Park Township recently received recommendations from the Michigan DNR for No Wake Zones on Lake Macatawa. These proposed No Wake Zones are the result of a public hearing conducted by the DNR in Park Township in May, 2016.

The proposals for four No Wake or restricted hours zones are shown on the following pages. The proposals include:

  • Lake Macatawa (near the channel)
  • The Narrows
  • Big Bay
  • Pine Creek Bay

Please note that the Township Board will review these recommendations at our June meeting, which will be held on June 8, 2017.

The Pak Township Board must either accept or reject each recommendation from the DNR within 60 days of receipt of the proposals, which are dated April 28, 2017. The Board cannot alter the recommendations proposed by the DNR.

At the June 8, 2017 meeting, there will be an opportunity for the public to comment prior to the Board vote.

Written communication regarding any of the four(4) No Wake Zone recommendations is welcome and be emailed or sent via US Mail prior to the 6/8/2017 meeting.
