The Impact of Local Government on

Lakes and Other Natural Resources

Lakes face a perilous existence, and lake residents, who have sacrificed greatly to enjoy lake-living, face ever-increasing challenges to their natural resource and way of life.

Lakes are constantly aging.  Today, because of aquatic invasive species, lakes suffer from greater threats than in the past.  We believe that it is local government's legal, moral, and fiscal responsibility to protect lakes and other natural resources.

Hope Township Land Use Plan states:

“A defining characteristic of Hope Township will be its woodlands, open lands, drainage network, healthy wetlands and lakes, natural character, and wildlife habitat.”  “Hope Township will strike a balance between the area’s cherished rural character and a variety of small-scale employment opportunities.”

Hope Township Zoning Ordinance states:

“The general health, safety, and welfare of the township will be protected.”

Print and mail a complaint form:  The Hope Township Zoning Enforcement officer works part-time and prioritizes written complaints over telephone complaints.  A complaint form may be printed from the Hope Township website via the link below, filled out anonymously, and mailed or hand delivered to Hope Township:
