The LaGrange County Plan Commission has reset the public hearing on the proposed zoning changes regarding height and plumbing fixtures to December 16, 2019 at 4PM in the County Annex building directly across from the north side of the court house.
|IMPORTANT PROPOSED LAKE RESIDENTIAL (L-1) ZONING NOTICE TO MEMBERS
The LaGrange County Plan Commission has introduced and scheduled for a public hearing changes to the zoning ordinance that would affect L-1 (Lake residentially zoned) homes and lots.
There are two significant proposed changes. The first change is to prohibit sinks, toilets and other residential plumbing facilities in auxiliary buildings (such as back garages, carriage houses, man-caves and the like). The second change is to restrict auxiliary buildings to one-story.
The public hearing is scheduled for Monday November 25, 2019 at 7PM at the LaGrange County Annex Building. If you have thoughts or opinions on these changes, please feel free to attend and make comment during the public hearing. Alternatively, you could email the Planning Administrator, Robbie Miller, at email@example.com , provide your comments, and ask that they be submitted and considered as a part of the public comments.
Some of the reasons offered for these new proposed restrictions are to prevent lake congestion and the off and/or off season rental of back rentals buildings as a home. The association is unaware that this is a problem on Big Long Lake. Some of our members already have these types of buildings.

Vince Heiny from Oliver Lake has volunteered to collect written objection and asked that we share in case any of you want to get signatures. Feel free to edit/modify that proposed written objection as you deem appropriate. If anyone gets these signed, you could email them back to Vince and he will see they are presented to the Plan Commission if you do not attend in person. Vince Heiny 260 348 6721 or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
At the present time the lake association has not taken a position on these proposed changes, but since they may affect your rights and restrict your future use of your lots, the association wanted to be sure you are made aware of this and are afforded the opportunity to be heard.

Despite mother nature and some rain, the PLCC Halloween Party. bonfire and hayride went off. Here are some pictures. Plenty of fun, good music and food was had by all who attended.
There has been a break in and robbery on the lake. A resident asked the PLCC today to notify the other residents that they were robbed at 5am on Thursday. They want to remain anonymous but wanted to get the word out so others were aware this is going on. They did file a police report.
We just completed our 2019 PLCC Rummage Sale. This annual event was started many years ago when a group of teenagers wanted to fund the construction of our current tennis court and they were given the daunting task of paying for it. Involvement in the PLCC events is important for the funding of the many projects that preserve the natural resources from loss, waste or harm in and around the lake.
We are pleased to announce that we increased our sales by 30% over previous years. We would not be successful without all of you who donated your “treasures”.
Thank you to the following individuals and neighbors that donated their time and hard work to make this event a success.

Thank you Steve for your efforts and donation of time and equipment. Recycling is one of the many aspects of the Pretty Lake Conservation Club and it is great to see volunteer’s like you pitching in.
