Leelanau Ticker "Momentum Builds For Timber Shores Preservation Plan"

"One milestone down, another one to go. That’s the current status report for a local nonprofit and its ambitious plan to buy and preserve the Timber Shores property near Northport.

The Timber Shores land presently belongs to the developers who tried in 2021 to turn it into an RV resort. But that project was plagued by considerable public backlash, lawsuits, and even a ballot referendum, all of which derailed plans to put 355 RV sites and 15 tent sites on the property. The cool reception also ultimately opened the door for NCV to mount a campaign aimed at purchasing the property and utilizing it as a publicly accessible nature preserve and the home of a small attainable housing development, among other potential uses."
