The Michigan DNR and the private owner on South Fox Island are claiming
that the new exchange proposal is equitable and that the state actually
gains one acre of land.
In the Traverse City Record-Eagle, Saturday November 10, 2001, page 2A
the State says that they would swap 218 acres in the central part of
South Fox Island.
In the Northern Express Weekly, November 15, 2001, page 7 Johnson says he
wants 218 acres of state land on the west side of South Fox
The problem is, that if you check the deeds for the publicly owned
properties to be transferred, you will find that the State will be giving
up a lot more acres than that. 24.95 acres to be
State Land to be traded for private land: South Fox Island Leelanau
County T34N R13W

Section 8 Lot

120.00 acres --- Deed dated October 28, 1963 Liber 133 Page 193
242.95 acres total land to be traded from state ownership into private ownership NOT 218.00 acres.
This is already a bad deal. The extra 24.95 acres that the State is "throwing in" makes it worse.
