 Notice to Eagle Harbor Township residents and taxpayers


Fall is in the air...........


It's quiet around here, and kind of nice.  The kids are back to school, some of them from the southern climes have been back since the second week of August!  The local kids returned the day after Labor Day, with football games, band, cross-country running, and other events to keep them busy going into this yearly ritual and adjustment period of missing their friends and getting up at 6AM.  The Township activities have been plentiful leading up to the Labor Day weekend.  We saw the Pigroast, the Art Show, Music at the General Store Museum, and others along with the Copper Harbor Bells Mountain Bike Festival last weekend that had great weather and good crowds.  There is always something to do, if you look hard enough!


The Township business has been on the steady side.  Seasonal water turn offs have started, along with some required water tests for the municipal system.  Summer taxes are due by the 16th of this month.  We had a public hearing on proposed zoning ordinance amendments, that will come before the Township board on Monday night for approval.  Our Zoning Administrator has been busy processing permits for additions, new residences, among other duties.  The Grounds Maintenance has been busy as well, the mowing has slowed down, but Steve has painted the sign posts in the village and keeping things at the beach looking good.  The roads have had some work done as well, Gratiot Lake Drive should be fully repaved this month.  US 41 was chip-sealed earlier in the summer, and M-26 is slated to be repaved for 2020 from Phoenix all the way to Copper Harbor.  At the Solid Waste facility, there has been a flurry of activity with residents dropping off brush and materials in the newly created areas for large logs, brush, wood-chips/leaves and clean fill.  Junk Jettison Day went well in July with a great turn out....we are still hauling tons away every year, and keep thinking at some point it will end?!  Finally there is the draft plan for Brockway Mountain, on the next column....We should be finalizing that for approval in October, to be included in the next 5-year Parks and Recreation Plan.  Well, that is a pretty good recap, with items probably missed!


From everyone here at the Township Office, please stop in when you're around....the coffee is always on.

Draft Master Plan for Brockway Mountain



Please review the plan below and send any comments to supervisor@eagleharbortwp.org   


The Eagle Harbor Township Park Committee has been working on a Master Plan for the Summit of Brockway Mountain for over a year!  The Property, in the Wescoat family since the 1930's, was purchased using a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund grant back in 2013.  Since that time we have left the property as we found it, minus the gift shop, and old communications tower that needed to be removed.  Utilizing committee input and various stakeholder input the plan was formulated and drafted.  Currently we are taking comments on the draft plan and held a public hearing at the April regular Township board meeting.  Thank you for taking the time to review and please let us know what you think!  The Park Committee will present the newest draft of the Plan at the July 8th regular board meeting.
