TRAVERSE CITY, Michigan — The City Commission in Traverse City has voted against moving forward with a project to build a pier near the mouth of the Boardman River.

City commissioner Richard Lewis offered a motion Monday to give pier supporters until April 4 to raise money to pay for most of the $19,000 cost of applying for environmental permits. But his fellow commissioners voted it down.

A $232,000 grant paid for the design, engineering and environmental work for the curved-steel pier that would extend nearly 550 feet into Grand Traverse Bay. Lewis said he doesn't like to see money spent on a study just to have it sit on a shelf.

Traverse City Record-Eagle (http://bit.ly/1KndsZa ) reports the city's bay front master plan called for the pier, but it failed to capture the public's interest or support from commissioners.
