The Presque Isle Harbor Association is a single family residential community serving the needs of homeowners and land owners. The Presque Isle Harbor development began in 1968 with American Central Corporation, a subsidiary of International Paper, purchasing the land from the Fletcher family of Alpena. American Central incorporated the Association into a Michigan Non-Profit Corporation in 1972 and in 1976 transferred all assets to the Association and removed themselves from the scene.
The Association development is bounded to the East by Lake Huron, to the West by Grand Lake, to the North by Thompson Harbor Park and to the South by the community of Presque Isle. With the addition of Lake Esau within it’s boundaries, there is approximately 4 miles of shoreline. The Association’s property consists of approximately 3000 acres, of which 2000 acres is divided into 12 plated subdivisions. These subdivisions are further divided into 3100 lots that are approved for residential housing. The remaining property is designated as “common property” on which the Association’s physical assets are located. Annual operation of the Association is financially supported through the payment of an assessment by the owner of each lot which also entitles the member access to a variety of amenities (see Section V, B below). Currently, 2290 members own 3100 lots; 428 of these lots are occupied by a residential dwelling. Members who purchase property are not required to construct a dwelling on their property.
Presque Isle Harbor Association is a Michigan corporation. The purpose of the Association is to promote the health, safety and welfare of the residents and property owners within the Presque Isle Harbor subdivisions in Presque Isle and Krakow Townships, Michigan. PIHA is run by a board of directors which manages the common property and amenities through financing supported by a member assessment on a per lot basis which gives access to the amenities according to the By-Laws.
