There have been multiple instances of visitors using our beach and fishing near the dam without a member present. As a reminder, just because a guest knows a member doesn’t give them access to use our lake at any time. All guests must be accompanied by a member in our common areas or they can be asked to leave. Sylvan Lake is a private community and we appreciate your cooperation.
Open Burning Ban Extended
The Lake County Board voted to extend the open burning ban until August 12th, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a reminder, small recreational campfires or cooking fires are permitted so long as dry seasoned firewood is used and smoke is not a nuisance to neighbors. This ban is primarily aimed at preventing yard waste and garbage from being burned which generates much more smoke.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please contact the Lake County office at (847) 367-5511.
Boat Safety Class
The Countryside Fire Protection District is hosting a free boat safety class on Saturday, August 15th, 2020. It’s recommended for anyone born after 1998 that would be operating a motorized watercraft. Registration is limited to 20 students and there are still spots available. See the attached flyer for more information.
