Guiding Principles

You can restore your shore, improve the quality of the lakeshore resource, and still enjoy the aesthetic and recreational opportunities the lake provides. It is a matter of balance.

Our guiding principle is to seek a balance that satisfies our lakeshore lifestyle and recreational needs while providing for good habitat and water quality.

We will achieve this by:

  • Managing intact lakeshore remnants and restoring degraded lakeshore systems
  • Reestablishing native plant communities using local origin plants
  • Keeping human disturbances to a minimum

A natural shoreline management approach will enable you to restore, maintain, and preserve the natural attributes of the lakeshore for today and for the future.
