HOUGHTON — The destiny of hundreds of acres of property surrounding six Upper Peninsula Power Co. hydroelectric impoundments in the western and central U.P. is now in the hands of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
UPPCO today forwarded to the FERC the final drafts of its proposed Shoreline Management Plans for project lands surrounding the six impoundments. Wisconsin-based developer Naterra Land has plans to build residential developments on land adjacent to the project lands, “project lands” being defined as land subject to the terms of UPPCO’s FERC licenses for the hydro projects.
Copies of the final shoreline management plans will be made available online today at the UPPCO Web site, www.uppco.com. Choose the “Land Sale” link.
