HISTORY OF BAY HARBOR

FOR MORE THAN 22 YEARS, THIS STUNNING FIVE-MILE DEVELOPMENT ALONG THE LAKE MICHIGAN SHORELINE WEST OF PETOSKEY HAS GROWN FROM A SMALL CLUSTER OF EXCLUSIVE LAKESIDE HOMES INTO 30 DIFFERENT FAMILY-FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOODS, A WORLD-CLASS GOLF DESTINATION, AN UNPARALLELED YACHT CLUB EXPERIENCE, PUBLIC MARINA AND LAKE ACCESS, PLUS AN EVOLVING SHOPPING AND DINING DISTRICT KNOWN AS THE VILLAGE. WITH THE OPENING OF THE GREAT LAKES CENTER FOR THE ARTS IN THE SUMMER OF 2018, THE BAY HARBOR COMMUNITY IS GEARING UP FOR ANOTHER BIG ACT!

THEN

“This is extraordinary,” said Denny Brya, General Manager of Bay Harbor under its developer, David V. Johnson. "We are on the cusp of another very exciting time in Bay Harbor’s history that shifts our downtown more toward social gathering, casual dining and entertainment. Visitors and year ’round residents will find new and inviting experiences as we introduce a worldclass arts and cultural hub in 2018, the Great Lakes Center for the Arts. There is so much momentum, it’s truly going to benefit the entire region as we unveil our plans over the next year." HISTORY AND A COMMITMENT TO THE PETOSKEY AREA Bay Harbor got rolling in earnest in 1994, with the demolition of the old Penn-Dixie smokestacks that were blown up in a shoreline ceremony featuring then-Michigan Gov. John Engler, who helped detonate the explosives. Engler told the crowd gathered that Bay Harbor would be “the crown jewel of Michigan,” and “a place that will put this region on the national map, if not the world map.” As construction and land preparation got under way in the mid- to late-1990s, the view across the landscape featured the groan-and-churn of construction

equipment, clouds of dust and work crews hammering out houses. When the dust settled at each major construction site, what was revealed was breathtaking: Magnificent estates were rising along the beautifully rugged shoreline; lavish landscaping details flourished amidst large, secluded lots; and expansive complexes would become a yacht club, golf course and shopping district. “Bay Harbor’s 30 different neighborhoods are unique because they contain a variation of product types to meet different lifestyles in both size and placement along 5 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. They offer the ability for 2,000 square foot and 10,000 square foot homes to blend in harmony with exterior architectural control and superior enforcement of landscape requirements and home placement,” said Mr. Johnson, the developer. He noted the varied lifestyles that are afforded among Bay Harbor’s living communities as adding to Bay Harbor’s allure over 20+ years. “The Peninsula and The Shores feature stunning Hamptonsstyle homes where you can park a 120foot yacht on Bay Harbor Lake and have Lake Michigan on the other side with the most magnificent sunsets in the world,” Johnson said. “The harbor is adorned with

PETOSKEY 231.439.2800 | BOYNE CITY 231.582.1111

uniquely positioned boathouses where you can park your 80-foot boat in your living room. All of these different home choices are what add dimension and strength to the Bay Harbor real estate market, its timelessness for the longterm future and its unique position in the resort real estate marketplace.” Johnson also added that architectural excellence is what has differentiated Bay Harbor more than 20 years after its founding. “While the unique original vision of Michigan historic turn-of-the-century architecture in harmony with nature is fantastic, what is amazing is the outstanding team of professionals at Bay Harbor Company that have administered and held accountability to the founding principles of architectural excellence as building has continued and renovations have taken place,” Johnson said. The Bay Harbor Co. has indeed beautified the landscape, and has also been dedicated to giving back. The Bay Harbor Foundation, funded by its residents and philanthropists, has directed nearly $2 million to over 102 area nonprofit organizations of all types, benefiting youth, health & human services, arts, and environmental

preservation efforts. The Foundation also provides college scholarships annually for employees, children or grandchildren of Bay Harbor employees. The Foundation’s annual Vintage Car & Boat Festival each June (June 22-24, 2017) is a major fundraiser for the organization and is attended by thousands who get a glimpse into one-of-kind classic vintage automobiles and boats. The Baynanza Dinner and Auction, also that same weekend in June, is another way for the Foundation to raise funds “to continue to pursue our mission and care for our neighbors and our community,” said Candace Fitzsimons, the Foundation’s Executive Director. Local residents and visitors have further benefited from almost a mile of public parks at each end of the community, East and West Parks. Bay Harbor has also had a considerable impact on providing local jobs; thousands of trades and service workers over the past 20 years have supported themselves and their families based on the steady success of Bay Harbor. Additionally, Bay Harbor’s residents and businesses contribute hundreds of millions in taxes to Michigan’s economy each year, he added. “Bay Harbor’s strength is that it has weathered economic cycles and is truly a generational family community for the ages,” Johnson said. “As Chairman of Bay Harbor Company, it has consistently been my and our company’s goal to maximize real estate values.” THE ENTIRE BAY HARBOR COMMUNITY PLANS FOR A 2018 GRAND OPENING SUMMER The Grand Opening of the Great Lakes Center for the Arts in July of 2018 is a big catalyst behind the efforts to shift The Village into more of an “eatertainment” district that includes something for everyone (see related story on the Great Lakes Center for the Arts). The Center is the anchor to the Village, creating prime opportunity for walkable street cafes, tap rooms and

22

other new dining and gathering spaces. Browse around shopping will be offered in pop-up shops carrying unique, upscale merchandise. “Bay Harbor Village contains similar aspects to Aspen Village with shopping and dining amidst lakes instead of mountains,” said Johnson. The next phase of Bay Harbor is happening now. Leading the reinvention efforts are several groups that have come together with plenty of enthusiasm and passion for seeing it come to fruition; most of these members are volunteers committed to ensuring the success of Bay Harbor for generations to come. The Bay Harbor Marketing Alliance is the umbrella organization coordinating the efforts utilizing Bay Harbor’s numerous entities and real estate. The community is following the nationally proven Main Street Program for re-envisioning downtowns. Heidi Geiger, a Bay Harbor resident, has been leading the Main Street initiative as facilitator at regular meetings that have brought together a large group of residents, business leaders and community stakeholders to map out the future vision for the Village at Bay Harbor. “The Main Street Approach was such a great way for us to organize and prioritize the great assets and ideas for the re-envisioning of Bay Harbor’s Village,” Geiger said. “We know the community will join us to experience the new Village at Bay Harbor reveal in May 2018 – just a year away, and in time for the Great Lakes Center for the Arts’ premiere season.” The Upper Village plans are new to the conversation. Near the Bay Harbor entrance, two sections of land are being prepped to attract service and retail, including the possibility of bike rentals at the key location along the famed Little Traverse Wheelway. Eleven new luxury lakeview home sites are also in development near the Bay Harbor entrance. Added Brya: “It is an exciting time

to be involved with Bay Harbor, but really, that has always been the case. Communities naturally evolve and change with the generations. We are fortunate to have leadership within the company and community with deep and meaningful vision, and also passion for the success of Bay Harbor,” said Brya. “We are looking forward to sharing this next phase in the story of Bay Harbor with our residents and also importantly with the greater Northern Michigan community.”

Opening July 2018! a 501(c)3 charitable organization


Great Lakes Center for the Arts is the newest star of the North! 2018 Premiere Summer Season performances announced in July 2017! Grand opening set for July 2018.

KINDLY TAKE YOU WHEN THE CURTAIN GOES UP IN JULY 2018 AT THE GREAT LAKES CENTER FOR THE ARTS, A NEW WORLD-CLASS PERFORMING ARTS EXPERIENCE WILL TAKE CENTER STAGE IN NORTHERN MICHIGAN. The Center’s state-of-the-art 500-seat theater, located on the pristine shores of Lake Michigan in Petoskey, will offer a yearround line-up of performances across all genres: music, dance, theater, movies and film, intellectual dialogue and education. Located nearby to the quaint and welcoming communities of Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Boyne City and Charlevoix, the Center’s design elements reflect the beauty found in the natural environment around Northwest Michigan. Steps away from the lobby entrance is Bay Harbor Lake Marina and the Village at Bay Harbor shopping and dining district. “With a mission to serve as a cultural

24

and social hub for Northern Michigan, the Center will feature year-round, compelling performances with virtually limitless possibilities to inspire, entertain, and educate through the performing arts,” said Executive Director Jill O’Neill. In addition to the theater and its diverse performances, the Center will house a community engagement room for education and receptions, a rooftop deck and donor lounge, among other amenities. “The Center will be a regional, national and international destination for the cultural arts, intellectual dialogue and impactful arts education programs,” said Michael M. Kaiser, Chairman of the DeVos Institute of Arts Management in Washington, D.C. and President Emeritus of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Mr. Kaiser is serving as Lead Strategy Consultant and Founding Artistic Director for the Center. “Programming will be year-round and include popular, classical, jazz and country music performances, theatrical productions, music festivals, opera, dance, lectures and

children’s series.” Construction of this bright new star in the constellation of Michigan’s arts and cultures venues is well under way (visit the Center’s web site for up-to-date construction photos: www.greatlakescfa.org). Groundbreaking took place on July 2, 2016, with Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder attending alongside more than 400 civic, government and community leaders. Grand Opening is July 2018, with a star-studded line up scheduled to launch the inaugural season; 2018 Premiere Summer Season programming will be announced in July 2017. Claudette Donlon is the expert behind negotiating contracts with performers, and she is busy finalizing the diverse slate of events for the Premiere Summer Season. Ms. Donlon is the Chief Operating Officer and Senior Consultant at the Devos Institute of Arts Management, and a consultant to the Great Lakes Center for the Arts. “This is really going to be a phenomenal, exciting inaugural season,”

Details about programming and subscriptions will be available mid-July on the Center’s web site: www.greatlakescfa.org.

Traveling to a world-class performing arts center by boat is a special experience not found in many communities around Michigan, or the United States. In the fresh water-focused Great Lakes region of Northern Michigan, the newest performing arts venue – the Great Lakes Center for the Arts, opening in summer of 2018 - will offer boaters the chance to tie up dockside, stroll shops and restaurants and take in a show in one of Michigan’s most picturesque lakeside communities. Of course, travelers arriving in all types of vehicles, by water or road, are welcome to the shores of Little Traverse Bay to enjoy performances in the state-of-the-art 500-seat theater, located steps away from Bay Harbor Lake Marina and nearby to the communities of Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Boyne City and Charlevoix.

DARK-SKY friendly

Did you know that the Great Lakes Center for the Arts is located along one of the most special stretches of the state’s coastline known as Michigan’s Dark Sky Coast? In 2012, Governor Rick Snyder signed legislation protecting over 22,000 acres of land along Emmet County’s Lake Michigan shoreline from the effects of light pollution – most prominent among them the loss of the view of the undiluted night sky that so many treasure Up North. The Center is doing its part to protect this star of Northern Michigan by using dark-sky compliant LED light fixtures that direct light downward instead of shining it needlessly up into the night sky. This provides ample lighting for safely navigating the Center’s exterior grounds while not wasting light, in dollars and sense.

KIDDLEAVY.COM


“ We invite you to experience exceptional Northern Michigan Wines and share in the delightful atmosphere and scenery the ‘Tip of the Mitt’ wine region has to offer.” - bayviewwinetrail.com

As the fabled “Million Dollar Sunset” begins its slow dive into Little Traverse Bay, you find yourself perched atop a rolling hill that drops off down toward the water. In between you and the bay are vineyards, orchards, and swooping valleys wafting with the fresh Northern Michigan air. You swirl your glass of Mackinaw Trail Winery’s Unrestricted No. 7. Taking a sip, you smile as you realize: You’ve arrived. And you’re smack in the middle of the Bay View Wine Trail with more to discover.

Following the shores of Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay and the inland lakes, you’ll discover new wineries with old world charm in the area that circles the bay. It’s no secret that resorters have been flocking to the region for over 125 years. Today, nine wineries (with more joining over the next year) have bonded together to create an indelible oenophile experience for both the newbie drinker and notable sommelier. For those unfamiliar with Northern Michigan, wine might not be the first thing that springs to mind, but there’s a unique microclimate along Michigan’s northwest coast – a product of the exposed bluffs and the winds off the bay – that makes this a welcoming place for grapes to grow. For years, most of the region’s winemaking has been concentrated in Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties, but the Bay View

Wine Trail has quickly become a new destination for wine connoisseurs. From Petoskey east to Alanson and then back west to Harbor Springs, Emmet County’s Bay View Wine Trail offers nine quality wineries that aim to bring visitors the most unique of new Northern Michigan wines. The best part is they don’t just stop at the wine. There’s farm to table cuisine, beers, ciders, educational classes and family friendly “agri-tourism.” Formed in 2014, the Bay View Wine Trail is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promote the local wine industry’s evolution and development. The distinctive attributes of this wine industry located above the 45th parallel (that imaginary line connecting the world’s best grape-growing regions, from Bordeaux to Piedmont to the West Coast) really sets it apart in terms of its offerings. Much of the grapes grown here are bred to be ‘cold hardy’ with flavor profiles that differ from the traditional vinifera varieties grown in other wine producing regions of the U.S. and Europe. It’s ‘Tip of the Mitt’ AVA assignation truly demonstrates the great spectrum of wine and other beverage choices available. According to Michiganwines.com, the official website of Michigan’s Wine Industry, Michigan is home to 131 wineries bottling more than 2.4 million gallons of wine annually. Production of Michigan wine has increased 34% over the last five years.

Maple Moon started as a maple syrup business, but the Petersen family began experimenting with turning their maple syrups into wine – fermenting the syrup and sap – and these unusual wines have been earning raves for their tone and sweet creamy finish, especially the aptly named Maple Gold. Bonus: maple ice cream, candy and syrup are also available. SEASONS OF THE NORTH 9090 Michigan 68, Alanson 231-548-1280 | www.seasonsofthenorth.com

Utilizing premium hybrid grapes specially designed for the northern climate, Seasons of the North focuses on intriguing handcrafted wine flavors that complement local foods. Located just minutes from I-75, these medal-winning wines include The Cabin, a dry red wine made from Michigan Marechal Foch grapes, and Burt Lake Breeze, from imported seyval blanc. CROOKED VINE Est. 2013 8370 Lakeview Road, Alanson 231-881- 6582 | www.crookedvinewine.com

With a name inspired by their surroundings, Crooked Vine makes the best of the breezes from Crooked Lake to develop the flavor of their grapes. The results include wines like Tip of the Mitt Red and the more complex dry red Marquette. The Peach Sangria, a light refreshing pour made from peach wine with mango and lime notes, is just the thing for outdoor summer dining. HARBOR SPRINGS WINERY 5581 S. Lake Shore Drive, Harbor Springs 231-526-3276 | www.harborspringswinery.com

RIDING HIGH on the Top of Michigan Trails

86

KIDDLEAVY.COM


Swooping past the Little Traverse Bay on your way down from Harbor Springs, you pause at a rest area across from the Petoskey Brewing Company off M-119. As you contemplate a quick ‘bite/sip’ at the brewery, you notice full bike racks and folks waddling about in their brightly colored biking gear (and their bicycling clip-in booties) over near a cute little cottage tucked into the hillside. Welcome to the ‘Ultimate Trailhead’ on the Little Traverse Wheelway in Petoskey.

A FAITHFUL FOLLOWING While bike trail riding is not considered the #1 activity among most residents and visitors of the Northwest Michigan region, it is a recreational activity that has gained a great following in the past decade, along with a burgeoning advocacy movement that engenders the health and wealth benefits to our recreation oriented economy. Two years ago, Michigan State University conducted a survey on the Little Traverse Wheelway and a seven-mile section of the North Western State Trail that runs from Petoskey to Alanson. The university determined that during non-snow months there were over 100,000 uses of these trails and the people using the trails spent close to $750,000 in the Petoskey/ Harbor Springs/Alanson area. Many of these trail users did not have access to information about our great trail network in Northern Michigan. The Top of Michigan Trails Council is the best ambassador to provide this information through their Ultimate Trailhead project. “Through the

Trails Council, we build and maintain the trails because we see it as our contribution toward building and stewarding the community as a whole,” noted Luther Kurtz, Mayor of Charlevoix and current Trails Council board president.

THE ULTIMATE TRAILHEAD The Top of Michigan Trails Council is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to advocate for and facilitate the planning, construction and maintenance of a network of non-motorized, multipurpose recreational trails in Northern Michigan. Beginning in 2014, the Trails Council embarked on a unique opportunity to purchase the well-known and historically significant limestone cottage located on an accessible and highly visible intersection of two trails and the well-traveled section of M-119 connecting Petoskey and Harbor

PETOSKEY 231.439.2800 | BOYNE CITY 231.582.1111

Springs. The repurposing and preservation of a landmark structure - that research indicates dates back between 1860 –1880 - demonstrates how important it is to have this treasure available for the community and future generations to enjoy. That same year, the Petoskey Noon Rotary Club chose the Trails Council Ultimate Trailhead project as the partner for their annual Diamonds & Denim event. The Trails Council proposed the purchase of the stone house on M-119 which would become home to it’s headquarters. The Ultimate Trailhead would also provide a regional hub in Northern Michigan allowing the Trails Council to complete the organization’s Strategic Trail Development Plan. This plan connects trails for hiking and biking between cities throughout Northern Michigan including Mackinaw City, Petoskey, Charlevoix, Gaylord, Cheboygan, Rogers City and Alpena.

“The historic stone building where the Little Traverse Wheelway meets the Northwestern State Trail on M-119 is the perfect place to provide education, trail maps, safety information and other benefits to the public,” said former Trails Council board president, Steve Biggs. “The Ultimate Trailhead would function like a trails chamber of commerce,” said Biggs. “From this location, the Trails Council will be able to plan, execute and evaluate programs to help communities become ‘trail towns’ and realize the greatest economic impact from the trails. In addition, we will preserve a beautiful historic building and almost an acre of green space along the Little Traverse Wheelway.” The Trails Council presented their concept to the Petoskey Noon Rotary Club as a respected partner to collaborate with them on this project through their annual fund raising event, Diamonds and Denim in September of 2015. The Rotary Club of Petoskey was responsible for turning a previous "no vote" to a "yes vote" for the athletic complex as people went from opposing a millage request to a large margin of support for the millage necessary to build and update the structure. Whereas

88

a vote was necessary from Petoskey only to support the athletic complex, numerous trails are located throughout Northern Michigan, which will support the trails project through the revenue bicyclists bring to businesses along the routes. Diamonds & Denim 2015 was a grand success and exceeded initial monetary projections by raising over $55,000 with an additional $25,000 grant from the Rotary Park Fund to the Trails Council. On top of that, a gift of $130,000 from the Offield Family Foundation of Harbor Springs to the Trails Council has brought the Ultimate Trailhead facility to reality.

HISTORY The Top of Michigan Trails Council was formed in 1995. Prior to the creation of the Trails Council, the Little Traverse Wheelway Committee worked for over 30 years to develop a trail for non-motorized use around Little Traverse Bay from Harbor Springs to Charlevoix. The Trails Council has helped develop over 200 miles of trails around Northern Michigan. One of the more popular routes, the Little Traverse Wheelway connects multiple bike trails

from Charlevoix to Petoskey to Harbor Springs. This turn-of-the-century former railway, stretching more than 26 miles along the bay between Charlevoix and Harbor Springs, now serves as one of the region’s most scenic non-motorized trails. The wide, curvy, paved pathway makes it especially friendly for families and large riding groups. The “East Segment,” primarily located in Petoskey, is a stunning section; start at the Little Traverse History Museum, and continue northeast along Bayfront Park and then through the gorgeous, meandering streets of the historic Victorian-era community of the Bay View Association. One of the early supporters of the Trails Council has a modern day connection to both Bay View and Petoskey Rotary. Horace “Huffy” Huffman, whose daughter, Lisa Loyd is married to Ric Loyd, are both life-long members of Bay View, with Ric also being a member of the Petoskey Noon Rotary Club. Huffman, the retired Chairman of Huffy Corporation of Dayton, Ohio, had been involved in a successful Miami Valley Regional Bicycle Council. Beginning in 1994 Huffman and Tom Bailey (both of the Little Traverse Conservancy) championed the concept and coordination of numerous

KIDDLEAVY.COM


trail user groups in Emmet, Charlevoix and Cheboygan counties. According to the history of the Trails Council, Huffman and Bailey recognized a lack of overall coordination, direction and planning of recreational trail activity in Northern Michigan to meet the demands of an expanding population and the rapid growth of tourism to the area. Huffman and Bailey pre-determined in their minds what the mission of the evolving organization should be: “To facilitate the establishment of a multi-use, year ’round, safe recreational trail system in Charlevoix, Cheboygan and Emmet counties.”

ADVOCACY AND INFRASTRUCTURE INTERSECT Most statewide advocacy groups also host major bicycling events that help them raise both funds and awareness about bicycling in Michigan. The Michigan Trails and Greenway Alliance’s Michigander ride draws more than 750 participants, and generates more than $50,000 in net revenue for the organization. The advocacy community’s involvement in coordinating events has helped them better understand how communities are embracing bicycling. Most stakeholders expressed the sense that more communities are embracing bicycle events and the idea that they bring an infusion of money into a community. As Rich Moeller, the Executive Director of the League of Michigan Bicyclists, said: “Communities are glad that we are there; they thank us for bringing our tour through. We had to re-route the ride this year and had one local business that moved their tent to another community to capture the

sales. There are little stories like that where business owners are going the extra mile to capture impact from rides and tours.”

BICYCLING A BOOM FOR MICHIGAN Based on surveying conducted by BBC Research and Consulting of Denver, Colorado, for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), four percent of Michigan residents participated in a bicycle related event or vacation during the past year and about half of those who participated in events reported participating in more than two events. Respondents who participated in bicycle-related events and vacations were asked to estimate their expenses for food, travel and other expenses. The total benefits calculated for the state of Michigan is approximately $668 million including: • Household retail spending on bicycling $175 million • Manufacturing $11 million • Avoided health care costs $256 million • Reduced absenteeism $187 million

And when it comes to infrastructure, placemaking and policy, many cities and communities have made substantial investments in bicycle infrastructure in recent years. In Detroit, the Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative has completed six miles of a nine-mile path called the Conner Creek Greenway. The City of Grand Rapids has a goal of completing 100 miles of bicycle lanes by 2015. Bicycle infrastructure development has been linked closely with the complete streets and placemaking movements and is seen by many officials and stakeholders as a tool for economic development. This dynamic combination of infrastructure, tourism potential and recent shifts in policy means Michigan has an opportunity to become one of the most bicycle-friendly states in the nation. The Project for Public Spaces, a nonprofit working to build stronger communities, says placemaking is “both an overarching idea and hands-on tool for improving a neighborhood, city or region. Michigan is the number one state for rail trails – we have so many opportunities...as a state, it is time to grab on to the bicycle as a way to re-brand ourselves.” Sounds like it’s a grand time to jump on your bike and go for a ride.
