Mt. Pleasant Center – Mt. Pleasant, MI

1400 W. Pickard is a prime development site on Mt. Pleasant’s northwest side. It is the largest contiguous parcel of undeveloped property in the City. Dating back to before 1900, the property was originally the site of the Mt. Pleasant Indian Industrial Boarding School as set aside by the federal government in treaties with the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan. Boarding School operations ceased in the 1930’s when the State of Michigan took ownership of the property. From that time until 2009, the state operated facilities for developmentally disabled individuals across a campus spanning some 23 operational buildings including an administration and hospital building, dormitories and cottages for residents, a central power plant, and other associated structures. At one time the property also supported a working farm operation associated with both the Indian Boarding School and early state home activities. More recently, all structures and supporting infrastructure on the property have been demolished, environmental issues identified and remediated, and the City-owned property returned to a “greenfield” condition suitable for development.

The property is relatively flat and contains a small creek which bisects the site from West to East, as well as several wooded areas. Within the half section of land occupied by the site, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe retains two small parcels while the Mt. Pleasant Public Schools own one additional parcel. Approximately 298 acres remain under City ownership and are available for development.

The southern portion of the property fronts on Pickard Street, a mixed use corridor with average daily trips (ADT) of 11,000 while the northern half of the property is more rural in character with residential development potential. The City is receptive to requests for a change in zoning from the current agriculture designation depending on the nature of a proposed development project. The property is located approximately one mile from downtown Mt. Pleasant and approximately two miles from campus of Central Michigan University. The property is adjacent to the City’s 60-acre Mission Creek Woodland Park.
