Boat Shelter Survey
Current zoning regulations do not allow construction of structures within forty (40) feet of the highwater mark of a river or a lake. This includes boathouses. A boathouse established before this zoning regulation was put into effect can be maintained but cannot be altered or rebuilt if torn down.
The Planning Commission is considering a recommendation to amend the zoning ordinance to allow boat shelters (roof but no sides, such as the image below) over boat wells on the Cheboygan River, Indian River and Lower Black River and any canal connected to them.
Your completion of the Boat Shelter Survey would provide valuable information to the Planning Commission in their consideration of this issue.
This survey has only four (4) questions and should take only a couple minutes to complete. The survey will be open for responses until June 30, 2017. The Planning Commission is very appreciative of your time and your input.
