LMCD is Considering a Rule Change

Earlier this summer, we launched a thorough review process that included hosting a public listening session, gathering data, reviewing research, and connecting with member cities and boating industry leaders. You can learn more about this process on our Boat-Generated Wakes Review page. As a result, one step the LMCD is considering is updating the rule on watercraft speeds near the shoreline. The new ordinance would place a five-miles-per-hour speed limit on all boats within 300 feet of shorelines, beaches, docks, anchored boats, and swimmers. This would be an increase from the current 150-foot distance. A draft of this proposed ordinance is available for review here.

Before the LMCD board votes on the new rule, they want to hear from you. We invite you to attend our next board meeting to learn more about the proposed rule change and share public comments.
