Michigan National Guard Announces Purchase of 44 Acres in Dundee

By Milan Eagle media

At a press conference in Dundee the Michigan National Guard announced its purchase of 44 acres of Dundee land near Arbor Chase and Circle Seven Drs. from Monroe Bank and Trust for a maintenance and training facility called a super armory. A super armory is described as an armory composed of multiple units as opposed to an armory with a single unit. Construction of the armory and maintenance facility will cost about $42 -50 million depending on various news outlets. Federal funding is still being finalized and a completion date has not been set yet.
“This new super armory will bring an economic boom to Monroe County. Thirty full-time positions and 500 National Guard members will call Dundee home,” said Sen. Zorn.
Tim Lake, president and CEO of the Monroe County Business Development Corp., said he expects the new facility to bring an additional $2 to $3 million annually to the county in spending.
Dundee Village manager Uhl said he encourages those with questions or concerns about the super armory to call or visit his office at 350 W. Monroe St. in Dundee. He can be reached at 734-529-3430.
