Dear Members,

I wanted to let you know as soon as possible that your LTYC Board congratulates Irish Boat Shop on the approval of its site plan by the Harbor Springs Planning Commission.

We also thank the City of Harbor Springs and the Planning Commission for engaging in a thorough public review of the proposed plan. LTYC deeply appreciates the obvious efforts by IBS to address many of the concerns raised by the community with respect to their initial proposal. 

We believe the approved plan is clearly better for our Club, and we look forward to working closely with IBS to maximize its benefits to the entire community.

For more than fifty years, the LTYC and IBS have been partners in growing one of the most vibrant boating scenes in the nation. We are glad that this will continue well into the future.
