The City of Battle Creek has announced a new economic development program, with the release of a promotional video.

The video promotes Battle Creek’s aviation history, and touches on WK Kellogg Airport, Duncan Aviation, the Air National Guard Base, and the Western Michigan University School of Aviation.

This video is a part of a marketing program, which is the result of an agreement in 2014 between the city and the Defense Manufacturing Assistance Program from the University of Michigan Institute for Research on Labor, Employment, and the Economy. The funding for the program comes from a $25,000 grant.
