Notices to Eagle Harbor Township residents and taxpayers

Hopefully you have found us again!!!

The website is built and maintained by Google Sites and we had to migrate to a new address. Hopefully the issue should be resolved and our regular address will direct people to this new place. In the meantime, I am working through formatting issues and learning a new interface to edit!


September!

Summer is gone! Although, the weather has still been relatively nice and the leaves are just hinting at a change. Labor Day came and went, the NFL season is upon us, and the smell of Fall is in the air. With the kids back in school, the traffic on the beach and the roads has quieted down significantly.

Things in the office are still busy as the last of the summer tax payments come in, we are preparing for out next board meeting on Monday. See the Board Members page for the agenda. The Park Committee will make a presentation to the board on what has happened in 2021 and what they would like to work on in the coming years. The five year Recreation Plan was adopted in August and sent to the State for approval, there are many objectives that are on the horizon for Eagle Harbor Township!


Stop in the office if you are around and say hello. We will problabley start brewing coffee again real soon!

Eagle Harbor Township Recreation Area expansion!

The Clark family has been working with the Township for well over four years to get a pivotal piece of property into the Township hands! It finally closed over the winter and we will be able to keep the trails open and maintained in perpetuity. This portion of the Eagle Harbor Trails has historically been used for the cross country ski trails and we have been allowed to groom and maintain them, with their permission for over 20 years! Thank you Clark Family! The Park Committee is in charge of maintaining these trails and we have recently installed a trailhead sign indicating it as Township property!

This property purchase was made possible with a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant. The Township has been very fortunate to be a recipient of these funds for projects like securing the summit of Brockway Mountain, and other land purchases. Please note that these trails run through Michigan Nature Association sanctuaries and the purpose of these multi-use trials is Non-Motorized uses like hiking, biking, skiing and the like.

Click on the updated Ski Trail Map link - 2021 Map

Please know that we added another trail option, close to the Eliza trailhead - a 1.6K loop that goes around our Well House, called the Wellhead Loop. It is a lollypop loop that does cross the snowmobile trail, so be careful. Check out the map link above.

Current Status of trails: Updated 04/03/21

Fritz Carlton Loop 6K - All

Sand Bay Spur 3.1K - Trails

Abby's Shortcut .6K - Are

Shadow's Shortcut .6K - Not

Wellhead Loop 1.6K - Groomed!!:(

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!


6th Street Trail

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!

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 hasn't been running.....stand by
