GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- The former Pugsley Correctional Facility in Grand Traverse County could have a new use in the future.

County commissioners met Wednesday and approved a re-development agreement.

The county purchased the gun range at the facility for $1 that will be used by the sheriff's office.

North Bay Capital Group LLC wants to buy the property and have Inphastos, a construction technology company, operate there.

Inphastos makes framing for houses such as interior and exterior walls inside of a facility rather than on a construction site.

"We design with precision manufacturing in mind and then we work through that process very closely with the customer and then deliver a pre-manufactured product at the end which can be assembled very quickly. So we're taking out cost we're taking out time," said Craig Wesley, the Vice President of Business Development for Inphastos.

Fife Lake Township also has to approve the Pugsley Redevelopment Agreement.

If they approve it, North Bay will have 120 days to submit a conceptual master development plan to Fife Lake Township.

If that's approved North Bay will have 60 days to submit a plan for Phase One of the project.

Once that's approved North Bay will have to negotiate with the Michigan Land Bank to purchase the phase one area of the property.
