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.

Chipping Day Friday October 14, 2016

Fall Chipping Day will be Friday October 14, 2016. Residents are responsible for cleaning up their own brush and debris at the roadside. Your brush should not obstruct views and trees and branches below 15 feet must be trimmed back. Make the peninsula a safer and cleaner place by taking down dead trees and cleaning up brush. Get those piles chipped before Winter! Once again, the LLPA is organizing this event but it is voluntary and we are not accepting checks or providing volunteers. You will pay the tree service directly yourself but you are not obligated to participate,

Aerial Bucket Services of Long Lake Township is chipping for us again. Tom Parks and his crew will chip through the peninsula on Friday October 14 & more (if necessary). You will pay them directly with a check or through the invoice he sends you.

1. 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.
2. Call or email Tom to let him know you will be participating. Give him your address. He can be reached at: Aerial Bucket Service 929-3131 or by email at: tom.abs@gmail.com.
3. Tom will drive through early in the week to scope out the workload and make a list of chipping day participants. He will charge $200/hour – a car-size pile of brush would 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
4. You can give Tom a check on Chipping Day or send a check in response to his invoice.
Thanks for keeping the Peninsula beautiful and safe!

Can/bottle recycle drive

Due to popular demand by our residents we have been asked to again sponsor the can/bottle recycle drive for our association. This year we would like to
use the proceeds to refurbish two picnic tables at the pavilion.

As in previous years a container is set up as you enter the peninsula. Please rinse out your recyclable cans/bottles before placing them in the container.

Thank you

Thank you to the Bylaw Committee of Alan Horstman, Mark Walkowiak, Jennifer Abel, Dick Grote, Nancy Zylstra and Therese Waters for completing the arduous task of updating and amending the bylaws. This was a project that took all winter and involved a lot of research. We consulted with the County, township, our insurance agent as well as attorneys and members. The Board accepted the by-law changes at its May meeting. By-laws are posted on the website and a copy will be available at the Little Library and at the Whiteboard.

The LLPA is now up to date with more modern, relevant by-laws.

If you have questions, please consult a board member.
