North Shore Center Rendering-Exterior 01

North Shore Center

Sandy Pines continues working with Salem Township, Allegan County Emergency Management, The Michigan State Police Hazard Mitigation Team and FEMA in regards to protecting the residents of Sandy Pines in the event of severe weather.  In the fall of 2018 our grant request was approved by FEMA to construct a two story storm shelter.

The Sandy Pines Storm Committee has worked with the architect to design a multi-purpose two story storm shelter. The storm Shelter will be built on the north shore of Lake Monterey in Phase 4. Upon completion the two story Storm Shelter will be engineered to P-361 FEMA and ICC 500 storm shelter construction standards.

The FEMA grant will pay seventy-five percent of costs associated with hardening.  Sandy Pines is  responsible for 25% of the hardening costs.  Costs not associated with hardening is the responsibility of Sandy Pines.
