The Alpena Downtown Development Authority (DDA) received statewide recognition for its Fresh Waves project, winning a 2021 “Best Placemaking Project” award through the Michigan Downtown Association (MDA).

Earlier this fall, Fresh Waves, a project by the Alpena DDA to "create vibrant murals throughout Downtown Alpena", was nominated for the award.

The project competed against other projects throughout the state and was evaluated based on the impact they have had on their downtowns.

The award was presented to the Alpena DDA Executive Director, Anne Gentry, at the MDA’s Annual Conference last week in Detroit, Michigan.

Gentry said, “We look forward to growing the project next year and beyond, bringing more vibrant artwork to our downtown.”
