Notice to Eagle Harbor Township residents and taxpayers


October is shaping up to be the snowiest October since 1979....  That's right, we are going to break the snowfall record this year, you can just feel it! Or it's my optimistic side.  I love the snow even though its a bit early and there are things in my yard that need to be put away for the winter, I enjoy the snowfall and prospects of a record year.  Halloween is right around the corner.  Look for a large trailer with hay bales and masked up kids to be moving around the Harbor Saturday after 4pm.  We will not go into anyone's house, we ask that if you wish them to stop at your house, call Kelly Probst, conversely if you do not want them to stop, call her as well.  We don't want to make anyone uncomfortable, but are trying to give a little normal to the kids!


Park Committee/Planning Commission Survey


Both the Park Committee and the Planning Commission are updating their respective plans - Park Committee is updating the 5 year Recreation Plan, and the Planning Commission is updating the Comprehensive Plan.  Please follow the link below to take the survey to help shape where we are going in the Township.  Share with you friends and family.  You don't need to be a Township resident, only an interested participant. If you would rather a paper copy, email the Township office and we can email, or mail you one to return to us.  We will take responses until December 1st.  Thank you in advance!


Eagle Harbor Township Survey



Township business is moving along, we are in the office on a regular schedule.  The office door may still be locked, but a simple knock will get us to let you in.  Masked up, of course but we are happy to see your face and help you out.  If you wish to make an appointment, call or email ahead of time and we will make sure we are here.  Preparations are under way for the election, we have done the pre-accuracy test for the voting equipment, and our public accuracy test will be on the 23rd of October.  There have been many absentee ballots going out and coming back, and we are like the rest of the country with many people utilizing that avenue for voting.  In-person voting will be handled with the utmost care so don't hesitate to come in and do it the old fashioned way!


If there is anything we can do for you, please call or email - that's why we are here!




Volunteer Day in Eagle Harbor-take two!  The Park Committee will be out on the hiking/ski trails in Eagle Harbor to clear brush and limbs in anticipation of the coming winter season!  We will meet at 11:00 am on Friday the 18th parking at the Ski-Trail Building past the cemetery.  We will have some tools available (loppers, bow saws, etc.) but if you have a favorite tool please bring it along with appropriate footwear and water.  See you then!




Volunteer Day in Eagle Harbor!  The completion of the 6th Street trail was slated for Monday August 31st.  We had a nice turnout, even for the predicted rain that eventually came down.  A big thank you to Don Keith, Marlin Wingard, Lawrence McKenny, Barry Bogart, Kerrie Richert, Gina Nicholas, Nick Wilson, Tony Lizzadro, Bryce Holden, and Rich Probst for sweating it out before the big rains came down!  The trail turned out very nice and will be a nice addition to the Township!  


Also, thanks to the Keweenaw Community Foundation and the PHF Outdoor Wellness and Recreation grant that provided funds for the development of this trail.  Stay tuned for more information on this and other projects in the area!

COVID19 Preparedness and Response Plan

Because the Township is an essential business, we are required to post a COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan.  This much more detailed plan from our initial one, is recommended by our Township Association and is a requirement of the Governors Executive Order as she reopens the State.  It is available to read at the Township Office as well, please send an email, or call to inspect.

Weather on Brockway Mountain!!


We have been fortunate to have someone volunteer his time and resources to install a weather station at the summit of Brockway Mountain. Click either of the links below to view current data. Thanks to John Lenters for the setup and we look forward to more weather related information from him in the near future!

Due to technological difficulties - mainly the loss of 3G data compatibility - the weather station won't be up and running until Spring/Sumer 2020

           ***********************************    EHT   Cross Country Ski Trails




Thank you to the Keweenaw Community Foundation.  Through a Cross Country Ski Grant, Eagle Harbor Township was able to purchase a new pole saw for trimming the limbs back along the trail.  We also purchased a 5 1/2 foot roller that we are able to use to pack early season snow and large snowfalls easier and more efficiently.
Please think about supporting the Keweenaw Community Foundation - especially the Cross Country Ski Endowment if you enjoy skiing in the Keweenaw!
