Maryville officials unveil plans for former power plant site

(MARYSVILLE) — Proposed redevelopment plans have been unveiled for the former site of a coal-fired power plant in Marysville. Mayor Dan Damman announced the plans Monday during his state of the city address. Officials want to demolish the DTE plant and transform the nearly 30-acre space into a multi-use destination along the waterfront, complete with a five-story hotel, a condominium building, a general retail building, and a two-story building with restaurants and other dining options. The proposal also calls for a riverfront promenade, a park, a marina and public dock, bike paths, and a fitness center. Officials say it’s too early to provide a cost estimate for the redevelopment project, but the city won’t be responsible for cleaning up the site after demolition.
