Respect Your Neighbors
Decent respectable neighbors treat their neighbors and their property the same way they want their neighbors to treat them and their property.
More and more people are choosing to live on Wall Lake year round. This means that this is their home, and not a weekend escape from another city. They work, they have doctor’s appointments in the morning, and excessive noise late at night disrupts their lives. Please remember that noise travels louder and farther over water than land. Also, lake living is compressed living, and sounds travel easily between adjacent homes due to close proximity.
Please note that Hope Township has a Noise Ordinance law. (Click "Noise Ordinance" to open a printable copy of Hope Township's Noise Ordinance.
The ordinance states that it is a violation of the law to make noise that disrupts neighbors between the hours of 10:00 PM and 7:00 AM.
Please don't allow your dogs to leave your property. This will prevent feces from appearing on neighbor’s lawns, and prevent injury and litigation from dog bites. Also, barking dogs are subject to Hope Township’s Noise Ordinance law.
