^It's a good move on the City's part, and has proven successful in other locales. It activates otherwise empty downtown streetfronts and, as you noted, serves as a kind of business incubator.

I get the feeling Muskegon and Ithaca are somehow related. There's a similar mini retail location in Ithaca:

Been quite successful.

Very cool! Definitely a more permanent incubator than Muskegon's chalets maybe we'll see something like that in the future too.
