Sandpiper Shores is a 72-acre wetland property on the west side of Mosquito Bay with 365 feet of shoreline at the mouth of the Thorofare, north Priest Lake.
The site has been previously approved for a 14 Lot major subdivision. The developer purchasing the site is in the final stages of site inspection with plans to develop the site. Currently, it is unknown what the developer plans to develop the area.
PLCOA is concerned over the potential development of the Sandpiper Shores – Mosquito Bay wetlands and is working to inform the public about the critical importance of preserving wetland ecosystems and the potential permanent loss of a critical Class I Idaho Panhandle wetland system on the north end of Priest Lake.
The Selkirk Conservation Alliance released this press release in January 2022, with more information about the threat.
