Dear Lake Association Colleagues:
Now is the time to contact our state senators and Assembly members to voice our concerns about the shoreland zoning provisions slipped into the state budget (Act 55) in June.
Below is a sample letter that includes key points that we hope will make it easy for your members to contact their legislators directly. Some may wish to use the sample over their own signature/s. Preferably, many will use the information in the sample to draft a letter in their own words.
Either way, it is important to include at least a sentence or two about your concerns/fears/issues affecting your lake and your family as a result of the shoreland zoning provisions. Your personal concerns are a powerful message.
