Docks and Moorings


The purpose of the wharf & mooring program is to reduce congestion, overcrowding, safety and hazards along the lakeshore, while preserving riparian rights of lakefront owners. To ensure equity among lakefront owners as well as accomplish the goals of the program, the Commission has developed specific design limitations on size, shape, and placement and number of docks allowed per amount of lakefront owned, as well as general standards which include assessment of project impacts on navigation, aesthetics, congestion and neighborhood character.

A permit is required for new construction or modification of a dock or mooring. Docks and moorings must be registered annually.
