DTE Substation Removal

Those passing by the area of Grand St. and Broad St. may have noticed that DTE has been working on removing the downtown substation. This is the culmination of a partnership between DTE and the City to remove the substation from the downtown area. Once the demolition is complete, the land will be given to the City in exchange for two acres of land that the City currently owns on Dan Hoey. DTE will use the land on Dan Hoey for a future substation. The City will combine the former DTE parcel with the land around it, which is owned by the City’s Downtown Development Authority (DDA). The City and DDA are continuing to work with Norfolk Homes on the redevelopment of this important area along Mill Creek Park.
