We are always looking for people that want to be involved with township planning and zoning. The Planning Commission works on the Townships 5 year Comprehensive Plan and, reflected through that, the Zoning Ordinance. The Planning Commission has regularly scheduled meetings throughout the year. The Zoning Board of Appeals(ZBA) looks at issues that residents have with interpreting the ordinance. The ZBA meets when necessary, to hear and decide appeals on provisions of the Ordinance. Full time residents are the best fit for these boards, but we’re pretty flexible.
Updated Brockway Mountain Protected
Many people do not know that the summit of
Brockway Mountain is privately owned. Through partnership with The
Nature Conservancy, Houghton Keweenaw Conservation District, Keweenaw Land
Trust, and the Copper Country Audubon, Eagle Harbor Township and private
donors alike have protected Brockway Mountain for public access in
perpetuity. The Township and our partners has raised funds and received
a MNRTF grant that allows the purchase of the property and associated closing
expenses. We have closed on the property on February 14, and thank everyone
for their support, with a special thanks to the current property owners for

Town Hall / Fire Hall Complex Committee
321 Center Street
The Township board established a committee to look into the feasibility of building a new fire hall, and/or a new township hall complex. The current township office space was built in 1955, with the fire hall built in 1981, and has been added on to several times to meet growing needs. The committee has had two meetings, looking at needs and uses of current facilities, and examining the needs and uses of the township in the future. Expect to hear more from this committee; from updates to fundraising we will keep you in the loop. Would you like to be involved on the committee? Send questions or comments to Marlin Wingard at email@example.com or Jo Cauvin at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rich Probst at email@example.com.
