New social district could include boardwalk

You may soon be able to consume alcoholic beverages outdoors while strolling along the boardwalk beneath the Blue Water Bridges. Port Huron City Council tonight could approve the new “Edison Social District” which would allow such consumption in an area along the St. Clair River boardwalk between the Huron Lightship and International Flag Plaza. Drinks could be sold in specially marked containers from both Freighter’s and the Double Tree and then consumed within the social district footprint. It would be the second such district in Port Huron allowed under a law passed in the state legislature in 2020. Currently, several downtown restaurants allow to-go cocktails for consumption along Military Street and Huron Avenues.

Also tonight, a bid of $46,000 for maintenance to the Court Street Pool from Advanced Pool Services will be considered. Resolutions setting public hearings for the city and DDA proposed budgets are also on the agenda for tonight’s meeting which begins at 7pm at the Port Huron Municipal Office Center.
