I attended the groundbreaking for the new shell building in the Plymouth Industrial Park today. I got to wear multiple hats at this. Both PIDCO and MCEDC are partners in this venture and I sit on both boards. Easterday Construction Co., Inc. is doing the electrical installation for the building. There were a lot of nice words said about the project, but it’s hard to convey how much coordination went into getting all of the groups together on this. Not only PIDCO and MCEDC as listed above, but also the City of Plymouth and the Plymouth Redevelopment Commission had to come to terms on the project. It was a major effort over two years to make this happen. The building is scheduled to be complete early this Fall.
I’m hopeful that this will lead to similar projects throughout Marshall county. I have spoken to Culver about this. Argos could easily pursue this on the new Shovel Ready site they’re developing. The other Marshall County communities should be considering it as well.

I ran across the Balanced Shelf and I thought this was an interesting piece of functional art. From the creator, Chis Cushingham, “A wall mounted bookshelf that helps you visualize your stack of read books vs. unread books; motivation to get some reading done.“
I like the use of common materials used to create this “sculpture” and its options to change its look and position over time. Despite the current trend toward e-books, I still like to hold a book and on more than one occasion have lucked out on a good book by judging its cover.
