Laventhol Horwath was retained by Huron County to assess reuse opportunities for the conversion of the Port Austin Air Force Radar Station AFS into civilian use. The objective was to develop a reuse planning guide and marketing tool to be utilized in attracting interest in the sites reuse. This has been accomplished through an analysis of the Huron County Market area, an assessment of the site and base facilities, and an analysis of potential reuses for the property. The physical assessment was completed by the local Huron County engineering firm of Williams, Osminski Associates, Inc. The site encompasses approximately 59 acres of land in Port Austin, Michigan. The station has 70 buildings and structures used for military operations prior to the closing in February of 1989.
