The North Village

     A Township owned lakefront property has been a discussion topic for many years.  When a large property on the lake recently came up for sale under market value, the Township Board of Trustees decided to purchase the 23 acres, which are located next to the Post Office in Whitmore Lake.  This area has great potential and will allow the Downtown Planning Group and DDA a lot more flexibility in their planning.

   On October 23, 2016, The Downtown Planning Group organized a Ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the purchase of this property, and to get public feedback about what they would like to see done with this area.  It was a huge success, complete with music from the Whitmore Lake High School Marching Band, and Trunk-or Treating for the kids!  Thank you to all who attended!  We are very excited about the possibilities this property will bring to Whitmore Lake!
