ABOUT

 

On January 12, 2021, the Lake County Planning Department met with the County Commissioners to discuss planning priorities for 2021. While it was acknowledged that there are many items that need an update, the County Commissioners requested that an update to the Lakeshore Protection Regulations would be the priority in 2021. As a result, at the Planning Board meeting on February 10th, 2021, the Lake County Planning Department and Lake County Planning Board began discussing how to accomplish the requested update to the Lakeshore Protection Regulations. 

The Planning Board has discussed the Lakeshore Protection Regulations at various meetings in 2021 and will meet again to discuss select amendments being proposed at the upcoming meeting.
