Welcome to the Village of Northport
Northport is a picturesque, waterfront community with a proud heritage dating back to 1849. Located in northeastern Leelanau County on the shore of Grand Traverse Bay, the Village of Northport has a rich historical heritage and a wealth of scenic beauty, small town character, and recreational opportunities. With over two miles of water frontage, an outstanding marina, well maintained parks, a public school, a wide variety of unique shops, and its beautiful setting amidst beaches, rolling hills, and orchards, Northport offers a high quality of life for its year round residents -as well as attractive amenities for the town’s many seasonal residents and visitors.
Northport is establishing itself as a leader in promoting a “green” environment with a wind powered turbine generating electricity for our wastewater treatment plant, a completed stormwater runoff project on Nagonaba Street as well as streetscape additions, a new rain garden, and promotion of dark sky lighting.
