The Property

 The property is a unique gem of the Grand Traverse Bay watershed, and plays a key role in supporting important natural habitat, biodiversity and coastal resiliency in the beloved and renowned Leelanau peninsula.

 Developed as a campground called Timber Shores in the 1960s and 1970s, the property was popular with vacationing families, many Northport business owners and local workers. Although varied development ideas have been proposed over time, the land has remained idle for decades.

 The majority of the property is prime for conservation and environmental stewardship. The 1,800 feet of shoreline hosts critical native fishery habitat along with acres of important wetlands, streams, and woodlands that are home to plants, birds, and wildlife. Some upland sections hold potential for critically-needed workforce housing or other appropriately-sized uses that align with community priorities.
