Big Plans For Elmwood Township

By Beth Milligan

Could Elmwood Township become the next major tourist destination in northern Michigan?

Township officials are gambling "yes." Eying a comprehensive vision that includes the complete modernization of Elmwood Township Marina, traffic and infrastructure improvements and a rebranding effort designed to capitalize on the community's location between Traverse City and Leelanau County, leaders are pursuing big changes – and turning down immediate profitable opportunities for bigger long-term gains.
