LAKESHORE PROTECTION REGULATIONS AMENDMENT

The Planning Board will review an amendment to the Lake County Lakeshore Protection Regulations. The Planning Board has been holding work sessions to facilitate an update to the regulations. However, in order to move some needed amendments forward, the Planning Board will review proposed updates to standards for boat shelters, breakwater portions of a dock, dock width, and administrative language, as well as various other minor typos, updates, and formatting issues and make a recommendation to the Board of Commissioners. Work sessions on the remainder of the document will continue at future meetings. The current lakeshore protection regulations can be provided by the Lake County Planning Department or found on the Planning Department’s webpage. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting and participate in the process.

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 will begin 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 June meeting.
