A Lake Improvement Board is a Michigan statutory public agency established under Part 309 of the Michigan Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act (Public Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, as amended). Part 309 is a project-oriented statute that authorizes (either through petition of lake front property owners or resolution from a local unit of government) the creation of a lake improvement board to carry out projects for improvement of an inland lake. Such improvements include projects designed to improve or develop recreational and conservation benefits; to eliminate pollution or water conditions that jeopardize the public health and safety; and to increase the value or use of lands and property arising from an improvement to an inland lake (from Oakland County’s Lake Improvement Board Manual)
LAKE IMPROVEMENT BOARDS ARE NOT PART OF NOR RUN BY EITHER CITY OR OAKLAND COUNTY. The Lake Board is a separate statutory public agency that is charged with the responsibility of carrying out desired improvements for a specific lake as governed by Public Act 451 of 1994, Part 309, as amended.
Additional information about lake improvement boards can be found on the Oakland County website.
Members of a Lake Improvement Board are designated by law.
