It appears the Baypoint Golf course is up for sale again. We believe the potential buyer is proceeding with their due diligence and surveying the property for a possible residential development to be constructed on the golf course site.
Our association had previously been involved with a proposed residential development on the golf course site in 2005. At that time, we worked with the developer and both West Bloomfield and Commerce townships to assist in site planning to address our desire to minimize any adverse impact to our lake. This lead to a win-win plan for the developer, both townships and Middle Straits Lake. As we know that development never came to fruition due to the economic downturn in 2007.
The MSLIA has not seen any preliminary plans for the golf course development at this point. Nor have we been able to identify the possible developer/purchaser of the property. We are hopeful the potential buyer / developer will contact our association and work with us to incorporate and address any lake issues that may arise early on in the planning process and to utilize our resources and intimate knowledge of the lake to produce a lakefront jewel for Middle Straits Lake.
