Museum summer programs

Mary Lee Moon will be showcasing her Necklaces at Perry Farm Village in The Fireside Lounge Thursday, July 26th 1-4 pm

By GRAHAM GETTEL Harbor Light Newspaper

Two weekly events are being hosted by the Andrew J. Blackbird Museum this summer. The first event, Evenings at the Longhouse, is scheduled every Tuesday at 7 p.m., while the second event, Conversations with Ray, will be held every Wednesday at the museum from 2 to 3 p.m. The conversations will be led by the museum’s curator and elder with the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians, Ray Kiogima. He will be focusing on language instruction for those interested in learning the language of the Odawa people. Alongside the language aspects of theses “conversations,” Kiogima will tell stories and discuss the history of the Odawa people.

Incomparable, knitted ribbon jackets

The museum can be found at 368 E. Main Street in Harbor Springs. Kiogima has been devoted to staying true to his roots. He was born in 1930, and began learning the Odawa language-- before he learned to speak English-- picking up the language from his parents’ discussions. At age 13, he moved into his grandmother’s home in Harbor Springs and through living with her, a woman who spoke little English and was fluent in Odawa, he was able to hone his language skills. “When we sat at night she told me a lot of things, like history,” Kiogima said. “We spent a lot of time together just talking.” He attended the Holy Childhood boarding school, where he learned English alongside

many other Odawa children, some of whom he still encounters today. Spending the initial portion of his life entirely immersed in a society filled with Odawa people, Kiogima deeply treasures his ancestral history. It is this passion that led him to begin working at the Blackbird Museum three years ago. The museum is named after a local Odawa leader and historian, Andrew J. Blackbird. “What we are trying to do is preserve our language and rituals,” Kiogima stressed. The Odawa people’s connection to this area dates back to the 1600s. In addition to artifacts and knowledge available at the museum, Kiogima partakes in traditional customs with other Odawa tribal members, who come from a local base of nearly 4,500. Customs that are preserved and enacted each year include a pow-wow and feasts such as ghost suppers, dinners held in honor of the Odawa ancestors. Evenings at the Longhouse, a structure located adjacent to City Hall, near the Ottawa Stadium, present a line-up of traditional artists able to share specific aspects of Odawa traditions. Participants are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket, relax, and enjoy an evening of Native American culture.

zons, changing weather, and textures enter his Post Post Modern works without irony or cynicism. “ Indeed, the land/water based paintings celebrate the qualities and views that keep people coming back to Harbor Springs year round” commented Ahrens about his new body of contemporary work titled

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you

Marla Kay Houghteling graces Bunter with poems from ASSISTED LIVING.

By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 Another Blissfest has come and gone and as much as people enjoy it, it always makes me envious of all the other communities in the North who host festivals every summer. Don’t get me wrong, I know that we have the Chili Cook off, the Wine Tasting and the Taste of Harbor Springs and this coming weekend is Shay Days, which is truly a fun time. I so encourage you to participate in the tours and the slideshows and everything else that is offered; it is a great opportunity to learn a little more about the area. But if you go or have gone to the other area festivals, you will know what I mean when I say that they are not of the same nature of anything offered here; Blissfest is as close as we get and it’s not really in Harbor Springs. I’m sure there are those who think that is fine, that some of these festivals are rather déclassé; I am not one of them, I have always enjoyed a good party. I remember as a child going to Cross Village every August for the Homecoming Picnic (a.k.a. The Pow wow.) My parents always took us when we were young, but once I could drive myself, it became a lot more fun. Hang out all day enjoying the sights and sounds, taking a side trip to Sturgeon Bay if it got too hot, eating the great Polish food offered at the Church or at Legs Inn if it was later in the

day. For many years, the Parish at Lark’s Lake also held a festival, usually a week after Cross Village, but more of the same; music, bingo, food, fun. Now just about every community has their own version of a summer festival. The mac daddy, of course, is the Cherry Festival in Traverse City; it lasts longer, boasts more famous, though not necessarily better entertainment and offers almost constant events for the full week. Charlevoix has their Venetian Festival, Boyne Falls has the

Polish Festival and Gaylord has Alpenfest, which begins this week. They last for a varying number of days and offer differing events from mud runs in Boyne Falls to the Alpenstrasse in Gaylord. Some have scholarship pageants and elect queens or princesses. Some charge for admission, but many, like the Venetian Festival, are offered at no cost. The common denominator is that they are all fun filled days and are highly anticipated by local residents and visitors alike.

Last weekend Boyne City hosted Boyne Thunder, based around races on Lake Charlevoix but encompassing the entire town in the celebration, not just the boaters. Pellston now has Summerfest; they used to offer Pioneer Days with people in period costumes and softball tournaments and that was always great fun. Alanson has Riverfest, Indian River has their Summerfest and St. Ignace has the Fish Festival. Posen has their Potato Festival; I always though the title of Potato Queen would be the one to have. They wait until September, but that is a party well worth the wait. Kalkaska has the Trout Festival, Ellsworth has Ellebration, Mackinaw City has the Iron Workers Festival and Cheboygan has the Waterways Festival. Petoskey has a few, including the Festival on the Bay and the Historic Festival. There is not a weekend in the summer in Northern Michigan that doesn’t offer at least one celebration; generally you have multiple ones to choose from if you don’t mind a little drive. For those who say there is nothing to do in small towns, I say you just don’t know where to look. I also want to mention a few upcoming fundraisers in the area. A few weeks ago there was a very bad accident north of town involving several young men that left one of them, Justin Archey, in very bad shape. This Friday, July 20th, there is a pig roast at the Village Hall in Alanson from 6 to 9 to raise money to help cover Justin’s medical costs. There will also be benefits for Meghan McKinney (I apologize for not knowing a married name) on August 18th and one for Becky Meyer at some time in the not too distant future; both ladies need help raising money to cover some serious medical

issues. I’m so happy to live in a generous community who helps when they can and are so good about rallying around their own. Condolences to the families of Andy Parker and Estella Ramey. Mr. Parker was a shining light at Bay Bluffs, always with a smile, and Estella Ramey was a true daughter of the area, growing up at Five Mile Creek and working at Bluff Gardens; she had familial ties with many and neighborly relationships with many more. Both will be missed. I missed a couple of anniversaries and one birthday this week. Tuesday, July 17 we should have wished a Happy Birthday to Will Baker and Happy Anniversary to Ben and Molly Veling and to Ed and Patty Ballou. Hope you all had wonderful celebrations. This week, we’ll begin by wishing a Happy Birthday to Emily Clare, Rick Holdorph, Don Calnen and Brent Juilleret on Thursday the 19th. Friday, Happy Birthday to Chuck Bartlett and on Saturday, July 21, Happy Birthday to Mark Carter, Conner Cleven and Charles Ranney (the one turning five). Three lovely ladies will be celebrating on Sunday, July 22 and we wish the best to Tami Hadix, Virginia Renker and Robin Morse. Another trio of beauties defy aging celebrate on July 23 as Karen White Pennington, Monica Swiss Steinmeyer and Nancy Allerding Topham all mark another year. On Tuesday the 24th, Happy Birthday to Charles O’Neill and to everyone’s favorite scientist/ mathematician, Tom McDonald. Finally, last but certainly not least, Happy Birthday on Wednesday to Pamela Rhine and to Molly Morse. Share your news with Cynthia, 231.56.7842

Blissfest 2012 Thousands gathered July 13-15 for the 32nd annual Blissfest Music Festival, near Cross Village north of Harbor Springs. While weather was wild, with temperatures soaring into the 90s and an intense thunderstorm early Sunday morning, festival-goers were all smiles as they took in hundreds of performances, workshops, and family-friendly activities. This year, the festival was headlined by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and 90s hip hop stars, Arrested Development. It also featured lots of local musicians, and favorite songwriters/bands from around the state.

Local residents among top finishers The fourth annual Little Traverse Triathlon enjoyed another successful running (and biking and swimming) on Sunday, July 15. Some 150 participants took part in individual and team competition beginning with a 600 meter swim from Zoll Street beach followed by a 19.6 mile cycling tour out M-119 along the ‘Tunnel of Trees’ and finishing with a four mile run along Beach Drive. The event began shortly after a fairly big thunderstorm rolled through the area Sunday morning and lingering cloud cover provided some break from the heat for most of the event. Staged in Jean Jardine Park adjacent to City Hall, the event also drew quite a crowd of spectators and was pulled off with volunteers and local enforcement assistance. Organizer Tom Behan of Bay Tennis and Fitness said the event was another winner. “The event went very well, on time, no issues, no complaints, just lots of good -CONTINUED Young athletes got into the spirit with a mini-triathlon of their own before the big folks went off.

Community comes together to consider future of downtown -CONTINUED from page 1.

Should the DDA accept the plan it would then go to Harbor Springs City Council for consideration and possible adoption. The DDA could then begin to phase in aspects of the plan. The presentation Saturday included lots of bullet points and slides. Some focused on current strengths and things people already like about downtown: the Christmas tree on Main Street, the Farmers Market, no traffic lights, small town feel, the waterfront, pedestrian/walkable downtown. “We had plenty of people who said ‘I love it the way it is,’” Smith noted. “I just had that conversation this morning with a woman. I said, ‘we all love it the way it is. However, it is going to change in ways we cannot control if we just sit back and do nothing. We should consider helping make the changes that reflect who we are and what we want to see happen.’ “We should be who we are as a community and celebrate it, because it is great.” Smith pointed to negative trends such as falling enrollment at the school and a drop in full-time resident census population figures that reflect a declining year-round community as reasons for considering how to address the future in new ways. Among the things people wanted to see improved or changed were: improved access to the water; more dining options, including outdoor seating; continued non-motorized and pedestrian access and improvements; more living opportunities downtown. Along those lines, the consultants developed a variety of possible improvements, all of which were just initial suggestions and ideas, with more to be flushed out when the actual plan is created, they noted. None of the ideas required “a lot of major physical projects,” they added. They began by addressing streets and connection to the water by suggesting that Spring Street, at the center of town, be converted to a pedestrian walkway between Main and Bay Streets. Currently, they noted, the street is underutilized and confusing -- one way south leading to Bay Street and one way north, leading to Third Street. A pedestrian walkway could provide a natural flow and connection to Bay Street and the waterfront, and might even include physical connections to the water (or ‘spring’) with a water feature or sculpture ‘authentic to Harbor Springs.’ A waterfront park was also part of the suggestions, reducing significantly the parking lot feel and removing the tennis courts. A larger Harbormaster/Community building was envisioned centrally located within that waterfront park. Year round use of the space was also encouraged, possibly offering ice-skating in the winter, as an example. Other ideas included Bay Street having significantly wider sidewalks, more shade trees and picnic tables, benches and other simple gathering attractions in the waterfront park space. No fountains or amusement park-type activities like a

Form-based zoning codes “Form-based codes focus land use regulation towards creating more livable communities. The approach uses traditional community character to create and maintain a more humanscale environment. Unlike conventional zoning that focuses on separating land uses, form-based code focuses on building form as it relates to streetscape and adjacent uses. Form-based codes allow for a mixture of land uses based upon the context of building form. As a result, compatibility of uses is achieved through design and orientation, instead of strict land use separation. Where conventional zoning focuses on use and development of an individual lot, form-based codes focus on the role that individual buildings serve in shaping the public streetscape. Form-based codes rely on design concepts and patterns intended to preserve the assets of a community, creating more livable environments and spaces.” -- from a Michigan Municipal League article on a new approach to zoning in its Smart Growth Tactics publication.

merry-go-round were part of the recommendation. Parking was addressed with various suggestions. One idea was to place parking on the Shay Reservoir site, across from Irish Boat Shop off Bay Street. The parking would be on the lower level, off Bay Street. On top could be a grassy area, or the tennis courts could be located there. The view from Main Street would give no clue to the parking hidden below. Such a configuration could allow for building development there should the demand arise in the future. A parking deck, creatively designed to fit in with the site was also recommended as a possibility, located on city-owned property on the north end of Spring Street, alongside where the road converges with the boardwalk. Throughout the proposed plan was the concept of great density, or ‘in-fill’, of buildings. Living spaces above commercial spaces was highly touted as way to provide more affordable residential living in town. It was also recommended that building heights be allowed to go up to three stories near the bluff along Third Street, to further increase the density. Rooftop terraces should also be allowed and encouraged, they suggested. Perhaps the most direct challenge presented was to throw out the existing zoning in the downtown district and to adopt ‘Form-based Zoning.” Essentially, such zoning focuses more on how buildings and new development fits with the neighborhood, and how it encourages desired outcomes. The current standard of zoning is parcel-based, with specific parking requirements based on uses-- restaurant, retail, office, etc. “Form-based codes care less about what goes on inside the building and more about how it looks and fits with the community,” Smith said. (See sidebar excerpt from a Michigan Municipal League series of articles on Form-based codes). Smith said such zoning encourages a wide range of living opportunities in town, making downtown liveable and desirable for all income and age ranges. “It encourages a downtown for everybody,” he said. There were a number of program-specific actions recommended as well, including a business incubator to help foster new business; a more formalized downtown organization with a paid director; developing a database of available commercial space and opportunities; and expanding free wi-fi internet connectivity throughout the downtown and waterfront areas. “We want to have the assets in place that will attract the new information workers and the creative class to live here. And that includes people like craftsman and artisans, people who are switching careers. We want them to have the opportunity to consider Harbor Springs as a place to make their home,” said Dana Widmar, former executive director of HARBOR, Inc and now one of the consultants with Wade Trim/living Lab. At the conclusion of the Saturday presentation there were questions and challenges to the proposals. Mossburg and Smith both noted that this was only the beginning. A formal plan had to be completed and presented for consideration. “Ultimately, while we each have our own specific interests and hopes, what we are trying to focus on is the greater good for our community,” Mossburg said. “I hope we can continue to find common ground.” Funding, and how the DDA works through what will become its state-required Downtown Enhancement Plan, are specifics yet to be formally proposed. Mossburg said he was hopeful that this process would continue on pace, and that a year from now, at least some of the ‘low-hanging fruit’-- the simpler proposals and projects-- could be underway. “Loving it the way it is, and just hoping it will stay that way, is a rotten strategy,” Smith said of Harbor Springs. “From what we have heard, people are ready for something different. Not in the character of the community, or in a drastic change in how it looks. But we are realizing the old way of doing things doesn’t work anymore. Just thinking, ‘Oh, this is Harbor Springs and it’s beautiful and it will be fine and people will always want to come here,’ is no longer realistic. “I think the community is pushing for that (a new way of thinking),” Smith said. The consultants are planning to return to Harbor Springs in mid-August to present their final recommendations to the DDA. -Charles O’Neill

Perspectives: Combining progress and history... By DANIELLE MCINTOSH “Hope is not a strategy for the future.” This was my favorite line during last week’s Community Vision Fair. Having a clear and detailed vision of our future here in Harbor Springs is just the first step to a planning process that will improve upon our unique and breathtaking town. And as much as embracing and wanting change helps to shape a place for the better, a big portion of enhancing that place is also about preservation. But what do we want to preserve? This kind of discussion about downtown led the community visioning workshop that officially kicked off Wade Trim/living Lab’s four-day information gathering blitz, July 11-14. Nearly 50 community members, business owners and local officials sacrificed a sunny July evening to help shape the future of Harbor Springs. The emphasis of the vision workshop was to bring together ideas about what we love about our town-- those things we hope still exist 15, 20, 30 years from now. Wade Trim/living Lab, the planning firm hired by the Harbor Springs Downtown Development Authority, led the group through several exercises, including one that asked participants to list favorite spaces, activities, events. The Wade Trim team noted how impressive it is to see so many folks share the same loves and values in relation to their community. The big questions emphasized what aspects of town we hope remain constant as we embark on any changes in Harbor Springs. The list proved these things to be true: we love the view of the bay, watersports, eating ice cream downtown, the history of the area, the quaintness of Main Street, and so on. Wade Trim representatives said they recently did the same exercise with the City of Detroit, and concluded that their differences in values might be one of the major reasons the city continues to struggle to define a clear vision for itself. Each table of community members went on to design a giant postcard illustrating what we hope Harbor Springs will look like in the year 2030. My group was comprised of five 20-30 year olds who were raised in Harbor Springs, one long time resident, a summer resident, and a transplant (me). Though we were initially taken back by the assignment; we cooperated together as if there were no wrong answers, and managed to put ideas together that combined progress and history. As each group presented, it became more and more obvious, that as a whole, we don’t want Harbor Springs to be like Traverse City, or Petoskey, or anywhere else. We may want to borrow a few ideas for improving our waterfront, increasing downtown business or amping up the night life, but overall, we all came to-- or choose to stay in-- Harbor Springs for the same list of reasons, and we don’t want to lose what is keeping us here. We just want to make it better. Danielle McIntosh is a reporter for the Harbor Light Newspaper. She grew up in southern Michigan and made the conscious decision to move to this area after graduating from college.

Perspectives: Finding a way to bring younger people into town... By MARK FLEMMING While circling downtown Harbor Springs on Thursday evening, July 12, trying to find a parking spot amidst the hustle and bustle of Street Musique, it was hard to believe that we would have to entice people to visit our town. As music filled the air and people crowded the sidewalks, I thought back to 7:30 p.m. in February when only a handful of people, if any, could be seen downtown. After finding a parking spot, I walked around the corner to the temporary office front of planning and design firm Wade Trim/living Lab, to attend a focus group of 20-30 year olds involved in the downtown community. I found a handful of familiar faces to downtown Harbor Springs, explaining what they love about town, what they dislike, and what they believe could be changed to make town more appealing to our demographic. A few things the group already believes to be strong: the small town feel; gorgeous setting; availability of outdoor activities in and around town; holiday festivities, such as fourth of July and the tree lighting; farmers market; and the camaraderie of the people that call this place home. A few of the major drawbacks mentioned were: lack of

employment for our age group; difficulty in meeting other people in our age group; the absence of nightlife in town; very short season for most businesses; and lack of places to stay nearby if visiting downtown. It was mentioned that Harbor Springs seems to be an ‘imaginary place’ that gets set up for two months of the year and is then dismantled for the other 10 months. A large portion of the meeting was spent discussing the area between the Harbormasters office and the Pier Restaurant. Most agreed that although the tennis courts are nice for a few people, the area could be better utilized for larger audiences. Several suggestions were to turn the area into a skating rink in the winter, more open green space for events, a possible spot to set up temporary, small scale, businesses in the summer that would draw more people to the waterfront. A beer garden was also suggested with the possibility of a small bar that could be open air on several sides and fenced off around the perimeter. Following the discussion of waterfront libations, the group discussed the possibility of having a small craft beer bar or microbrewery located downtown that would allow for drinks and a year-round live music venue to bring people into Harbor Springs from surrounding towns.

Group leader Chip Smith suggested that this could be a very easy thing to set up, and compared the plan to that of Arbor Brewing Company in Ann Arbor. Most importantly, the members of the 20-30 year age demographic hoped that we, as a community, could find a way to bring people of our own age group into town, year round, and to become a part of the community. Everyone agreed it is not an easy place to find a date, or start a family, and that could be a major downfall for bringing younger people into the area. The relaxed atmosphere and casual conversation that took place during the meeting, and as everyone mingled afterwards, was generally positive and encouraging. There was a clear hope that Harbor Springs can become a destination for our age demographic, but it will take some effort.

First-ever trip to state finals for little league team First Tee offer summer For the first time in over 40 years of the area’s Little League history, a Harbor Springs baseba l l tea m claimed the District Title. “And this is not just the first time in Little League history, but in all ages and levels for Harbor Springs baseball and softball including the high school level,” said Head Coach Corey Hebner, who has been with the program for the past eight years. Harbor Springs Little

League had 18 kids to choose from this year to form the winning District Tournament Team. “Usually we ask who wants to go to the tournament and the only ten guys who raise their hand, are the ones we take,” Hebner said, noting that this year’s team had plenty of talent to choose from. During the district tournament, held in Harbor Springs last week, the team defeated

Cheboygan 11-1, Sault Saint Marie 7-1, North Emmett 133, Rogers City 8-4 and Petoskey. Of the team’s eleven players, nine saw action on the mound. “As a coach, I just try to teach the kids to work hard and have fun and the scoreboard will take care of itself. These kids have another seven to eight years of baseball growth and we just want to help them enjoy it,” added Hebner.

The team advances to the state tournament in Kalamazoo beginning Thursday, July 19 and running through Wednesday, July 25. The team is currently seeking donations to help fund the trip. Donors may contact Dave Harrell at (231)242-4092 or Cory Hebner at (231)2420360. The team will also be parading through town on their way to Kalamazoo on Thursday, July 19 at 1 p.m.

Harlem Globetrotters’ to host local skills clinics As part of the Harlem Globetrotters’ upcoming summer festival in northern Michigan, the team has partnered with the YMCA of Northern Michigan to host complimentar y summer skills clinics to the youth of the Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and Charlevoix School Districts. Designed to take fans ages six to 12 behind the curtain to see the magic behind the Globetrotters’ electrifying basketball skills and tricks, participants will also learn about the importance of staying active and eating healthy. These clinics are great for kids of any skill level, whether they play competitively, or have never played basketball before.

Each clinic will be conducted by current Globetrotter players, and following are the scheduled dates, times, and locations of the clinics: · Wednesday, Aug. 1; 9:0010:00 a.m.; Harbor Springs High School · Thursday, Aug. 2; 9:0010:00 a.m.; Petoskey High School · Friday, Aug. 3; 10:00-11:00 a.m.; Charlevoix High School · Saturday, Aug. 4; 9:0010:00 a.m.; Petoskey High School As a “thank you” to the Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and Charlevoix School Districts, these fun-filled clinics are offered free of charge, but each participant must be a student in one of those three school districts. Space

is strictly limited to the first 65 kids that register for each clinic. Registration must be completed through the YMCA of Northern Michigan, at 434 East Lake Street in Petoskey: 231-348-8393. Sponsored by Howard Johnson Hotels, Greyhound Lines, Spalding, and Russell Athletic, the Original Harlem Globetrotters are celebrating their 86th consecutive year, continuing a world famous tradition of ball handling wizardry, basketball artistry and one-of-a-kind family entertainment that continues to thrill fans of all ages. Throughout their history, the Globetrotters have showcased their iconic talents in 120 countries and territories on six continents,

often breaking down cultural and societal barriers while providing fans with their first-ever basketball experience. Proud inductees of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the Globetrotters have entertained hundreds of millions of fans—among them popes, kings, queens, and presidents—over more than eight thrilling decades.

Northern Lights focus of Dark Sky program July 25 -CONTINUED from page 3.

Williams on the NBC Nightly News has twice talked about her timelapse photography of the Aurora Borealis. Her photos have also been featured by National Geographic News, the Smithsonian, NASA, Fox News, NPR, CNN, the Weather Channel and many, many more regional, national and international media outlets. Stockman-Malone will talk about how she tracks and photographs this elusive natural phenomenon. She will provide “some general basics on what causes the Northern Lights, techniques and equipment needed to photograph them, and some stories related to the photos and some time-lapse video clips.” Please note: Because there

is no way to predict the Aurora Borealis, this program is not intended to infer that the Northern Lights will be visible on this evening. Instead, the program is intended to offer insight and background, from both scientific and mythological perspectives, about what causes the celestial phenomenon. “We are in a period of increased solar activity, which always increases the opportunity for the Northern Lights to occur,” Adams said. “So it’s an ideal time to talk about this phenomenon and to prepare to view and photograph them when they avail themselves in the night sky. Malone will present a slideshow of some of her most magnificent Northern Lights photography to accompany

the program. To v iew Stock ma nMalone’s photos prior to the event, visit her Web site

At the Movies with Cynthia Morse Zumbaugh

What a wonderful surprise this little movie was, finally a movie for grown-ups. And when I say a movie for grownups, I don’t mean an adult movie; this movie actually relies on characters and plot and incredible acting ability rather than things being blown up or humor best suited for a junior-high boy. God bless the English. This is the story of several senior citizens ready to retire when they realize that their income isn’t enough to pay for retirement in England. Instead they come across an advertisement for The Marigold Hotel in India, it looks wonderful and is affordable, so a group of seven different characters make the move, only to find that you shouldn’t always believe everything you read. The hotel has definitely seen better days. After some time, though, the charm of the place begins to overshadow the negatives. The cast is as good as it gets, ably led by two grand dames, Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, but the talent is there right across the board, especially Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy and Ronald Pickup. Each character (or couple) is coming for their own purpose beyond retirement; one needs an operation, one is searching for a lost love, others looking for new love. Wilkinson’s Graham especially touched a chord in me; I loved the childlike idealism in the man. The owner of the hotel is beautifully portrayed by Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) and once again I am impressed by his talent; he holds his own in this caliber of cast. If you need the special effects and constant excitement, this is not the movie for you. If you can appreciate a good story and performances (and some beautiful scenery) then this is a don’t miss movie. From joy to sadness to bigotry, it covers an incredible range of emotions and does it seamlessly and without being “preachy.” In fact, the genuine laughs abound throughout this movie. Rated PG13, there are a few sexual situations, brief nudity (nothing very offensive in either case) and some profanity, though I can honestly say I don’t remember much at all. Regardless of the rating, this really isn’t a movie for kids, they will be bored. This plot, thankfully, is definitely intended for adults.

City Council...

The “ H “ bag has returned ~

-CONTINUED from page 1.

“Sandy Baker did a lot of work to investigate and create plans, as well as getting private contributions. She did request the city make a contribution from our electric promotion fund-- which is the same fund we use to string Christmas lights, etc. and is not a taxpayer fund-- and Council approved this.” Richards said he expects to see some activity happen with the Kiwanis playground in the next few weeks. Residents of East Bluff (from the Arbor/Judd Street intersection east) came to City Council to present a petition to have their neighborhood’s overhead electrical lines buried underground. “This is consistent with a policy Council adopted in 2007 to allow neighborhoods to explore the opportunity to have their service lines converted to underground,” Richards said. Once a petition is presented to Council, city management puts together what the engineering costs for the project

in oodles of colors !

would be, and if the petitioning residents agree to pay the fees, the engineering is completed and bids will be gathered for the actual conversion. “At this point, residents can stop the process, or agree to pay for the work to be completed. The policy was put together this way so that a particular area that wants underground service can petition to get the benefits of this, but also, so that they pay the cost, instead of spreading it out to all of our electrical customers.” Richards noted the Council also agreed to get bids for two possible fall street projects. Third Street, between State and Spring Street, needs water/sewer line work and repaving. Arbor Street, north of Lake Street up to Kiwanis Park, needs repaving. Richards said because the Bay Street projects have been postponed until spring 2013, these two road projects would help keep the city on schedule.
