Fishing off the west side of the peninsula
The Long Lake Peninsula is a pleasant and quiet private community of about 195 homes; a great place to live, raise children, or retire. We are only 12 minutes from downtown Traverse City, as well as just a few miles from the Interlochen Center for the Arts, and 30 minutes from Lake Michigan.
A feature that distinguishes us from other communities is the fact that there is only one road onto Long Lake Peninsula. Thus, traffic is slowed and residents are able to enjoy walking, jogging, biking, rollerblading, and even cross country skiing.
This online resource is designed to help you get to know more about the neighborhood and the people who live here.
As many of you know, we have had an increase in the number of year-round, seasonal as well as short term rentals on the peninsula. Four LLPA board members attended the recent Long Lake Township meeting to discuss rentals. The township and the state are looking at ways to manage problems that arise due to these rentals.
If this is an issue that concerns you, please consider joining the LLPA Rental Committee to discuss our local concerns and come up with ideas for managing rental properties on the peninsula. Bob Kennedy is chairing this committee. For more information please contact Bob at email@example.com .
We look forward to hearing your ideas and concerns as we move forward.
Long Lake Township posted a survey on the webpage www.longlaketownship.com for submittal of any additional comments or for those wanting to submit an email address to be kept up to date with progress on this issue.
Fall is coming and there is a lot of deadwood on the Peninsula. Clean out those woods and impress the neighbors with your spiffed up property. Remember that YOU are responsible to keep your road edges clear of debris and your vegetation should not hang out over the road or obstruct clear views and passage of vehicles and people.
Aerial Bucket Services of Long Lake Township has agreed to chip again for us. Tom Parks will send out a crew to chip through the peninsula on Friday Oct. 27 & more (if necessary). You will pay them directly with a check or through the invoice he sends you.
- Bring your piles to the road edge or drive edge (for those with long drives) and mark with a white trash bag(s) with your address written on it in permanent marker. When you stack a pile, put the butt ends towards the road or drive. Several small piles are better than one huge pile. This will all affect your cost.
- Call or email Tom to let him know you will be participating and give him your address. He can be reached at: Aerial Bucket Service 929-3131 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Tom will drive through early in the week to scope out the workload and make a list of chipping day participants. He charges $200/hour – a car-size pile of brush will cost roughly $50 to chip. You may have multiple piles on the same property- just mark them so he knows. Chips will be blown back into your woods unless you let him know otherwise
- You can give Tom a check on Chipping Day or send a check in response to his invoice.
This is a chance to clean up the peninsula & get some exercise too!
Thanks for keeping the Peninsula beautiful and safe!
