After the disappointing vote by the Township Board in August, some homeowners have mobilized to yet still oppose The 81 on East Bay development. (Editor’s Note: also known as the Boursaw Farm Condo Development on the corner of Boursaw and Bluff Roads.)
This was the result of an overwhelming opposition to this development, as evidenced by a petition with approximately 380 signatures of Peninsula homeowners and taxpayers.

As a result, the newly formed nonprofit, Preserve Old Mission, has been created. The mission of this organization is to preserve the natural beauty and environmental quality of the Peninsula, utilizing the existing zoning ordinances and master plan, both of which we feel were ignored.
To that end, Preserve Old Mission, along with neighboring homeowners to the development, filed an administrative appeal in District Court on October 8, 2015. It is estimated that this legal action will come to trial sometime in December.
We are encouraging all neighbors adjacent to this property to join our appeal. If you are a nearby neighbor to the 81 Development and are interested in helping us, please contact Jim Komendera at [email protected] or visit our website at Stoptc.org.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP.
