After years of public input, planning and fundraising, one of the centerpieces of the Historic Barns Park redevelopment in Traverse City welcomed its first event on February 1. The 2015 Women's Winter Tour culminated inside the majestic Cathedral Barn, where hundreds of skiers and snowshoers warmed up with food, beverages and dancing. Following an intensive public visioning process, the joint City of Traverse City and Charter Township of Garfield Recreational Authority raised $800,000 to restore the 1930s-era barn as a public event space, with the goal of generating rental revenue to sustain and maintain the building for future generations. LIAA provides executive management services for the Authority.
