GRAYLING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Northern Michigan communities are waiting for a decision from the state regarding the proposed expansion of Camp Grayling after the Roscommon County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously on Friday to go on record in opposition to the expansion proposal.

Residents are now waiting for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to weigh in.

Camp Grayling is asking the Michigan DNR to lease more than 162,000 acres for 20 years. That lease would double the size of what is already the largest National Guard base in the U.S.

Neighboring Otsego and Crawford Counties have asked the DNR to reject the expansion proposal.
