Lake Minnetonka is a valuable recreational resource for a large number of people in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, Minnesota, and the nation. The Lake is also a valuable ecological resource that provides drainage control and a habitat for a wide range of wildlife. The Lake is subject to increasing pressures from the development of adjacent shoreland areas and from increasing recreational uses.
Regulations are established in order to balance the human use of the Lake and protect this great natural resource. The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) Board of Directors over the years has adopted a comprehensive Code of Ordinances to manage and regulate a wide variety of activities on Lake Minnetonka. Please view the code and handout for more information about these regulations.
