Selfridge ANG Scraps Land Use Plan

The Michigan Air National Guard no longer plans to have long-unused land at Selfridge ANG base undergo commercial redevelopment because government business at the facility is now booming. The Detroit News reports that the Air Guard had selected Beztak Companies to develop the land, including building a hotel, retirement community, medical facilities, and more on about 670 acres, but the federal government now plans to build a new intelligence operations center on the base, which also hosts a US Customs and Border Protection headquarters, Marine Corps units, the Naval Reserve Center Detroit, a Navy construction unit, and a Coast Guard Station. The US Border Patrol, Michigan State Police, and their Canadian counterparts will share the services of the intel center.
