Lake Weeds

With the return of the sunshine the lake weeds have returned and are breaking the surface around the lake. We have been monitoring the growth and have tentatively planned for a treatment the week of June 19th. More info to follow. FLPOA has a razor rake for loan by any member who want to borrow for cutting down the plant growth near their docks. Contact Bob Dolphin for arrangements (bob_dolphin@msn.com).

Lake Filling

The date is not official yet but the drainage district has agreed to an early raising of the water level in Fairview Lake. Prepare the lake to start filling on Monday April 24th. FLPOA will sent out a flier confirming this date.

Meeting Thursday – Trammell Crow Development

We have received a package from the City of Fairview forwarding Trammell Crow’s application to the city regarding the portion of the development in Fairview. There will be a meeting at 7 PM the Rieffs’ house (20101 NE Interlachen) on Thursday, March 23rd to discuss the Fairview application. All interested residents are invited.

Runaway Boat

There is a 14′ black aluminum rowboat grounded in the green space near Blue Heron Shores Dr. Bring your waders and oars. I think you can walk there from the community access at Blue Heron & 202nd.

Destruction of east lakeshore wet land


Maybe if I had attended the meetings of FLPOA i wouldn’t be surprised by the changes underway at the east shore of the lake. Construction Equipment is on the lake shore that has always been forested. No more, The trees have been knocked down, the landscape turned into mud, bushes and plants de-nuded. The area has been a sanctuary for birds and animals. Osprey, Eagles, white egrets, herons and beavers have been visible amongst the thick foliage. No more. I don’t know what is planned for the area but is sad to see the transformation from a wet land to a development, When we moved to the lake shore in 1997 a ripparian zone prohibited construction within 35 feet of the shoreline. Apparently our wetlands along the lake shore are no longer protected. I am sad to see the change.
