Holland Civic Center

HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) — The city of Holland has started fundraising for an $11 million plan to overhaul its Civic Center.

The Holland Sentinel reports a $2 million donation from Jim and Eileen Heeringa kicked off the latest effort to renovate the complex. City officials expect to pay some of the total with bonds and some with further donations and grants.

A dozen public meetings on the project have taken place since last year. An October groundbreaking is planned and it’s expected to open in two years.

Designers plan to present the final design proposal to city council next week. It’s expected to include an indoor-outdoor and year-round market as well as a renovated gym, new bleachers, a multi-use space, new restrooms, new offices and other updates.
