The valve has been closed and the lake level is rising quickly. You may notice some improvements around the Lake this spring. The
Boat Launch was inspected in the fall and found to be unsafe and in need of substantial repairs. The repairs look good, are quite sound structurally, and should last for a long time. Sediment ponds across North Shore Trail from the stumps were cleaned out as was the 'swimming/wading' area at
Shoshone Park. [We never did get DEP approval of the work we wanted to do to prevent the stormwater overtopping of North Shore Trail that has been occurring once or twice a year since the hiking/biking trail went in, so we did what we could without it.] A number of folks took advantage of the lowered Lake level to do their own dock repairs as well. We feel we need to fix the stormwater overtopping North Shore Trail before we dredge the channel between Shoshone Park and Shoshone lots 31-35 since stormwater is the culprit carrying the sediment there. The road and drainage ditch work will not require a future Lake drawdown but the dredging will.
The Lodge will re-open by the end of April. Rumors of the Lodge being sold are just that; rumors. We can remain hopeful a deal will still happen, though. In any event count on the Lodge being open for this season.
Northwinds is planning their reopening but certainly not before Easter. More snow is scheduled through all of next week.
Indian Lake Golf Club will
not be reopening this spring. Last year's sale fell through, no buyers are currently in the picture, and we are looking at creative ways to keep the property viable as a community resource of some sort, rather than it being neglected and becoming overgrown.
The Marina is gearing up for this year’s boating season so get your boats and dock-work lined up and stop by if you need something new.
