Annual Meeting Reminder
The 2020 Annual Meeting of the Loch Alpine Improvement Association will be held on Wednesday, March 25, in Webster Township Hall. Association members will receive by mail an Annual Meeting packet at least 20 days prior to the meeting, in accordance with LAIA By-laws. The packet will include the formal notice and meeting agenda, the proposed budget for the fiscal year April 2020 – March 2021, brief bios on each of the candidates for the Board of Directors (there will be 4 openings on the Board this year), Committee reports, and the proxy ballot for members’ votes on the forthcoming annual assessment and for Board candidates. All members as of February 18 in good standing (paid up on the current annual assessment) are urged to participate and vote. 
Questions can be directed to
Still Time to Cast
If you didn’t take the Loch Alpine fishing survey a few weeks ago, take heart – the online survey will remain open until February 7. For members who fish in our lakes, your input will help us learn more about the amount of fishing activity on Loch Alpine lakes, perceptions of fish population and diversity, quality of fish catches, and the balance between “keep” or “release” of fish caught.
If you fish in our lakes, occasionally or often, please click here to take the survey. Individual responses will not be shared. Biggie-that-got-away stories will not be believed.
Safety and Security Update
If you can’t use your garage and you park your car(s) in your driveway overnight, please remember to take valuables out of the car, or hide them from sight, and lock your car doors. Conceal the garage door opener in your car to prevent a thief from using the opener to access your home. 
For those who install shoulder stakes to help keep our snow plows on the road along your lot, it is helpful to install stakes at least 12 inches in from the edge of the pavement, and pushed 3 – 4 inches into the ground to help them stand up to snow and ice spray from the plows. Stakes with reflective tape also make it easier for drivers to see them in the dark.
Litigation Update
Nothing has changed since our last update on the litigation between A2C2 Partnership and LAIA about the golf lots. June 8 has been set for the jury trial. The trial will be open to the public. The Board will continue to provide information to the community as trial preparations proceed.
