So why is an association necessary and why is it important for me to participate?
1. To preserve lake quality and the value of your property.
2. Monitor zoning activity and to lobby to protect the integrity of the entire lakes area.
3. Uncover your priority maintenance and safety issues and pursue them with the cities of Walled Lake and Novi.
4. Provide more powerful, coordinated representation at monthly City Council proceedings in both cities.
5. And most importantly, create opportunities for neighbors to get to know each other better, making the entire area safer, friendlier, and more enjoyable.
Voting membership is open to anyone who owns lake frontage property or property with deeded access to Walled or Shawood Lakes. Please join today and support your community with the pro-rated $15 membership fee (yearly fee is $25), and wherever possible, your active participation. Proceeds go to communication, event costs, state filings, lake testing and analysis. Mail your check, payable to Lake Area Homeowners Association, to P.O. Box 12, Walled Lake, MI 48390. Please complete and return survey below.
Non-voting associate memberships are available for area businesses for $75/year, which includes a presence through the year on the LAHA website, one month of premium positioning on the site, and one mention in the LAHA quarterly member email.
BENEFIT OF BEING A MEMBER:
Novi members who utilize Duncan Disposal for waste pick up will receive approximately a 25% discount of their quarterly bill. Approximate annual savings are $55, excluding yard waste pickup fees. LAHA's pricing of $37.74 per quarter includes yard waste pickup, which is an extra cost for non-members.
Upcoming Event: The next meeting and social will be at Casey’s Sports Pub and Grill on August 25th. There will be hot and cold appetizers with a cash bar for beverages. Please RSVP by contacting Beth Adams by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call
248-926-8990 by August 18th. As always, we want to continue to grow our membership.
