Marine City First Impressions:
Tourism Assessment Community Report Forum
Jan. 31, 2019

FIT helps communities learn about their strengths and weaknesses through the eyes of first time visitors. In early 2018, Marine City was successful in applying for FIT. As a result, five visitors unfamiliar with the area visited Marine City unannounced. The results of their visit will be shared during this evening forum. Community leaders and residents will be present to hear results, listen to suggestions, and guide next steps.

Business owners, elected officials, organizations, educators and all residents of Marine City, St. Clair County, Michigan. This event is open to anyone interested in the future of Marine City and the surrounding BlueWater Region.


  • Jan. 31, 2019 (In the case of bad weather, February 4th has been reserved as alternate make-up day).
  • 5:30 - 8 p.m. (program begins promptly at 6 p.m)
  • Location: Washington Life Center, 403 N. Mary St. Marine City, MI 48039
