Strawberry Lake Weed Control Program

The first weed control application in 2024 for Strawberry Lake will take place on
Monday, June 3rd. Aqua-Weed Control, Inc. will be posting notices on May 31st, 2024.

With the mild winter and less ice and snow covering the lake this past winter the weeds have had a faster start on their growth than last spring. As the Township website indicates, the Township hired Progressive AE Water Resources Group to manage the weed control program, and they are out on the water to survey the entire lake to monitor the lake condition and survey the lake before each application. Expect it to take up to about 2 weeks to see a significant change in the lake after the application/treatment date.

Hamburg Township posts information and updates on the “Aquatic Weed Control S.A.D.” that started in 2023 on the township website. The direct link to this information is: https://www.hamburg.mi.us/resident/aquatic_weed_control_sad/index.php
You can easily sign up for updates using the “Sign up for notifications” link on the bottom of the home page on the township website.

There is also a new updated Hamburg Township Fertilizer Ordinance that became effective March 29, 2024. You can find a link to this new ordinance on the Aquatic Weed Control information page linked above.

Join Us This Saturday to Strengthen Our Sea Wall: Volunteers Needed!

This Saturday, April 20, 2024, at 10:00 AM, we’re coming together to fortify the sea wall at Association Park by adding more rocks. Your help would make a big difference!

The task will be quick, especially with many hands on deck. For efficient rock transportation, we recommend using two-wheel carts. If you have one, please bring it along with a pair of gloves.

Let’s make this a community effort to protect our beloved park. We look forward to seeing many of you there and appreciate your support in advance!

Join the Strawberry Point Bluffs HOA Board: Shape Our Community’s Future

Dear Strawberry Point Bluffs HOA Members,

We’re excited to announce that the Strawberry Point Bluffs Homeowners Association’s annual meeting is set for April 16, 2024, at the Hamburg Senior Center. This year, we’re looking to fill three of our six board positions, including two lake side roles and one non-lake side role. Notably, at least one lake side position will become available as a current member has decided not to seek re-election. This presents a unique opportunity for members who haven’t previously served, or those who haven’t been on the board in a while, to step forward and play an integral role in our community. Serving on the board is an excellent way to connect with neighbors and contribute positively to our neighborhood. If you’re interested in making a difference and want to learn more about running for a board position, please reach out to us at board@strawberrypointbluffs.org or contact any of our current board members directly. We greatly value your involvement and look forward to potentially welcoming new members to our team!
