EAGLE RIVER, Mich. (WLUC) - The Keweenaw County Board of Commissioners met Wednesday night to address how a potential large land sale may impact the area.

The parcels span around 34,000 acres and are currently open for public use. However, some worry a land sale may change that in the future. The property stretches from the northern tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula to Lac La Belle. TRG Management LP owns the land. It’s listed for $43.2 million.

To be proactive in this process, the county board created a committee to be involved with the State of Michigan and any potential buyers. The board says it wants to be involved in the selling process.

We will continue to provide updates on this story as it progresses.
