The recently proposed development at the Crystal Harbor Marina property located at 5664 S. Dunns Farm Road in Glen Arbor, sparked immediate and great concern over the possibility of multiple housing units, boat slips and parking on the eight-acre parcel. However, no action was taken to submit a formal proposal for development of the property to the Glen Arbor Township
Planning Commission and the purchase option on the parcel has expired.

The commercially zoned Crystal Harbor Marina property remains available for purchase. What happens next regarding development of the property remains uncertain.

“At some point the property currently available from longtime owner, Don Lewis, will be sold. However, we don’t know to whom, for what purpose or when that might occur,” said Rob Karner, Glen Lake Association Watershed Biologist. “What we do know is that we will continue to be ever mindful of any development proposals and their potential impact on water quality as it relates to the GLA and its mission of protecting and preserving our waters.”

The Glen Lake Association Board of Directors recently voted in favor of conducting a baseline
water quality study of the Crystal Harbor Marina property in order to obtain current water
statistics that could help guide future uses of the land and waterfront.
