The roads throughout Sunset Forest are a compacted gravel mixture and, like all types of roads, must be maintained and occasionally improved. Sunset Forest roads are private and not maintained by the City of Mackinac Island or the Mackinac State Park. Our Association’s Road Committee is currently implementing a four-year program to repair and regravel all the roads beginning from the Stonecliffe gate which is intended to be complete by the end of 2020. Annual dues from the neighborhood developments, along with support from Grand Hotel, fund this maintenance. Direct any road concerns to the President of your development.
Mackinac Island allows snowmobile use during the winter and while they need snow to operate, the Sunset Forest roads must be plowed to a certain degree to allow access by emergency vehicles. Sunset Forest roads are private and not maintained by the City of Mackinac Island or the Mackinac Island State Park. Our Association’s Road Committee manages the snowplowing and annual dues from the neighborhood developments fund this service. Direct any plowing concerns to the President of your development.
Stylish yet simple street lamps appear throughout Sunset Forest. The particular style of lamp was chosen for our community as it provided only downward illumination and would protect the view of the night sky.
Property owners engaged in new construction are encouraged to sponsor the purchase and installation of a new street lamp at their property. Direct any street lamp questions or concerns to the President of your development. Our Association’s Road Committee manages the operation of the street lamps.
