Township Zoning – Lakefront Ordinance

We encourage everyone to become familiar with the ordinances for your township and work to keep your property compliant. These ordinances were created to protect our lake. Please refer to the county website and the actual zoning language before beginning any project.

This link will take you to a very generalized listing of township ordinances pertaining to shoreline regulations.

The MI Shoreland Stewards program is a statewide recognition program developed by the Michigan Natural Shoreline Partnership to recognize lake shore property owners who protect their lake through good shoreline practices.

Take your survey today at: www.mishorelandstewards.org To provide incentive to people for using the survey, the LCA is giving away three $50 gift certificates to be awarded by random drawing among every Lake Charlevoix Association member who completes the survey.

New for 2016, we have scheduled two weekend sessions to accommodate the less fortunate among us who can only be up here weekends.

Enrollment invitations will be out soon.

Lake water levels are certainly up, as forecast!  The summer of 2015 levels are up about 5″ above the long term averages, and about 10″ higher than last summer.

The forecast is for the usual dropping of levels starting in August.  Fall and winter ice cover as well as precipitation in the Great Lakes basin will determine our next years levels.
