The 81 on East Bay Development

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.
