First Aired July 8, 2023
Marshall Mayor Jim Schwartz returns to Community Matters to discuss the planned Ford BlueOval Battery Park Michigan eyed for the Megasite property, saying a “majority is very, very strong in support of this taking place.”
Amid some resistance – including a lawsuit filed by the “Committee for Marshall – Not the Megasite” to stop the appropriate zoning of the property – Schwartz remains supportive and optimistic for the development.
