PIPELINE MAGAZINE ARTICLE -- Here is an article on Lake Mitchell prepared by our consultant Jennifer Jermalowicz-Jones that appeared  in the magazine Pipeline. Click here...


The Lake Mitchell website has a brand new look and some exciting new changes. All of the information that was on the former website is still here, but the updated site has major improvements. Perhaps most significant is the added capability for mobile phones and tablets. All the links and photos available on the main site are now available on a new mobile site. Both the standard view and the mobile view have the same address:

For navigation, when viewing the site on a computer, all the links are along the left side of the pages. Some of the page links have sub-pages, so clicking on a main page will reveal more pages under that category. (For example, clicking on Weed Control brings forward seven more pages.) To return back to the main menu, just click the Home page at the top. A listing of all the pages on the site can be accessed via the Site Page List link in the menu or by clicking the button on the bottom of each page. 

For navigation on phones and tablets, notice the three horizontal lines at the top left corner of the site. Touch that and the full menu appears.

The 2016 Lakesider

If you received this newsletter, please consider saving the board the $2 it costs to print and mail this newsletter by reading it online at (We would rather use our money to fight milfoil than print and mail newsletters). All the contents of the newsletter are available online plus photos, minutes of our meetings, and features about Lake Mitchell not found in our annual newsletter. Email us at and we will add your email to our list which has over 350 addresses.


Benefits of being on the email list: notifications when the lake will be treated, reminders of upcoming meetings. If weather events such as floods, ice storms, or heavy snows, which could possible damage property, occur emails may be sent. These are especially appreciated by Association members who are not lakeside residents. The email list will not be sold or offered to anyone and will only be used for Lake Mitchell Improvement Board and Association business.
