Overnight Docking Station

Submitted by Paul Jaques, SPC Innovations

My idea is…

“The Grand River [in] downtown Lansing is becoming a great place to kayak, fish and boat but it can sometimes be difficult to bring a boat in and take it out in one day. Sometimes you will want your boat around for the entire week for festivals like Common Ground, 5Ks, etc. What if there was a place along Accident Fund, The City Market and others where you could dock your boat in on the main area…then park it for the night to use for the next day. This would promote people to come back, stay longer and attend downtown retail.”

My idea contributes to a vibrant community by…

“…[bringing] more traffic to the downtown area along with helping local retail and restaurants.”

  1. What a great idea! I know this isn’t quite what you’re talking about, but I think it would also be nice if there were some docks along the river like this one. Right now, there isn’t really an ideal way to get in and out of the river by kayak or canoe, so this could really help. People who are spending time on the river boating might also appreciate an easy launch if they want to take out smaller crafts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5b45CNEFgQ
