According to the Ludington Daily News since the Michigan Army National Guard unit permanently moved to the Grand Rapids area this previous summer the 58-year-old Manistee armory has sat empty. That is all about to change, as the process has begun to find a new owner for the property.
According to Lt. Col. William Humes, “It is not for sale yet.” He went on to add “The process is pretty extensive and we have policies in place to make sure to get it right”
The property must first be offered to military departments for their use. The second stage is the property will be offered to local government. The third stage would see the property go up for sale to the public if neither of the first two options are exercised.
Humes says, “We have divested a couple armories so we have a system in place.”
Humes finally added, the property is assessed at $350,000.
