We hope that you are able to enjoy some well deserved time off from your service to Dixie Lake.

The Dixie Lake Improvement Board was established under Part 309 (Inland Lake Improvements) of Michigan's Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. In accordance with the act, a lakefront property owner, a representative from each local unit of government abutting the lake, the county water resources commissioner (or designee), and a county commissioner sit on the board.

In 2022, the Dixie Lake Improvement Board held a public hearing on a five-year improvement program for Dixie Lake. A primary focus of the program is the control of nuisance aquatic plant growth. Plant control activities in Dixie Lake are coordinated under the direction of the lake board's environmental consultant, Progressive Companies.

The Dixie Lake Improvement Board is separate from, but works with, the Dixie Lake Homeowners Association (DLHA). Click here to visit the DLHA website.
