Lake Improvement Board Manual
Lake Improvement Boards in Oakland County
There are more than 1,400 lakes in Oakland County. The management of the lakes can happen under a number of different methods. The most common method is through local homeowner's associations. Visit the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Inland Lakes website (www.michigan.gov/deq) and/or the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (www.michigan.gov/dnr) for lake information across Michigan.
If the homeowners petition their local unit of government to undertake management of their lake under the provisions of Part 309 of Act 451 of 1994, as amended, Inland Lake Improvements, a Lake Improvement Board is established through that local government unit. In compliance with the statute, the Lake Improvement Board will consist of a member of the County Board of Commissioners, 2 representatives appointed by the local unit of government (if more than one unit of government is involved, then one representative from each is required), a representative of the County Water Resources Commissioner, and a resident riparian of the lake elected by the other members of the Lake Improvement Board.
