About the Workshop:
 
Northwest Michigan is blessed with outstanding water resources that draw people to our part of the state. Protecting inland lake shorelines is vital to economic development and environmental protection. This program is designed to introduce planning and zoning officials to the tools, techniques and challenges associated with shoreline protection zoning standards.
 
 
Topics:
 
  • How to assess the situation on your inland lakes
     
  • Maps and data resources
     
  • Master Plan goals and objectives for shoreline protection
     
  • How to use an aerial photo to identify problem areas
     
  • Zoning ordinance options for setbacks, buffer strips, shoreline erosion control structures, lot area coverage, and site plan review
     
  • Practical considerations: what an ordinance can and can’t do, trade-offs and enforcement challenges
     
  • How shoreline regulation fits with voluntary approaches
