Winter PictureLong Lake Peninsula online

The Peninsula is a pleasant and quiet 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.

2016 Cookie Exchange

You are invited to the Ladies
17th Annual Long Lake Peninsula

Date: Wednesday, December 7th, 2016
Time:  7 PM
Place:  Nancy Grote, 1984 W Outer Drive

Here are the guidelines:

  1. Bring 4 dozen of your favorite homemade Christmas cookies
  2. Arrange cookies in a basket or platter so attendees can view and choose.
  3. Bring a large container (Tupperware) to transport your selected cookies Home.
  4. Please BYOB- or there will be nonalcoholic punch served.
  5. Come share some laughter with your neighbors

The Grote’s Home is at the very end of Outer Drive West, down a pretty steep Hill. Depending on the weather, it could be a challenge. We suggest carpooling if possible, with someone that has a four wheel drive. If the weather is bad, and you do not have a four wheel drive,  you can park at the top on the Hill and Dick Grote will drive folks up and down.

No need to RSVP
Happy Baking, we’ll see you soon!

The Votes are In

Thank you all who voted in the decision to upgrade our entry sign.

The winner was Proposal   “E”.  This proposal involved maintaining the current sign with sanding and painting of posts and replacing of back panels that hinge for easier name maintenance. Also it involves  refurbishing the loons.  The contact people for this proposal are Kurt Schroeder and Jim McCall.

We expect the work to start on the sign in the spring and be done and welcoming our summer visitors  and residents back for Memorial Day.

It will be nice to see our refurbished sign looking spiffy for the new summer season!

We want to thank those who worked on proposals and for all you who voted for your interest in this community. Extra thanks to our secretary Juleen Jenkins Wahl for many, many hours devoted to updating the web and ballot info over the summer and fall.

Please consider helping with the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the sign by contacting Kurt Schroeder at 231-620-1645 and for information on getting your name on the sign.

There are many other small and large community projects that need to be done on an ongoing basis……..please  lighten the burden and cost by pitching in to keep our park, boat launch, roads and intersections free of gravel, leaves sticks and trash. Consider joining an ad hoc committee to help the board with a special project.

We are still looking for a volunteer(s) to sponsor and run the FUN RUN/walk in the summer.

You Just Can’t Hide that PENINSULA Pride!!  Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Dog Ordinance

We have had a few dog problems in the last few months. If you encounter an aggressive, unattended dog please call the animal control officer at 995-6080 or ask 911 to get her to come out. Also, please call a board member and let them know. If is helpful if you can get a picture of the dog unleashed and off the property. We want to be sure the peninsula is a safe place for everyone to walk.

Please be a responsible pet owner and neighbor by remembering that the LLPA rules do allow pets but you must have your pet under control and ALWAYS bring a bag to clean up after your pet. It is extremely intimidating to other members to be charged at by an unleashed dog, even if it is just exuberant and friendly. Not all neighbors are dog lovers or have the balance to withstand a dog jumping on them. Also, be sure your guests understand peninsula rules as well.

LLPA follows the Grand Traverse County dog ordinance which states:

The Reasonable Control and Confinement of Dogs
Section IV, Item 4
As amended and approved May 23, 1972
Reasonable Control
It shall be unlawful for any owner to allow any dog to stray beyond his premises unless under reasonable control of some person or when engaged in lawful hunting, accompanied by his owner or custodian. Reasonable control in residential areas shall mean by a leash not over (6) feet long in length made of leather or other durable material.
